Protea Hotel in Entebbe overlooks Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, and is only a short drive from Uganda’s capital, Kampala, and an even shorter drive (approximately 1km) to Entebbe International Airport. Despite not holding capital status, Entebbe is considered the gateway to the country’s treasures thanks to its location on the shores of Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, and its proximity to Entebbe International Airport which brings most major tourist traffic into the country.
Excitement and adventure abound throughout Entebbe and many activities centre around the lake, from fishing and sailing to kayaking and boating. Visitors can take a cruise to the Ssese Islands, wander around the Mabamba Swamp, relax in Entebbe’s Botanical Gardens, or visit the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
The 4-star Protea Hotel accommodates guests in its standard twin and deluxe rooms, and their Executive Suites (the latter of which boast Lake Victoria views). A safe, desk, tea/coffee facilities, minibar, satellite TV, internet access, an en-suite bathroom and complimentary breakfast come standard with each option. Other on-site conveniences include a restaurant, swimming pool, fitness centre, forex services, and complimentary airport shuttle.
