Although I'm not too much in favor of zoos I understand that in these countries they do a necessary job of taking care of injured animals. So, enjoy the visit, Fee-entrance:15$

Making an animal sanctuary at the Entebbe zone, complete with dedicated attendants and ease of movements is a great initiative being undertaken by Ministry of Tourism. My son was blown away by the sight of the animals he only saw on NatGeo. Well done UWEC.

It’s a bit more expensive, but after doing it, I know any other visit to any other zoo will probably be a bit of a let down. Close encounters with lion, cheetah, leopard, croc, buffalo. Hands on feeding with giraffe, elephant, white rhino, shoebill. Also...More

This was the last event on our 10 day trip in Uganda and what an event it was. Our group took a behind the scenes tour where we could touch a rhino, feed a giraffe and an elephant, and bow to a shoebill Stork. They...More

This is a zoo. Very bad management! Animals are kept very bad. VIP tour, behind the scenes a drama. A chimpanzee lady 50 years old and isolated for 13 years, the animal just vegitates. A young elephant bull lonely, allegedly an orphan, but not brought...More

The zookeepers were Nice. But the animals living spaces were way to small, especially one of the cat-animals was walking around in its super small «cage» and making noises and seemed very stressed and alone. I just couldn’t stop thinking about how much better their...More
