Entebbe is a coastal East African city surrounded by the grandiose Lake Victoria. With a population of about 100,000 people, Entebbe sits on the northern shores of Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake. It lies at 0.0500N, 32.4600E (Latitude: 003’000”; Longitude: 320 27’36.00”). The city is situated within Wakiso District, approximately 38 kilometres southwest of Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city. Entebbe has a fast growing hospitality industry; and it has over the years consciously made giant strides to put its name on the global tourism map. On a daily basis, Entebbe plays host to a growing number of tourists from all over the world and its large number of resorts, hotels, entertainment centres and tourist attractions has made it a perfect rendezvous for relaxation all year round. In the local Luganda language, the word “Entebbe” means a “seat”. And the town was probably so named because it was the place where a Buganda chief sat to adjudicate legal cases. Entebbe first became a colonial administrative and commercial centre in 1893 when Sir Gerald Portal, a colonial Commissioner, used it as a base. Entebbe is perhaps best known to Europeans as the home of the Entebbe International Airport, the only international airport of Uganda. It was opened in 1929. Motorcycles, taxi buses and car rentals are the common means of transportation within the city. A UN base has just been opened in the city so safety is guaranteed, round the clock.
