Plan your overnight experience in our family cottages

Enjoy your overnight experience in our beautiful self contained cottages and grab a rare opportunity to get up close with some of UWEC's friendliest animals with your family!

The Centre's location on the edge of Lake Victoria, its rich vegetation and its surprisingly wide range of birds, butterflies and other indigenous animals make it an attractive venue for education as well as a pleasing one for those who visit, whether Ugandans or people from overseas.

UWEC boasts of a wide variety of wildlife species in the Mammal, Reptile, Bird and Primate sections. Most of the animals that come to UWEC have been rescued from smugglers, poachers or the community.

Bring your class or pupils along for a visit at UWEC Zoo and join us on the learning journey which helps you discover the unique aspects of animals under our care! Come close to them, explore, enjoy and learn how you can help save mother earth today.
