This is small reptile village bit far from mainroad. I would recommend to get there by boda, as bad road feels less bad on motorbike. Staff here is very dedicated to their job, and it is always refreshing to see that snakes and other reptiles really change from time to time. They catch reptiles from places where they would have...

I went here on my first trip to Africa, it really makes you aware of how many kinds of venomous snakes there are in Africa, and they only have a small percentage withe the 50 or so variety that you will see. The best is the Gabon Vipers that you can't see even when there right in front of you.... More

3 or 4 kms off the Entebbe/Kampala Road, this reptile sanctuary gives you a really close up experience with cobras, chameleons, mambas and tortoises - amongst other delights. The visit is guided by the higly knowledgeable - and fearless - staff. Best of all is the hands-on chameleon enclosure and, after checking with you first, when they bring out a... More

We took our kids to the reptile village today. It was a fun place to learn about reptiles, and get a closer view of them. We saw several different types of snakes, monitor lizards, crocodiles, chameleons, and tortoises (including a 118 yr. old male according to the guide). It was a pleasant outing, but I'd like to see better upkeep... More

Visited the visit with friends. Was able to witness a good number of reptiles. Though the park does not have that sophistication as compared to Western countries but the natural surroundings make give a different feel. It is some distance off from the main Entebbe Kampala road. It's a community institution which I found is maint by a motivated staff.... More

I visited as part of a bike trip around the city - it's a great walk or cycle once you get off the main road. Staff really knowledgeable & good to contribute by purchasing at the crafts shop, given that entrance is free. There is a pedalo and a canoe to try too....

The reptile village is small but worth seeing. Got to see the snakes, including cobras up close was good. Getting to hold a chameleon was the best bit. A boda-boda will take you there as it's just on the outskirts of the city.

I want here only one time, despite many times I traveled to Entebbe. The Zoo is much better, even considering only the snakes.
