Top 5 things to see and do in Entebbe, Uganda
Entebbe lies on the sandy shores of Lake Victoria and even though it contains Uganda's International Airport, it's very laid-back. Unlike the noisy congested capital city of Kampala, just 28 miles up the road. You might spend one night here on your way to or from your Uganda safari to see gorillas, chimpanzees, tree-climbing lions, hippos and unusual birds.
Here are our top 5 activities in Entebbe:
Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Center - A place to get up close and personal with a variety of animals. The staff are eager to share their knowledge and discuss their conservation efforts.
