Flight path from Johannesburg to Entebbe

The Kampala Serena Hotel is the spot to be. Enjoy the swimming pool, waterfalls and walk between the ponds. When not supping at the hotel, try the Khyber Pass Indian restaurant. The Crafts village is within walking distance. Ask for a room on the top floor looking out over the pool - this provides the best view and is quieter (for convenience the room should preferably be near the elevator).

Top review

Becca & Scott enjoyed the view of Lake Victoria as they flew from Johannesburg to Entebbe, before exiting into the hot humid atmosphere outside the plane: "Entebbe is a smallish town...We went on one long walk to town to see their main attraction , a zoo which features rescued chimps."

Road trip

A road trip from Johannesburg to Entebbe isn't recommended, for the simple reason that it's 4080km and will take you over 50 hours of driving! However, if you've got your heart set on it here's a route from Europcar in Johannesburg to Entebbe Airport. You'll pass through Harare (Zimbabwe) and Lusaka (Zambia), Kabwe; cutting in between Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika into Tanzania; past the Tulawaka Gold Mine, round Lake Victoria and you arrive in Entebbe.
