This was a nice short-cut in walking to the Wildlife reserve, just on the other side. For 10,000 shillings you get in, though there is always someone at the gate offering to "be your guide". I declined and they were polite, though the park is big-enough to almost need someone. I got lost a few times, as there is no... More

The tree are well taking care of, with some having tagged scientific names. A beautiful beech site within the garden with cold drinks and food, at the coast of lake Victoria.

Nice little zoo. All the animals are rescued which is nicer than locked up wild animals. Also involved in the reintroduction of white rhinos

Jane and I find the Entebbe Botanical Garden, pay a small fee, and are greeted by our guide-to-be Alex. He has a warm smile, a powerful physique, and is a bird-nird. Perfect. We love him. He tells us that the original Tarzan movie was filmed here; Jane let's fly her long-famous monkey howl, her 'Cheeta' impersonation. Eee eee eee aaah... More

Great trees, colobus monkeys, birds, lake views - lovely - slightly tricky to find - head down road signed 'zoo' and then turn left - ask a local!

The Entebbe are a really nice park, which is very rare in East Africa, but that is it. I wouldn't really dare to call it a botanical garden. Yes, there is quite a variety of trees, but you can have that in any park. Very few flowers or other bloomy things. At 10000 shillings (foreigner price Jan 2015) this is... More

Try the small cafe by the shore of Lake Victoria. Wonderful waterbirds and a good variety of dragonflies too.

Its an ideal place for a picnic with family and friends. Was there for a short time with guests who were heading to the airport. A stroll in the gardens will get you a sight of the Columbus monkeys and a variety of birds. Definitely a lovely place to be, not forgetting they have great space so large numbers are... More
