Camping in Ssese Islands

This safari also offers you an opportunity to carry out camping in Uganda’s most beautiful islands-Ssesse islands. The Islands lie in the north-western section of Lake Victoria east of Masaka. The mighty Lake Victoria is 68,870 km˛ in size, making it the largest lake of Africa and the second World’s largest inland water body.
Amongst the tropical lakes in the world, Lake Victoria tops the list yet it is the second largest fresh water lake in the world in terms of surface area.

This camping safari therefore will grant you the opportunity to interact with nature and escape from the visually polluted urban areas. The relaxation at the beach is quite an awesome and memorable experience you cannot afford to miss. The 84 lush equatorial Ssese Islands form the worlds of their own given the nice white sandy beaches and the beautiful untouched environment. Their virgin forests teeming with wildlife, delightful empty beaches and friendly islanders all make this destination a place-to-be destination
