We walked to the gardens from our hotel and was surprised when we got there that our entrance fee also provided us with a guide. He was very informative and showed all the medicinal plants and knew every plant in the gardens. There was an abundance of bird life and to my surprise I enjoyed the whole experience a lot... More

The facilities are sub standard and need improvements to cater internationally. The diversity and marking of the botany can be improved as can the whole experience on the day. An upgrade and attention to detail is needed by Management.

It's just a park, yes there are birds and monkeys and grass, but you also have cars driving around, groups leaving dirty picnic areas, music by the lake shore (I would avoid going into the water) and pet dogs frightening the monkeys. At 10’000 for foreigner if your choice is between a Mall and this place, go to the Mall…

While I would not recommend this place for those expecting a large formal botanical garden, I do recommend it for lovers of birdlife and those interested in seeing wild colobus monkeys. The gardens are brimming with amazing birdlife, including casqued and crowned hornbills, olive-breasted sunbirds, and Ross' and great blue turacos, among many others. There is also a small band...

A place to walk round and loose yourself in its peace and quiet. A good place to visit if you are into bird spotting and know what you're looking at.

We went on Sunday early afternoon to explore the botanical gardens. Unfortunately, the management allow different groups (one large Indian group of over 100 people) to play loud music, set up tents, BBQs and shout ridiculously loud through loudspreakers. Also other groups play very loud music over amplified systems. Total waste of time and money to visit on Sundays (other... More

On our last day in Uganda, we had nothing to do but not a lot of money left to spend either. So we visited the Botanical Gardens for 10.000 UGX each. The highlight of our visit to the park is that we saw monkeys from really close by, a lot closer than anywhere else we had been. Apart from the... More

Very nice garden with many species of plants and trees. Great birding too. I did this day tour with a visit to the local market which made for a full day of activities, after a morning visit to the swamp to see the shoebill.
