And all rooms have beautiful views of Lake Victoria.
From this comfortable base, all of Entebbe’s main attractions are easily accessible. Lake Victoria is a wonderful location for wildlife lovers. You can expect to see mammals such as hippo, marshbuck, reedbuck, waterbuck, otters, marsh mongoose, cane rat, and giant otter shrew, while the bird count includes papyrus canary, blue-headed coucal, and white-winged swamp-warbler. The botanical gardens, bordering the lake, are also worth a visit. Highlights here are hornbills, Marabou stork, and black-and-white colobus monkey – and the gardens host events throughout the year, colobus monkey feeding among them. Fans of primates will also enjoy an excursion to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, and if you have ever wished to play ‘Spot the Spoonbill’ you may do so in earnest at the Mabamba marshes. Entebbe’s Uganda Wildlife Education Centre makes for an interesting trip, and golfers will be keen to tee off at the city’s very scenic golf course. The city itself teems with bars, cafés, and restaurants, offering a scrumptious mix of local and international cuisine.
