Show some love... feed, then swim the equator on lake Victoria in Entebbe
On this excursion, we spend one day on the lake Victoria.
We start the day by visiting the Wild life education center in Entebbe, at the zoo. This is the only zoo in Uganda and we get to see many animals including the Gorilla in an enclosure protected and reduced from the wild.
We will then take a boat to the Ngamba island where our main activity will be to interact and feed the chimpanzees that have been habituated and resettled here for conservation purposes. We will also have lunch here.
In the afternoon, our boat takes us to the equator line where we will see first hand how the forces of the North and South hemisphere battle along this line. The brave and adventurous get to swim in the lake and feel the thrill.
On this trip, we are showing some love to the chimps, learning about wild life and the adrenaline junkies are letting go. What a way to see Entebbe in a day!
Lets go on a safari
Start off from your hotel and head to the Entebbe wild life education center and see the animals at the zoo.
At 11 am, transfer by boat to the Ngamba Island where the chimpanzee sanctuary is located. You will see lots of birds and monitor lizards.
Break fast at the sanctuary , after a tour f the beautiful island.
Feeding the chimpanzees from mid day to 2 pm, then a visit to the chimp clinic. Those interested will take part in the food preps.
In the evening, we embark on our journey back but expecting to make a stopover at the equator to observe how the boat will be pushed by the South and North Pole forces tending to keep in one position. If clearly observed, when the boat crosses the equator, the boat engine will tend to use a little more energy to beat the equator line.
If interested in swimming, this is the right point and you be given some minutes to enjoy the swimming activity and then finally proceed with the journey. You will be awaited by our driver to drop you off to your hotel or Entebbe town.
