There are many things to see and do in Entebbe. The National Botanical Gardens of Uganda has been located here since 1898. It’s rainforest section even formed the backdrop for Johnny Weissmuller’s Tarzan. The Uganda Wildlife Education Center, commonly known as the Entebbe Zoo opened in 1952 to house sick, injured, orphaned, and illegally traded animals. Now it’s both a traditional zoo and conservation and education center. The State House, the official residence of the President of Uganda is here too. Plus, it serves as a great jumping off place for exploring the rest of Uganda, especially Lake Victoria, the world’s largest tropical lake and home to the Nile crocodile as well as hippopotamus, African clawless otter, spotted-necked otter, marsh mongoose, sitatunga, bohor reedbuck, defassa waterbuck, cane rats, and giant otter shrew.
The hotel’s restaurant dishes up a range of local and international cuisines paired with an international wine list. For added relaxation, guests can unwind with a pampering spa treatment or burn off some of those delicious meals in the hotel’s gym. However, the best place to be might just be poolside with a drink after a refreshing afternoon swim.
