Sesse Islands provide some nice hotels and it´s a good place to relay after business, safari or so. But at the end, it tale min. 3h hours from Entebbe with the fast ferry or more. And on the islands there´s not much. just relax in a hotel. Swimming may be criticl due to "Bilharziose". It´s getting little bit booring fast,... More

Sese island is 3 hours boat journey from entebbe and it is the best place to be for revealing stress with family .Nice beach on the side of nile river with camp fire and will get live fish to cook. And it is my one of my favorite place and like to visit one more time.

We spent 2 days on the island of Buggala and loved it! The ferry from Entebbe drops you off in Lutoboka where all the nice resorts are. The actual town of Kalangala is not waterfront and a simple Ugandan town. Tip for budget travellers: We stayed at King Fisher campground, cheap and perfect since it's right next to the pier... More

SSese island is the best place to be for revealing stress and being able to be on a holiday with just family .The breeze in the morning and evening calms your body and soul enabling your body to fully relax. What i loved most is the food and the island itself which bring the essence of exploring

three hours fairy ride will take you to one of the sesse Islands ( kalangala Island). Fairy ride is the only way to get to the island. You need to get to dock atleast an hour early to get a sit else you have to stand for three hours. We took the fairy from Entebbe.

Anyway, it s... More

The journey of Water from Entebbe to sesse takes three hours but very enjoyable. You enjoy look at nature throughout the lake , beautiful island and beautiful birds. The taste of fish in Sesse simply irresistable

It's a beautiful lsland on Lake Victoria. But since it was raining heavily we couldn't enjoy the beach much. Ferry ride was good but once on the island the road was pathetic. We braved ourselves for one hour bus ride to our resort. Swimming in the lake water was a big mistake most of us got allergy. We enjoyed walking... More
