Hairy Lemon Island

Who we are

Our name came from the original owners who named the island after a pub in Dublin called ‘The Hairy Lemon’ where they met. They are now happily married with two children, still living the Lemon way…

We believe in total relaxation.  Enjoy what the Hairy Lemon has to offer and adopt our ‘Lemon Living’ lifestyle. The Hairy Lemon has been our home for the past 5 years. It is our passion and our personal conservation attempt to save one of the last remaining riverine forest habitats along this upper section of the Nile. We have 12 islands that form our archipelago and we are working hard to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy this pristine environment in which we live.

Our aim is to provide a safe and peaceful haven away from the stresses of modern day living; where you can enjoy wildlife in its natural environment, learn about the preservation of eco-systems and habitats and experience ecologically friendly practices actively at work in the hope that you will appreciate and understand our ‘Lemon Living’ philosophy.
