Google maps now available for Kampala and Entebbe


Intending visitors to Uganda can now access detailed maps of Kampala and Entebbe via Google Maps through their web browser, giving them detailed locations of hotels, restaurants, airlines offices, and other related points of interest.

Locally available is the bi-monthly printed map inside “The Eye,” Uganda’s premier entertainment, location, and travel guide, which can be found for free through hotel concierge desks and a number of other outlets. The publication of the Google Maps, however, will be another step into the e-age for Uganda, permitting the country to use added tools for global promotional activities and giving prospective visitors greater insight about what to expect when coming to “the Pearl of Africa.”
