Holidays to Entebbe, Uganda

Entebbe is a relaxed, laid-back town where the connection with nature is palpable. Within Entebbe one can visit the local botanical gardens which is teeming with monkeys, birds, flora and fauna. If a more sporty stroll with gorgeous beach and lake views is what you are after, then a round of Golf at the Entebbe Golf Course would be well worth your time. 

Nearby, The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary provides an excellent opportunity to get close to some of the world’s most extraordinary primates. There is the opportunity to embark on an overnight adventure, starting with a cruise over the waters of Lake Victoria and spending the night on the island which is home to around 50 orphaned chimpanzees. You can also visit the island on a half or full day trip and return after feeding time to Entebbe. 

This charming town of Entebbe is the perfect base from which to adventure to the spectacular Murchison Falls National Park, Jinja, Sesse Islands, Kampala and Kibale Forest National Park. Whether you are using Entebbe as an overnight spot to head to other areas in Uganda or wanting to relax for a day or two, Entebbe is a gorgeous sleepy town sitting quietly on the banks of Lake Victoria with a few hidden gems to explore.

Let's talk
I grew up near the picturesque fishing village of Rye, in East Sussex. However, my heart has always been in Africa since I was a young girl. Having a South African father meant my love for the history and colour of this fantastic continent has been a prominent part of my life, and so getting to travel to seven different countries over the last few years has been a dream come true. One of my highlights was flying in the famous yellow bi-plane across Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.
