Initially the island had Basese people, closely related to the Baganda, although they are talked of as being giants. The men had huge chests with tough muscles and the women had long breats. It is rumored that these women didn’t have to sit to breastfeed, they simply passed they breast through the armpit to the kid on the back to feed. The Basese believed in traditional gods, maybe which is why the islands are associated with spirituality. On Buvuma Island, it is believed if one brings a monkey or an animal of any kind, they will become alike in aspects of the face. This is a good place to go for those that believe in the wrath of the gods and ghost stories.

“Lovely accomodations, and great service!!”

Lovely accomodations, and great service!!

This place does it right. The rooms are individual thatched cottages which are clean, well decorated and offer great views. The common areas, and outside areas are also excellent, and the bar and reception area feature some the most comfortable seating I’ve encountered in Uganda. The food was good, although the buffet style meals were overshadowed by the pork muchomo i had on my last night. It was so good that I considered staying an extra night just to eat it again! The service is attentive and efficient. This will be my first choice for lodging if I should ever return to the Ssese islands again.
