Lake Victoria Island Cycling Tour from Kampala
Only a 30-minute boat ride away from busy Kampala lies a magical place without traffic, fumes and hustler’s hassle. The area offers some of Uganda’s best mountain bike trails which will lead you through lovely villages and beautiful nature. There are some nice climbs and the track will contain a mix of wide gravel fire roads and single tracks. Experience encounters with the friendly locals and discover the real Uganda.
The ride is around 20km long, goes at an easy pace and is suitable for beginners. Our guides know the area very well and can adjust the route according to your skill and fitness level. On the way we will stop for some delicious Ugandan snacks before we will settle down for drinks on the beach of Lake Victoria at our final destination.
We will gather at Ggaba Beach House gardens at 8am. A 30-minute boat ride will take you across Lake Victoria from where we will start riding. The ride will take about 2-3 hours depending on your skill and fitness level. During the trip we will stop at a typical Ugandan trading center for some local snacks. You will be able to buy water and other things there if needed. At 95% of the trip we will settle down for drinks at one of Lake Victoria's beautiful white beaches. To return home you will have to pedal the last stretch of 2 kilometers to find the boat waiting to take us back to the starting point.
