Lake Victoria – Boat Cruises & Excursions

With our Head Office based in Entebbe we offer a variety of water based activities and excursions on Lake Victoria and around Entebbe.

Our Lake Fleet

Either of our speedboats are the perfect craft for lake transfers to Ngamba and other islands, sunset cruises and larger fishing groups. Their fiberglass hulls are light yet strong enough to endure all conditions on the lake while providing a comfortable ride for all passengers and crew.

Our motorised traditional canoes are a great, safe option for smaller groups wishing to economise on cost but not the experience. These are also suitable for sunset cruises, Mabamba excursions and the smaller groups of 2-3 persons on fishing trips.

Our large traditional Lake Victoria motorised canoe is used for large group transfers, Ngamba Island excursions and sunset cruises.

Our boats are new powered by modern, well-maintained, outboard engines and are equipped with lifejackets and rain suits for all passengers on board as well as safety equipment including a first aid kit, tracking devices and mobile phone for communications.  Photographs of our boats can be seen below.

Leisure Cruises

Our fleet of boats can cater for all group sizes and trip types. We can arrange sunset cruises on the equator, specialised trips, trips to Ssese Islands, Cheese & Wine cruises and much more. Read more about our Lake Victoria Leisure Cruises

Fishing Excursions

We offer professionally run day and overnight fishing trips on Lake Victoria. Nile Perch – the largest fresh water game fish in the world, is the most sought after prize. Full Day and Half Day trips are available in addition to multi-day fishing trips. Read more about our Lake Victoria Fishing Excursions

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sancturary

Ngamba Island is part of the Koome group of Islands located on Lake Victoria, 23km south of Entebbe, Uganda. It consists of approximately 100 acres, 98 of which are forested and for use by the chimpanzees. Wild Frontiers provides boat trips to the island twice a day as well as over-night excursions. We can also organise activities on the island such as Chimpanzee Caregiver and Integration Experiences. Read more about Ngamba Island

Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC)

UWEC was formed in 1994 as a trust to revive the neglected Entebbe Zoo and provide leadership in educating Ugandans about the benefits of conserving the country’s biodiversity. UWEC now hosts a number of Uganda’s endemic species and offer a number of “behind the scenes” activities, which can be organised through Wild Frontiers. Read more about UWEC
