Lukuba Island Lodge is set under masses of large fig trees and flanked by granite monoliths on one of the picturesque Lukuba bays. There are countless species of birds and wildlife such as the nile monitor lizard, and vervet monkeys. Lukuba is undisturbed by and away from the local fishing villages that make up the rest of the habitation of the island on lake victoria.
Guests are met in the town of Musoma by the manager and then escorted to the staging point for departure on board one of the lodge boats. The journey to the island takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Boats are professionally equipped with radio communications, GPS navigators, safety equipment, game fishing rods and tackle, and depth and fish finders. Lukuba Island Lodge guests have caught plenty of Nile Perch, ranging in size from 15 to 162 pounds. Guests may also choose to try some of the more traditional methods of fishing using bamboo fly-fishing rods, as the local fishermen have been doing for hundreds of years around the lake.
