Why Entebbe & Kampala?

The capital of Uganda – Kampala, is the country’s commercial, political & logistical hub, but also one of East Africa’s most friendly & relaxed cities.

Experience A mere 60-minute drive away, you will find the laid-back Entebbe – a modern & picturesque city that is home to the country’s international airport as well as Africa’s largest lake, the beautiful Lake Victoria.

Both Kampala & Entebbe are the ideal pitstop destinations for a gorilla or chimp-trekking safari to Uganda.

Activities There’s lots of things to see and do in Entebbe-Kampala. Visitors to Kampala should make a stop at the National Cultural Centre - commonly known as the National Theatre where guests can enjoy a line-up of live music, film, dance & drama in the auditorium. There are also a variety of restaurants, bars & nightly outdoor events including drumming & comedy nights.

Kampala is also home to the UNESCO listed Kasubi Tombs – the burial site for the kings & the royal family of the Buganda kingdom. Kampala is dotted with colorful crafts markets – including the popular Crafts Village – that sells vibrant crafts ranging from prints, baskets, paintings, pottery, jewelry & more.

Some Entebbe travel highlights include a list of attractions & activities like the Entebbe Wildlife Educational Centre – home to an array of interesting animals & the Entebbe Botanical Gardens where guests can relax & enjoy an introduction to Uganda’s abundant birdlife.

Visitors can also spend an afternoon fishing on Lake Victoria (a must-visit place in Entebbe) or cruise to nearby Ngamba Island to view orphaned and rehabilitated chimpanzees.

When To Travel The best time to visit Kampala & Entebbe is during its 2 dry seasons: between December & February, & between June & September. During these dryer months, the conditions are particularly good for trekking to see mountain gorillas & chimpanzees.
