Overview

From the Yellow Haven Lodge we have setup a number of Hiking and Cycling tracks for guests. All tracks start with a boat trip from the Yellow Haven jetty on Lake Victoria. The tracks are in a nature area across Murchison Bay. You can use your own bike, hire a bike from us, with or without a guide. The tracks are also available on Endomondo Sports Tracker. For those who want to do more we have now also a 2 day track. Day one cycling to Kizilu and then crossing by boat to Banda Island. The second day you relax on Banda Island and cycling take around 2 PM the boat back to Yellow Haven or take a boat to Masaka Road for further travelling.
