Thirty-five kilometers south of Kampala, Entebbe lies on the shore of Lake Victoria. It served as the administrative capital of Uganda in the 1960s but now is most famous for being the site of Uganda's only international airport.

Market sceneEntebbe provides an attractive introduction to Uganda and has a much more laid back feel than the capital. Usually visitors won't stay long in Entebbe with an overnight stop before an early or after a late flight being the main reasons to stop.

However if you do have a little more time, a visit to the botanical gardens is highly recommended. This offers a great introduction to Uganda's birdlife, as well as glimpses of a couple of monkey species and plenty of tree squirrels, and is a very picturesque and tranquil place to enjoy a stroll and while away a few hours.
