Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life with a short boat ride (30-45 minutes) from Munyonyo, and find yourself in the secluded paradise of Pineapple Bay on Bulago Island in Lake Victoria. Covering an expanse of 500 acres, Bulago Island offers a tranquil retreat. With the lake enveloping the island, its shores are characterized by rocky outcrops and low cliffs. These lush shores boast fertile soil, adorned with a canopy of trees, while the island's northeast tip houses a small rainforest teeming with diverse forest birdlife.
Your accommodation at Pineapple Bay includes Lake-Facing Cottages, each with a spacious veranda, an indoor sitting area, a large bathroom with a shower and bathtub that offers breathtaking lake views.
Pineapple Bay doesn't just offer stunning views and serene lakeside living. It's also an ideal place for team-building activities and various engaging pursuits. Nature enthusiasts can partake in guided nature walks and birdwatching, while fishing enthusiasts can try their luck at catching Nile Perch and Tilapia. As the sun sets over Lake Victoria, enjoy relaxing sundowner cruises.
For a more active experience, engage in games like chess and volleyball or take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. Close by, the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, just 4 miles from Bulago, offers an excellent opportunity for day trips. Families traveling with kids will find plenty of activities to keep little ones entertained, including pony rides, tractor trips, art sessions, and even fish feeding from the jetty. A pizza-making session with the chef, vegetable garden education, and engaging art projects using recyclable and natural materials are all part of the fun.
