- Entebbe’s Zoo– If you are not having any safari planned, this might be your opportunity to catch a glimpse of Africa’s wildlife. The zoo (formally known as Uganda Wildlife Educational Center) has a medium-sized collection of wildlife saved from captivity, including lions, rhinos, zebras, crocs, giraffes, hyenas, chimpanzee and others. All animals are held in large, natural-like areas that give a nice semi-authentic feeling. Admission for the foreign adult is 30k Shillings (about $12) and you end up with 1.5-2 hours of good-old fun. TIP: The zoo opens daily at 9 am and it is advised to come early before the animals go hiding in the shade from the midday’s sun.
- The Botanical Gardens– while not spectacular, the gardens are of interest to botanists and bird-watchers. They host stands of large trees in a park like setting, an alleged filming site of a “Tarzan” movie, a troop of colobus and vervet monkeys, and various birds. As of 2005, the unofficial guides at the gardens were unusually aggressive for Uganda, and if you engage their services you should agree on a reasonable price beforehand.
