1 day trips or Uganda excursions, these excursions are good for people who are already in Entebbe but have an extra day free to do these kinds of excursions.
Behind the scene at Entebbe Uganda Wildlife Education Center
Behind the scene is one of the excursions around Entebbe that you can do and this will take most part of your day. By behind the scene we mean that you become a care giver for a day here you participate in feeding animals in the morning starting at 7:30 am till 1:30pm. This is very exciting as you get to kiss the giraffes and also be able to feed the cubs as well. This will also give you an opportunity to learn how animals behave in the zoo while feeding and a lot is learnt since the care givers you are working with have a lot of information about these animals. After all this you will enjoy a boat ride on the Lake Victoria to kill off the fatigue and back to the hotel.
Birding Around Entebbe Botanical Gardens
Birding around Entebbe will lead you to some of the most exciting sites in and around Entebbe with great numbers of birds and these will include, the Entebbe botanical gardens, kabaka’s chair, the reptile village, around the UN area and if time allows zika forest. Here you can carry your packed lunch so that you can be able to do birding all day without any disturbances and return to hotel later in the evening.
Birding in Mabamba Swamp
Mabamba swamp is one of the most exciting bird site that we have in Uganda which is also a world ramsar site with rich in water birds and also a drive to and from mabamba is enjoyable as you get to see a lot of forest and many sun birds that keep you turning your head all the way to and from mabamba.
