Transfer from airport to hotel

However, for long distance travel, and for those not willing to deal with slow/unreliable ground transport, arrival by air is recommended.

Arrival by Boat

Entebbe is served by local ferry routes to nearby islands and a few selected ports on the shores of lake Victoria. However, for most travel itineraries, arrival by air is recommended.
