Welcome to Entebbe!
Your holiday begins as you step outside Entebbe International airport into the warm Ugandan sunshine. Your guide will be there to welcome you and will escort you as you tour Uganda, enriching your experience by sharing their knowledge and love of their country and perhaps adding a few surprises along the way.
If you arrive early, there are lots of nice things to see and do in Entebbe – we recommend you visit the beautiful botanical gardens on the shores of Lake Victoria, just relax by the pool in your lovely hotel.
This itinerary has a full-board meal plan meaning breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided every day, often at your lodge. There will be opportunities to have both local and international cuisine and both vegetarians and vegans can be catered for with advance notice. All meals come with a soft drink or drinking water and additional drinks, including alcohol, can be bought from the lodges and restaurants. You will be given a reusable water bottle which can be topped-up from a big bottle inside the vehicle throughout your holiday. Tea, coffee and some small snacks will also be available in the vehicle during certain activities like game drives.
Accommodation: The Boma Hotel
Your accommodation for the night is set in the quiet environs of Entebbe. This Irish-owned, family-run, boutique hotel is full of personality and is definitely one of our favourite hotels in Entebbe. Although the hotel is conveniently sited in the middle of Entebbe, only 10 mins drive from the airport, this is a quiet, safe location and the well planned, lush tropical gardens are peaceful. The décor boasts lots of personal touches and the attractive rooms are comfortable and thoughtfully furnished.
There is a pool area where you can enjoy a relaxing swim and delicious western food, using locally-sourced ingredients, is served in the restaurant.
