Absolutely love it at Banda - I've now been twice. Andy has been a fantastic host; couldn't have asked for more. The island is unspoilt and beautiful. Its by no means luxury but for those who don't mind basic living this is Lake Victoria's version of paradise. Food was great too; included for $30 a night makes it super good value.
Call Andy ahead to see if you can help picking up some provisions. The ride over is a bit of a schlep but its worth it. I'd suggest two nights minimum to make the journey worthwhile.
Go & enjoy!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Banda Island, the hidden gem of the Ssese Islands archipelago, is a beautiful place with the most amazing sunsets. Peace and tranquility are at the top of the list, with amazing staff and management making sure nothing detracts. For the adventurous at heart, there is water skiing, wake boarding and a small Laser yacht. We also offer fishing, boat trips, nature walks and have a beach volleyball net waiting for you. In the evening we light a bonfire on the beach so you can watch the lights of the fisherman on the lake. Above all, you can be assured that the people you meet there are friendly and like minded travelers, there to simply enjoy a piece of paradise. And .... Our food is great! ... more less
