Entebbe

4
Nestled on Lake Victoria Peninsula, the laid-back town of Entebbe once served as seat of the colonial government, yet remains widely known as the scene of the 1976 Israeli rescue of hostages kidnapped by Palestinian and German plane hijackers. Home to the Ugandan international airport and in close proximity to the capital, Entebbe offers visitors a pleasant, comfortable base for exploring the nearby national parks and game safaris, as well as boating on Africa's largest lake. Aside from the president's official residence, most attractions in Entebbe foreground the impressive natural surroundings--from walks in the verdant botanical garden, bird-watching, and admiring the animals of the wildlife center, to the many scenic cruises and fishing trips on the lake. Entebbe is in Central Region. Use our Uganda trip itinerary builder app to arrange your visit to Entebbe and any other destinations in Uganda that take your fancy.
