In Most Bantu Languages the word Entebbe means Chair. When you get a visitor, the first thing you offer is a seat. This explains why Entebbe hosts the International Airport of Uganda. Entebbe was for many years the administrative capital of Uganda, until just after independence in 1962 when the Capital was moved to Kampala. Entebbe has a variety of accommodation options from 5 star hotels to Guest Houses. Click here for Entebbe Hotels and Accommodation.
