Things To Do (Activities & Tour Attractions) & Why Visit Protea Hotel Entebbe By Marriott In Entebbe?

Key Takeaways

  • Aqua activities on the lake such as kayaking, boat cruises, and bird watching around the water
  • Fishing on the lake combined with sunset cruises
  • Golfing at the lakeside Entebbe Golf Club
  • Tour of the Entebbe Botanical Gardens which is known for its immense varieties of avian life
  • Exploring the Ssese Islands recognized by the Lonely Planet as one of the “10 best hidden islands” on earth
The hotel’s excellent proximity to the lake allows guests to enjoy the many water-oriented activities available to tourists in Entebbe (best time to travel). For instance, you could go kayaking, take a boat cruise, or rent a bike to cycle near the lake while keeping an eye out for the beautiful avian life. Go fishing on the lake and then end your fun-filled day by enjoying a breathtaking African sunset. If you enjoy golfing, consider visiting the Entebbe Golf Club, which is close by. Before you travel to the parks and reserves of Uganda, get an overview of the country’s incredible flora and unique fauna by visiting the Uganda Wildlife Education Center. At this conservation center, which is on the banks of the lake, you can meet the rescued, orphaned, and injured animals that call it home. Residents include De Brazza monkeys, vervet monkeys, baby rhinos and infant elephants, Ugandan kobs, and chimpanzees, giraffes, among others.

As the expert guide assigned to you by AfricanMecca Safaris will explain, a trip to Entebbe Botanical Gardens is a must-do while in the city. The park is a birdwatcher’s haven and you can spend hours taking pictures of the giant and pied kingfishers, terns, black-headed gonolek, and squacco heron present here. Or better yet, head out to Mabamba Swamp to spot the unique shoebill stork. Another addition to your itinerary is a tour of the Ssese Islands, a spectacular archipelago located in Lake Victoria, listed as one of the “Top 10 Best Hidden Islands In The World.” You will definitely enjoy lounging on the gorgeous beaches, reading a good book, or just soaking in the warm rays of sunshine. Visit the small settlements for a taste of traditional Ugandan living. Later, you could visit Uganda Reptile Village, located on the highway between Kampala and Entebbe.

When staying at Protea Hotel Entebbe By Marriott in Uganda, we recommend combining it with Bwindi Park for your gorilla safari trek, Queen Elizabeth, Murchison Falls and Kibale (chimpanzee safari) alongside your city tour visits of Kampala.

You may optionally extend out to other wilderness areas such as Mgahinga to track down golden monkeys and gorillas in the same park, Jinja for whitewater rafting on the Nile River, Semliki, Lake Mburo or Kidepo for an offbeat wildlife tour.

You can end your vacation on the beach by extending out to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar or Lamu, or even Mombasa.
