Spent a few hours here while waiting for a flight and it was a great experience. All of the animals here were at some point injured or sick and are recovering so they can hopefully go back out into the wild so some of them might not look completely strong and healthy. It's a great educational experience because they have guides there that will tell you about the animals and plants and it's located directly on Lake Victoria and is beautiful. Some of the animals, birds and monkeys mostly, have free reign to roam around as they please which can create some great pictures! The Center isn't huge so don't count on spending more than a few hours here.
