Compared to the hectic capital of Kampala, the colonial city of Entebbe is a lot more laid back. For an even more relaxed get-away, board a ferry to the Ssese archipelago with 84 islands in the blue waters of Lake Victoria. Disembark in a paradise on earth, with beautiful white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, flapping fish, fun beach bars and small cabins.
Half of the islands are uninhabited and most are difficult to reach. However, even the relatively more popular islands are still nice and quiet. Swimming is not recommended due to the risk of the infectious bilharzia disease and the presence of hippos and crocodiles. Nevertheless, this is still a wonderful place to spend a few leisurely carefree days. Read on for an overview of 3 dream destinations on the Ssese Islands.
