We took our kids to the reptile village today. It was a fun place to learn about reptiles, and get a closer view of them. We saw several different types of snakes, monitor lizards, crocodiles, chameleons, and tortoises (including a 118 yr. old male according to the guide). It was a pleasant outing, but I'd like to see better upkeep... More

Visited the visit with friends. Was able to witness a good number of reptiles. Though the park does not have that sophistication as compared to Western countries but the natural surroundings make give a different feel. It is some distance off from the main Entebbe Kampala road. It's a community institution which I found is maint by a motivated staff.... More

I visited as part of a bike trip around the city - it's a great walk or cycle once you get off the main road. Staff really knowledgeable & good to contribute by purchasing at the crafts shop, given that entrance is free. There is a pedalo and a canoe to try too....

The reptile village is small but worth seeing. Got to see the snakes, including cobras up close was good. Getting to hold a chameleon was the best bit. A boda-boda will take you there as it's just on the outskirts of the city.

I want here only one time, despite many times I traveled to Entebbe. The Zoo is much better, even considering only the snakes.

It is a good place for a family outing. You can handle the turtles and the cameleons. The boat is fun for the kids. Snakes...well there is a good variety and you are safe. : < )

I wonder how these guys do it! They have every snake specie i couldn't imagine existed. At first i thought it was a joke when my wife suggested that we should have a tour to a snake park in Uganda. I didnt know that snakes are also kept in a park. But the tour was thrilling. I always feared snakes... More

I visited the village by myself, and enjoyed learning about the reptiles from my guide. It seems like a great effort of protecting reptiles in the area, and informing locals about them as well. It was a little far from town, but pretty quick by boda.

The serpents are considered to be the most of the cunning creatures but their sight at The Reptile village gives admiration of the creator and his designing skills
