PINEAPPLE BAY

Just lounge on the sparkling waters of Lake Victoria when you get to pineapple bay. This is where you can charter a fishing-boat and head off with your rod and tackle to sport fish for the legendary Nile Perch. Just after or before sport fishing, you can arm yourself with binoculars and roam for kilometers over this unspoiled island paradise in search of hundreds of birds who make this their home. And then come back and plunge into the dark blue pool or go with the chef to the organic gardens and choose your own pineapple, your own avocado and your own greens to have for lunch.

Pineapple Bay is where you can take your shoes off and keep them off until you get back to the mainland. You can climb to a breezy hilltop and enjoy an ice-cold sundowner with a 360 degree view, or lie in your bed with your morning tea and in your view is nothing but Lake Victoria and all her glory not forgetting you can sidle on up to the boat bar and devise your own cocktail (but it should probably have pineapple in it, as we grow the sweetest juiciest ones around). Come and let go, unwind and stay awhile.
