Entebbe is an attractive tropical, verdant town in central Uganda, located on a small peninsula in Lake Victoria, a few hundred meters north of equator and only 40km south of the modern capital Kampala. It was a capital city of Uganda during the early years of the British protectorate.  This bustling town offers its visitor activities like seeing over 300 varieties of exotic plants, admiring black-and-white colobus monkeys and birds in the beautiful Entebbe Botanical Gardens. The rainforest zone of these gardens was the location used during the filming of the original 1940 Hollywood classic, Tarzan.

Other activities include visiting the Jane Goodall Institute’s Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, sunset boat cruises on the lake, or exploring the Mabamba Swamp in search of the fascinating and rare shoebill stork.
