Setting up
We have done a few flights but we still had time to explore more of Entebbe.

I went sailing with Alec on Vic Lake and we saw a Spotted Neck Otter passing by us in the water. On the doc locals brought their goats to take them to an island where they farm.

Another day Jaco and I went exploring and we found a kind of a harbor. Later we went to Aero Beach where we descovered one of the Boeing 707's that was used in the Raid on Entebbe - to rescue the Air France passengers that was hijacked by terrorists in 1976 and was given permission to land at Entebbe by Idi Amin.
From the road leading to Aero Beach I managed to get a photo of the UN aircrafts and ours too...indicated by the yellow arrow.

The last set of photos is when we went to the zoo - walking distance from the hotel.
