Entebbe and Kampala

WHY VISIT ENTEBBE AND KAMPALA

Often overlooked on a trip to Uganda, these two cities are the main entry points for the country, so time spent here will be inevitable. That said, the Botanical Gardens in Entebbe is a fun place for a spot of birding, and the quality of hotels in both cities allows you to indulge in a few home comforts. From Entebbe you can also visit chimpanzee sanctuaries and search for shoebills.  

  • Visit Entebbe’s Botanical Gardens – old Tarzan films were shot here
  • Explore the backstreets and markets of Kampala
  • Visit Mabamba swamp from Entebbe, home to shoebill storks
  • Spend time at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary

 A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ENTEBBE AND KAMPALA

Lazily spread out along the shore of Lake Victoria and straddling the equator, Entebbe exudes a more relaxed atmosphere and tropical charm than the capital, Kampala. boda-boda taxis and chaotic markets characterise Kampala, whereas the open feel of Entebbe, along the shores of Lake Victoria, make the latter a nicer place to spend some time. 

BEYOND THE ORDINARY

Take a leap of faith and explore Kampala’s markets and local street stalls on the back of a boda-boda motorbike, glimpse a side of Kampala rarely seen by tourists.
