|Overview of Tom's Homestay|
Tom's Homestay is a community overnight visit hosted by the family of Tom Karemire on Lake Bunyonyi's Habukomi Island and organised by Edirisa. It has to be booked in advance, as it includes much more than sleeping on a remote island - it is a full-blown cultural tour into the traditional life of the Bakiga.
Edirisa has been bringing trekkers to Tom's since 2005 and over time he developed a brilliant campsite. In 2013 we finally made Habukomi accessible to those guests who might not opt for hiking but still crave for a unique island experience. On the other hand, you can nicely combine it with 5-hour Culture on the Crest or 1-day Islands of Miracles.
The full-board homestay experience entails: professional guidance, a dugout ride to the island and back, a tour of the island by Tom, camping near his house in spacious tents with all the gear provided, a great local dinner enriched by crayfish, a performance of an enanga (traditional string instrument) player and the island dance troupe, stories near the campfire, breakfast with local honey, bananas and chapatis. The price is USD 55 per person.
In case camping isn't your cup of tea, we can easily organise a night boat ride back to your lodge - but then you will miss the beautiful, relaxed Habukomi morning.
