Entebbe – Lake Victoria Sunset Cruise
Touch down in Entebbe, and you start to explore. Crumbling colonial houses paint a portrait of East Africa in the early part of the 20th century, their facades scattered with the ochre-hued dust of Uganda. The guide arranges closed-door access to some of the buildings, giving a very personal perspective on a city that looks and feels like it is in the past. After the relaxed walking tour, you journey to Lake Victoria, where a private sunset cruise is a good way to see a part of Africa while recovering from the flight. As with most parts of this itinerary, today involves private transfers and private guiding throughout, along with the opportunity to tailor the rhythm to your energy levels. Your accommodation is on the shores of Lake Victoria, with dinner at the hotel’s restaurant included.
