Now you can wake up happy at One Minute South, Uganda’s one and only golden sand villa for holiday rental. Make it yours for $600 per night for up to 14 guests or $43 per person.

Uganda’s only holiday villa is 0°01’S (or one mile) south of the equator so everyone crosses the equator when they come to visit us on Bulago Island. “Blissful, paradise, wish we were still there!  The perfect spot for stunning sunsets”.  The cliff top residence enjoys sunrise and sunset every day of the year, surrounded by twenty acres of tranquil gardens including a beach volleyball court in the shade of the citrus orchard.

One Minute South has her own jetty and beach of golden sands secluded but for the birds and occasional frolicking otters.

It also has a beautiful infinity pool,

“The pool and terrace look like something out of a photo shoot with gorgeous beach and lake view all around.”

“The house is stunning and beautifully furnished. Each of the seven bedrooms is decorated in a different style and the bathrooms are modern but stylish; the free standing bath overlooking the veranda is a lovely touch.”

We have a library, lots of movies, DSTV and wireless Internet, compliments of Broadband.

The internationally trained chef is ready to serve you finger-biting food at US$48pp for full board. (Food for children costs US$24 only). This is flexible according to guest’s culinary desires but there is always plentiful supplies of fresh fish, island grown fruit and vegetables.

“The service provided was top notch, with attention paid to the little details and the food was delicious.”

There are also organized boat trips, fishing (for Nile Perch and Tilapia), watersports and all sorts of cruises  – full moon rising, equator hopping or sunset closing.

The One Minute South five hundred acre island was recently described as Uganda’s Riviera. There are opportunities for many adventures including bird-watching, nature trails to walk or cycle. Plus picnics, evening bonfires and visits to Ngamba Island, the neighbouring chimpanzee sanctuary.

If you are looking to an ultimate gateway this weekend, Bulago Island is perfectly located on Lake Victoria, only 18 kilometres east of Entebbe International Airport, and 30 kilometres south of Uganda’s capital, Kampala.

You can take boat or plane. Access to our complimentary boat, The Meridian is through The Waterfront Club, Entebbe (for up to 8 guests). For larger groups One Minute South can arrange reasonably priced charters. The Waterfront Club provides secure parking and lakeside entertainment with bar and restaurant in delightful gardens.

The boat journey takes under an hour, under an awning on a comfortable wood bedecked boat. Maybe the only boat in Africa to have a figurehead. Lifejackets supplied. Or charter a plane from Fly Uganda (The Aeroclub, Kajansi) and land on Bulago Island’s airstrip in less than nine minutes.

Fun, sun and location… tick those boxes, grab your bags and head for One Minute South, a paradise to rejuvenate your soul.
