  • It is a great place to see many different animals in one place. Safe area where you can take pictures and read general information on each animal that you see.

  • It was more than just a visit. My friends and I decided we should have a short safari retreat after many months of not traveling. We were missing the fun. Our behind the scene experience was conducted by a joyful woman by names of Rachel. She was such a darling when it came to sharing amazing stories about wildlife and how to handle the animals at the zoo. Thank you very much Rachel. My highlight was feeding the giraffes, touching the rhino and being in a close contact with the king of the jungle. Can't believe how scaring it is. Will indeed come back for behind the scene experience.
  • Very nice place to visit if you love animals and wild life. There is also a boat trip you can do along Lake Victoria. Definitely visit when you are in Kampala or Entebbe. Go a bit early, around 10 or 11 am before the crowds of people arrive in the afternoon. It will be more enjoyable. The entrance fee for non-African citizens is 15 USD.
