Begin your explorations of the historic city of Kampala (best time to go) with a cruise on Lake Victoria, departing from the hotel's bay.

Each has unique attractions that tourists on their safari holiday can enjoy, along with cultural shopping hubs where you can buy souvenirs of your trip.

Lubaga, also known as Rubaga, was the capital of the legendary Buganda kings. Tour this part of Kampala with your private AfricanMecca guide for views of the UNESCO World Heritage Site 1881 Kasubi Tombs and the manmade Kabaka’s Lake. Here you will also find famous landmark reminders of the advent of colonialism in Uganda. Marvel at the Namirembe and Rubaga Cathedrals.

Makerere University in the Kawempe District is another must-visit. For an introduction to Uganda’s incredible wildlife, make your way to the Uganda Wildlife Education Center, Serenada Eco-Tourism Site and the Snake Park on the Kampala-Entebbe Highway. To offer prayers for well-being in the traditional Ugandan way, visit the ancient Nakayima tree, revered since the era of the Bachwezi kings.

Pros & Cons At Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa In Kampala

  3. Gardens and marina offer sightings of indigenous birdlife.
  4. Rooms provide stunning views over the lake.

Things To Note When Staying At Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa

  1. With 124 rooms, the hotel may not be suitable for tourists looking for an intimate vacation with personalized service.
  2. Can be busy and noisy with conference rooms and weddings.
  3. The resort is mid-range deluxe property. It is not a 5 star or ultra-luxury resort geared towards upscale guests. The focus is on touring visitors who want to golf with lakeside experiences or prefer a secluded hotel away from the bustles and traffic of Kampala.
  4. Service quality can vary during busy times (e.g. Christmas, New Year’s).
  5. Located outside the city on the northern edge of Lake Victoria; not ideal or convenient if you want to be immersed in Kampala’s city environs and easy access to various central attractions.
