Due to it's wide beam, the boat is very stable and sails upright. It was particularly built to meet the conditions of Lake Victoria. The maximum speed is around 20 knots, the average is 8 - 15 knots.
As an individual you can join one of our events. As a group you can rent the boat for any of the Safaris under here at your individual time, create your own Sailing Safari on Lake Victoria. Just inquire about any question you have under 0794 634 845 or write us a message.

Archipelago Safari (6h): 12-6pm. An extended travel in the archipelago that allows you more to participate in sailing "hands on", but there is also time to relax in one of the trampolines, while enjoing fresh food from the lunch box, fresh juice and water (all included).
Naluubale Safari (2d): 11am until 4pm the next day. We will sail about 30km (3-5h) out into the archipelago of Buvuma and land at a camp site on the shore. Barbeque in the evening. The next morning we will go for spotting wildlife like the rare shoebill. There is time for an island walk and if you want, you can visit community projects. Then we set sails and head back to Jinja. With this trip you really get in touch with nature, people and yourself.
