At least 250 tourists from Israel have jetted into Uganda for a four-day visit, a move officials say will boost the tourism sector in the country.

 

The tourists were invited by President Yoweri Museveni.

Upon arrival at Entebbe, the excited visitors, who flew in Wednesday at 2pm local time, toured the control tower at the Old Airport, a monumental building whose significance dates back to 1976, when Israel commandos raided the airport to rescue hostages that were hijacked by Palestine terrorists.

 

The team visited the Source of the Nile in Jinja district and Murchison Falls Game Park in Pakwach district.

It was the first time for Israel's national carrier, Israel Airlines, to land in Uganda since 1976.

Yali Yativ, who headed the delegation, told New Vision that their plans for the Israel Airlines is to at least make over six direct flights to Entebbe to boost tourism and cement the good relations between Uganda and Israel.
 

 

The government's target is to at least have four million tourists visiting Uganda by 2020.
 

 

In July 2016, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Uganda and held bilateral talks with Museveni on a wide range of issues.
