Get to Know Entebbe

This pretty lakeshore town is so relaxed it doesn’t feel like a town at all, far less Uganda’s one-time capital

Although they lie only 35 kilometres apart on the northern Lake Victoria hinterland, the twin cities of Kampala and Entebbe (present and former capital of Uganda) couldn’t be more different in character. Kampala is a typical African capital, bustling and chaotic, whereas Entebbe doesn’t feel like a town at all. It’s possibly the only African capital, past or present, with a golf course that’s more expansive than its nominal city centre or where the oldest trees in its botanical gardens dwarf its tallest buildings.

Home to Uganda’s only international airport, Entebbe is a good place to stop over on your way in or out of the country by air. There’s a tranquil atmosphere and the streets are safe to walk. The town is attractive, with old colonial gardens and parks and, of course, Lake Victoria as a backdrop. You can enjoy fresh fish and beers overlooking the lake.
