Welcome to Uganda

2 April 2017

After 2 long flights we arrived safe and sound at Entebbe Airport, albeit a little haggered. It took us 45min to get through the Visa line which surprised me. They have a new online approval process which is done before you travel to Uganda but it seems they only have 3 kiosks at the airport with the right equipment to process the online Visas. I hope this is just temporary while they ramp up the program

The driver from the hotel was waiting to transport us to our cute little hotel called the Entebbe Airport Guest House.  I’ve stayed there many times and I love it! The people are so nice and the rooms are clean with nice hot water showers. We couldn’t see the yard at night but this morning the students saw the grounds which are like a little oasis with many beautiful plants. We had a full breakfast this morning with omelettes, toast, fruit plate with banana, papaya and watermelon with coffee and passion fruit juice- delicious!  

Our tour guide and my friend, Arthur, from Econesttim Tours and Safari Uganda was here to pick us up and we have now started on our way to Mbarara. Actually, we made a quick stop at the forex to change money and purchase water and now we are on the road. We should arrive sometime in late afternoon
