Incredible wildlife is everywhere you look in Entebbe. Familiarise yourself with the local animals with a visit to Entebbe Botanical Gardens, where botany students will teach you all about the park’s flora, fauna, and 115 different types of bird. For a more hands-on experience, head to the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre to meet chimps, white rhinos, lions, leopards and shoebill storks, and book a behind-the-scenes tour or ‘keeper for the day’ package to get even closer to your favourite exotic creatures.

Go island-hopping

Whether you’re craving a relaxed beach day or a unique Eastern-African experience, the islands of Lake Victoria have something to offer. Swing by the Ssese Islands and relax on your pick of glorious white beaches, or, for a complete alternative, head to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary to feed and cuddle the 49 orphaned chimps that call it home. If you choose to stay the night, you can also enjoy the sanctuary’s evening campfires, which invite you to explore Uganda’s rich culture through song, dance and folklore.

Spend some time on the water

Entebbe’s extraordinary location on the shores of Lake Victoria grants several opportunities to engage with the water. Treat yourself to a sunset cruise, spy some wild shoebills in the Mabamba Swamp or laze away your days with a spot of fishing. Surrounded by charming lakeside fishing villages, there are plenty of places to pick up the sport - and maybe even catch yourself a Nile Perch, the world’s largest freshwater fish, for dinner.

Book a flash bike tour

Cycling around Entebbe with the help of a personal tour guide can be a fantastic way to get to know the area - particularly if you’re not staying for very long. Zip through gardens, sandy beaches, ports and exotic markets: and maybe hop off to taste a delicious locally-grown banana while you’re there, too.
