We often call here for a late evening stroll to find some local birds. There is an entrance fee at the gate but the fence is decidedly porous and many inside have not paid the modest charge. Resist the suggested charge for a camera as they don't charge for mobile phones which are camera equipped. Several shaded routes to take... More

As you enter the garden there is a sign post indicating the entrance fees. Foreigners are to pay UGX10,000each. This is a reasonable price. A "guide" latched onto us, even though we didn't ask. Don't get me wrong, he was informative, took us to the interesting spots and it was a great couple of hours. At the end, he explained... More

There are beautiful large old trees in plenty of space so that they can grow to their full potential. Many have labels with their botanical names. The bird life is rich and you can watch them without being disturbed. There are even monkeys to watch. You can walk down to the shore of Lake Victoria. This is a peaceful oasis... More

Originally installed by the British, there are many old and unusual trees along with a good variety of monkeys and birds. Entry is about $10 but they keep the park up nicely so it is worth it. The volunteer guides work for tips only and are quite well informed about all the flora and fauna. Recommend taking one on to... More

The true beauty of Uganda even inside the city. Very well kept and friendly staff. I've been there about 20 times this month as I use the trails for my daily run. A true challenge with all the hills and trails but a great workout in a great safe environment. Enjoy nature and one of the guides will tell you... More

It is a botanical garden showing flora from different zones of Uganda. Really old and large trees which did not survive at many places, unfortunately. Also a small rainforet. Nice restauant/bar at the beach. Worth visiting

Beautiful Gardens existing for over 50 years. Well maintained but still needs much public support. Our Volunteer Guide was a young very enthusiastic man with a passion for this garden. Wonderful day spent.

I've visited twice, once with a colleague and once with my wife. It's of moderate size and centrally located in Entebbe. At the entrance, you can pay a guide to accompany you and it's worth the money. (10 000 - 15 000 USH) Entrance itself is 10 000 USH and about 4 000 USH for permit to take photos, so... More

Very surprised to see so many vervet monkeys, plus Black & White Colobus and a red-tailed monkey. Saw none last year.
