Saa Nane Island, meaning “eight o’clock island”, has a large variety of reptiles. Hippo, zebra and wildebeest and some caged animals are found within the wildlife sanctuary. This reserve is literally a 95-acre outdoor zoo.
Birdwatchers will enjoy the scenery on Saa Nane while nature lovers can venture onto the rock formations that appear out of the grassy landscape.
Boats depart daily from Mwanza to take tourists to Saa Nane Island. A visit to the island makes for a pleasant day trip.
