Bulago Island management deal in doubt


Information was received that the long-term management deal between Bulago Island Lodge’s owners and the Uganda Safari Company appears to have fallen through, in spite of the resort having been closed several weeks ago for the expected renovations and upgrades.

This column reported the deal a while back, including the anticipated re-opening date around Easter 2010, but the latest information at hand suggests that it will not go ahead after all, putting the onus of renovations and marketing back to the owners, the Lake Victoria Sailing Company.

No reasons are presently available as those in the know are either out of town or have not responded to inquiries. It also could not be established if the resort would immediately re-open or remain closed.
