The Lake Victoria Hotel is the only hotel near Entebbe airport, the entry into Uganda. Entebbe is 60-90 minutes from the capital, Kampala, depending upon traffic. This is a modest, tourist-class hotel with 100 air-conditioned rooms, a large but simple dining room, a bar, a large swimming pool and extensive gardens. The hotel was rebuilt from a luxury colonial hotel that was destroyed during earlier years of political turbulence in Uganda, and has some beautifully mature gardens.
