(eTN) It was learned that the rebuilding and upgrading of the Bulago Island Lodge, now under the management of Wild Places Africa and The Uganda Safari Company, is well on course. Six brand-new, shore-side cottages are in an advanced stage of construction, as are modifications to the original main building and public areas. Some of the existing old cottages are being re-modeled as family rooms, and a new larger pool will add to the attraction, in particular for families with children coming to stay on Bulago once again when they reopen later this year.
The twin-story cottage, a favorite of visitors under the previous management, is being converted into a spa where treatment programs similar to those available at the Emin Pasha Hotel will be introduced when the new Bulago Island Lodge opens its doors again.
Bulago Island Lodge can be reached within minutes after takeoff from the Kajjansi airfield outside Kampala, and the landing strip on Bulago leads right to the back of the main buildings of the lodge. Alternatively, boat transport from various landing sites is available for visitors, with this journey taking between 45 and 60 minutes. Bulago is the latest addition in the collection of Wild Places Ugandan properties, which include the Emin Pasha Hotel in Kampala’s fashionable Nakasero suburb, the Semliki Safari Lodge, the Apoka Safari Lodge, and the award-winning Clouds Safari Lodge.
