Half Day Mabamba Shoebill Tour

About Half Day Mabamba Shoebill Tour

“Entebbe” is loosely translated as seat used to be the place where Buganda kingdom chiefs executed legal cases. Entebbe was also a British colonial administrative and commercial centre in 1893. It is home to the only international airport of Uganda which was established in 1929.

With this private guided tour, you will sail and visit Mabamba Swamp in Lake Victoria only to sight the elusive shoebill stork as well as other birds, endemic to this swamp at your own pace. Sail back to the mainland and visit the reptile village together with the National Botanical Gardens.

The tour is good with social distancing and observes all COVID-19 Safety regulations
