Getting Around

The most convenient way to get around Entebbe is by taxi; metered cabs are available from the taxi stand in the Kitoro area, or by telephone. A slightly cheaper option is the ubiquitous boda-bodas (motorcycle taxis). However, accidents are very common with irresponsible drivers, so it's best to get a recommendation for a good driver from a trusted individual.
