A Traveller's Guide to Magnificent Entebbe, Uganda

Entebbe may be a hidden jewel for many people, but for locals, it is a home that has been overlooked as a tourist destination for too long, and an unspoiled location that is seeing global travelers embark on unique Uganda guided tours that they will never forget. The small town of Entebbe is located along the shores of Lake Victoria, approximately 45 minutes from the capital city of Kampala. Known as the home of the old airport, it's a place most people don't consider for their bucket list. But this quiet little town is well on its way to becoming one of the hottest luxury Uganda safari destinations. Entebbe was named by a man called Mugaluka, a former leader of the people living in the area. At the time, the place where Entebbe is now was just a forest called Mugaluka Hill. At the foot of the hill was an area covered by reeds called Entebbe – hence Mugaluka’s choice of name.

Lake Victoria – Visit the shores of perfection

Entebbe’s most beautiful feature is undoubtedly Lake Victoria. As the largest tropical lake in the world (and second largest freshwater lake), it is simply breath-taking. Its shores are home to an abundance of lush vegetation, including palm trees, which add to its tropical atmosphere.


In addition, its crystal clear water offers visibility of up to 100 feet in some areas. This clarity, combined with the bright blue color of the water, makes for some stunning views. Lake Victoria is also home to a massive variety of wildlife, including over 500 species of fish, making it a paradise for nature lovers and a quiet oasis for Uganda honeymoon packages.

Excellent Entebbe experiences

Entebbe is home to many national parks, making it a prime Uganda lodge safari destination. Lake Bunyonyi National Park, Mabira Forest, Kyambura Gorge, and Bumaga Adventure Park all boast a large variety of birds, mammals, trees, and other wildlife.


For the more adventurous, a trip to Kyambura Gorge will take you through a steep mountain path surrounded by lush green trees. But if it’s the quiet life you prefer,  Bumaga Adventure Park is the perfect place to relax at the Lake Victoria shore while enjoying the beautiful views and sounds around the water.

Love the leisure at Serena Golf resort

Golf lovers will be thrilled to learn of the magnificent golf courses throughout Uganda. However, if you are looking for the best the country has to offer, Entebbe is the place to be. Lake Victoria’s Serena Golf Resort is a world-class golfing destination that boasts a championship 18-hole golf course, luxurious accommodation, and a range of facilities and activities to keep guests entertained.


Situated on the shores of Lake Victoria, the resort offers stunning views and a wealth of opportunities for water-based activities. Guests can enjoy fishing, boating, and swimming or simply relax on the beach and enjoy the magnificent scenery.


Entebbe is a beautiful place to visit and a starting point for the perfect Uganda private tour experience.
