The ferry that runs across Lake Victoria from Bukoba to Mwanza is now back in operation!  The boat trip saves 4 hours of driving so it is a blessing when you only have a short time! It doesn’t run every day so we recommend that you plan your trip accordingly.

To pick up a ticket:

Call Mary +255 713526649, Mr Super +255 757868 974 or Aaron +255 716363759

OR you can take a taxi (tsh 3,000/) to Kiroyera Beach Leisure Site where the office is located

OR you can walk to our office in town – many people know us!

It is 20 minutes walk from Bus station. You will get the ticket at the office and then you can arrange your transfer to the boat that evening. The beach campsite is a pleasant place to rest and wait for your boat transfer.
