Once you are in the city of Entebbe, there are a few modes of transportation. Around town, you will see Boda-Boda's, which are basically motorcycle taxis. This is the easiest way to get around as you can just flag down one of the many that are passing by. However, keep in mind that this is probably not the safest way to get around.

Of course, you can always get around on foot but this is usually only a good idea for getting around certain parts of the city and not relying on it to get you around the city as a whole.
