Overview & Features

Banda is one of the Ssese Islands. Only 1km by 2km, it was owned by the late King Dom(inic) Symes, an eccentric British Kenyan who has built stone huts for his guests, while settling for a modest castle for himself. Like turning up at Glastonbury after the crowds have gone, to find a few stragglers left by a campfire, Banda is a place where people intend to stay for a few days but end up staying months. A typical day involves eating, hippo-spotting, making your way through the donated book selection, and sitting around a campfire on the beach – all accompanied by Dominic’s homemade banana gin in a plastic kettle.
