I was told it was a must, especially because of Tarzan fame. I didn't have much time (or money left), so I opted for a quiet walk in the park, therefore no guide. The guidebook warned that one might be accosted by young men chatting...More

The Botanic Gardens are a nice place to have a picknick or just walk around and enjoy nature and let the kids run. Beautiful environment, lots of monkeys, fresh air. Unlike the zoo, it's not expensive and not touristy. We quite enjoyed that.

This is a large, fairly wild and unkempt garden, which is great for wandering around. It is right on Lake Victoria so you can see the wetland birds. There are monkeys and eagles in the trees and such a nice spot to see a large...More

First went on a Tuesday, amazing. Felt like this must be the location of Garden of Eden. Returned on a Sunday, too crowded .Felt like Eve must have eaten the apple while i was away.

Entebbe Botanical Gardens turned out to be a delightful surprise. I went there on my last day in Uganda with a few hours to spare before my flight. Absolutely lovely. Take a guide (available at the entrance) so you don't miss out on bits of...More

Response from HenkKoppelaar | Reviewed this property |
Yeah sure you can. Mind you however that it is an open garden, so the birds are not kept in a cage. It is just in the wild, meaning you must be lucky to find the African Grey parrot, but if they are there, you easily can... More
