This exciting Adventure gets you out of the comfort zone and go to explore Entebbe localities by our well-maintained sport bikes. You don’t have to be a super expert in cycling, all you need is the basic cycling knowledge, balance the bicycle, in perfect health and enjoy the tour.
Adventure Consults’ guide will pick you from the hotel and drive to the starting point. Meet our cycling expert who will show you available bicycles. There are a variety of Bikes which are well maintained and we believe will meet your expectations. Pick one that suites your height and weight. Together with the cycling guide, head out on an agreed route for an exciting moment.
Depending on level of fitness, speed, weather, interest and available time, our Entebbe cycling duration vary. The minimum is 2 to 3 hours and maximum 4 to 5 hours.
The short cycling adventure covers a number of areas which include but not limited to Historical and cultural sites, among others the Freedom or independence Tree, the secretariat building, Entebbe Za’Magula Cultural Center (a place that used to be headquarters for Buganda King’s representative from which Entebbe town derives its name), the Botanical Gardens, Entebbe Golf Club and the historical Old Entebbe Town.
You may opt for a longer route which explores all the above areas, but extends to the fishing village, local Market for a moment to interact with the traders. You will also visit the Uganda Reptile Village for an up-close opportunity with the reptiles. The interesting creatures that live at the reptile villages include Gabon vipers, African Rock pythons, forest cobras and crocodiles.
In both cases (long and short cycling tours), you will end with a visit to the Botanical gardens for a more relaxed ride towards the lakeside. After 2 or more hours on the bike, it will be fun to get off and have a walk, stretch as you enjoy the ever green tropical “garden of paradise”. Your guide will give detailed explanations about primates, plants, trees, shrubs, and lots of Birds that live here.
