Visit the Ssese Islands

Located in the northwestern part of Lake Victoria, the Ssese is an archipelago consisting of 84 islands. In spite of the islands’ astounding natural beauty, they remain relatively untouched by tourists. The ferry from Nakiwogo Dock, Entebbe, lands in Bugala, the largest of the 84 islands, though it’s advisable to head to Banda, a more relaxed, scenic option.
