The Gateway to Uganda…the Pearl of Africa!
Situated on a Lake Victoria peninsula Entebbe was originally the seat of government for the Protectorate of Uganda before independence in 1962.
The State House is the official office and residence of the President of Uganda is also located in Entebbe.
The word Entebbe came from the Luganda language ‘e nteb’e which means ‘seat or chair’ therefore known as the seat of power in Uganda.
A few points of historical interest
Entebbe experiences a tropical rainforest climate as the town has no real dry season throughout the year. January is the driest month while April is the wettest although we all know how the weather patterns are changing at a rapid pace. The hottest month recorded is February with the coolest being July.
