Just in case you've got some lose change lying around why don't you buy yourself a small island. Nsonga island is on the picturesque Lake Victoria, 6 miles away from Entebbe in Uganda(East Africa) and less than 10 minutes from shore by speed boat.

This island is 135 acres of natural vegetation, surrounded by white sandy beaches. It's uninhabited and has no permanent buildings. It would make an excellent site for a tourist village with a hotel, cabins, docks, shopping malls, conference rooms, honeymoon suites, camp sites or very private holiday homes. Those who love birdwatching, fishing and boating will love this island.

Nsonga Island is easily accessible from Entebbe International airport. Its immediate neighbour is Bussi island famous for its steady supply of the sweetest pineapples to the mainland. The lake has an abundant population of freshwater fish like tilapia and nile perch, but thankfully, no sharks.

Like most of the areas in this lake region, the weather is exceptionally good. The sun is up promptly at 7:00 AM and it's hot most of the day with cool breezes coming in from the lake. The people of Uganda have always been known to be very friendly and hospitable.
This island is now available for sale. Price US $2M.

If you're just looking for a place to chill out with your family and friends, Africa offers up so many beautiful spots. Zanzibar in Tanzania for instance is a lovely island, with beautiful beaches and boutique hotels and resorts. Known as the Spice Islands (it was an important stop in the spice trade centuries ago) it is one of the few places in the world where saffron is produced. The sugar cane juice and fresh coconut milk are not to be missed.

The lake Victoria Serena Resort is situated right on the shores of Africa's largest lake and between Kampala and Entebbe in Uganda. A lovely location to unwind and nibble on some fresh seafood.

The Obudu Mountain Resort in the Southern part of Nigeria is another breathtakingly beautiful location for a relaxing family break with fantastic views and serenity. Nestling at the top of the mountain, the resort is situated on a plateau at 1576 metres above sea level. The temperate climate is a welcome respite from Africa's tropical heat.

The Obudu Mountain Resort offers a fully equipped gym, two floodlit tennis courts, a squash court and a natural swimming pool. Keen golfers can show their prowess on the hotel’s 9-hole golf course. A major talking point for guests is Africa’s longest cable car system. At 4 km, Obudu Mountain Resort cable car gently transfers guests (and their bags) from the tropical climate at the base of the mountain right to the hotel’s reception area on the mountainside which is often in the clouds and is accompanied by an invigorating drop in temperature.
