On the shores of Lake Victoria within the confines of the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) formerly Entebbe Zoo and one of the exciting Uganda Safari tour sites, the efforts to establish the first ever Uganda Floating restaurant are underway.
According to the Executive Director of UWEC, Mr. James Musinguzi, the first phase of this magical restaurant is anticipated to be complete by September this year and the first floor will be open to hosting the range of clients including those on Safaris in Uganda.
It is noted that builders are making final touches on the interior of this floor. The floating restaurant is a multi-million project whose ground was laid 10 years ago but financial constraints had curtailed its accomplishment. The restaurant features four floors comprising of the main restaurant on the first floor, sixteen (16) rooms on the second floor while the remaining two (2) top floors will be multipurpose marked with a fascinating well designed roof top overlooking the Africa’s largest lake and one of the mighty Uganda tour holiday sites – Lake Victoria.
The extensive sandy beach stretching up to 350m marked with beautiful resting huts complement this unique project while counts of animals, bird species and reptiles at the Zoo combine to make the encounter diverse and worthwhile. The place is noted to have hosted the Uganda’s first dragon boat festival.
The locals and stakeholders in the tourism sector are optimistic about the project’s potential to enhance the recreational experience on Lake Victoria. World travelers returning from various Uganda trips including Uganda gorilla Safaris and tours will find the ideal place to settle for Dinner before connecting to Entebbe International Airport for their return flight.
