"Banda Island: ultimate chill out..." Banda Island by Bonobo2005

Banda Island Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 28 photos

Dominique fulfilled his dream and bought an island. A handful of staff takes care of the few hassles in the islandlife. Half a dozen of dogs take care of security.

Some days a fishing boat comes by to pick up a shopping list or to deliver the ordered goods from the mainland. Only necessary if there are guests. And that doesn't happen every week.

Some days a fishing boat brings guests, because he advertises on small scale an all-in stay for 20000 Ush ($12) a day.
"When I asked the girls to come for free, they didn't trust it, but now I'm charging $10, they say, well that's cheap!", Dominique explains.

That's all that happens on Banda Island...

All you need to know is perfectly explained on www.traveluganda.co.ug/banda-island and I promise you: it's all true and there's even more!

    What a special island, you visited. I know it's fun to look at the ants, giving them food and making obstacles. Once I will make a report of another African island where you can do it too !

    Peter, have you been hiding this place from me? It sounds like Paradise - relaxation personified! I could really get into the'ant-watching' thing - used to do a bit of that myself while in Papua New Guinea! Top marks for this page!

    "Antwatching" and "spiderwatching": the paradise for a "zoology-addicted"!!! What a GREAT place; thanks for "discover" it for us.

    Antz! When i was young, I once had them all over my legs & it was a pretty horrifying experience! Sometimes I forget what life was like in those good old days. Thanx for the reminder... it's relaxing to go back in memory, even if only for a few mins!
