3-days Ssese island safari: An island with an extensive group of islands situated in the northwestern part of Lake Victoria, the second-largest freshwater lake in the world, formed in the 16th century when a tectonic shift caused an elevated basin. Consisting of 84 separate islands, the largest and most accessible is Bugala Island, followed by Bukasa, Bufumbira, and many others. These islands have the same boundaries as the Kalangala district, which does not have any territory on mainland Uganda. The itinerary offers the ultimate experience of Ssese Island’s natural beauty through forest nature walks, a boat ride to the Virgin Islands, and quad biking.
