Hideaway Gets Makeover

Bulago Island Lodge work on course

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  Feb 25, 2010

After the contractors moved their staff and materials to Bulago Island, work is now on course to turn the Bulago Island Lodge into a fine island resort to match the quality of the other four properties managed by Wildplaces Africa and The Uganda Safari Company, like the Apoka Lodge, Semliki Safari Lodge, Clouds, and the Emin Pasha Hotel in Kampala’s fashionable Nakasero area.

The plans of the proposed rebuilding, including the new main building with lounge and restaurant, and also of the new cottages, have been shown to this correspondent and look very appealing indeed, compared to the previous state of affairs.

It is expected that a site visit will be made possible in due course when building is more advanced, to report back on the transformation of the island resort and give an anticipated re-opening date.

According to several Kampala residents this correspondent spoke with since the announcement, there is keen anticipation towards the re-opening and clear signs the Bulago will re-establish itself as a major weekend hideaway within easy reach from the main starting points in Munyonyo and Garuga, Entebbe.
