With our own hands we have built our idyllic cottage next to the Lake Victoria wetlands. We have one garden with grass and flowers. In our second garden we have spinach, irish potatoes, pumpkins, sukuma wiki, manioc etc. We have electricity only from the sun.
Our cottage is bordering miles of unspoilt wetlands. We are integrated in an organisation of local fishermen who organize cleaning projects, nature walks, wetland boat tours, Lake Victoria boat tours, tree planting projects and more. We welcome volunteers working in the interest of the population and/or the nature.
Our cottage can be accessed by car, although the last 200 meters can be a bit rough and/or slippery. Of course one is also welcome on motorbike, on bicycle or on foot.
Sleeping guests can park inside the compound. Visitors are requested to leave cars and motorbikes on the empty land 50 meters before our place.
From our cottage, guests have direct access with our paddling boat and by foot to miles of unspoilt wetlands with unique swimming possibilities in the lake.
