Entebbe is located along the shores of Lake Victoria, not far from the capital Kampala. Entebbe will probably be one of the first places in Uganda you will see as the international airport is located here.
Victoria Lake looks huge, almost like a sea, and Ugandans (Lugandans) like it very much. It is favourite place for the locals to spend holidays, short excursions or swimming during the weekends. The water, however, isnt advisable for swimming, especially for whites because of mosquitos and other small creatures spreading diseases to which locals are alomost imune.
