If you arrive earlier in the day and have to wait for the ferry too long, our guide will take you for a tour of the Entebbe botanical gardens or the zoo. While on the ferry, enjoy the beautiful sites of the second largest fresh water lake in the world. The ferry drops everybody at the Lutoboka bay in Bugala Island and by this time, you would already know just how beautiful the island is.
