Entebbe offers a great introduction to Uganda’s inland attractions. The legendary Jane Goodall operates a chimpanzee sanctuary on a nearby Ngamba Island. If you won’t be visiting the primate capital jungles, visit the islands, and meet orphaned chimps, it a great alternative. UWEC zoo and the botanical gardens are also close by for a great introduction to Uganda’s wildlife. A canoe boat ride in Mabamba Swamps, where one of the world’s most amazing birds, the shoebill, finds refuge, is a must-visit for birders. Modern shopping malls, local markets, upmarket restaurants, and bars are within walking distance of the Boma hotel.
End the day with sundowners on the magnificent Lake Victoria. A breeze whispers through the air, cool and soothing, as you motor through the lake winds and sip a refreshing cocktail. The evening is yours.
