Small, quirky, out of the way and hard to find, but worth the trip.

If you want a private tour of a few of the coolest reptiles in Uganda, make the effort to visit Uganda Reptile Village in Entebbe.

Cheap entrance, frightening reptiles, nice staff, good fun. We had to take a boda to get there and passed through some remote parts of Entebbe. That was a nice ride.

It was an average experience. You can do the whole thing less than an hour. I thought the cages were small and not well kept.

We found it really hard to find the reptile village as the location on Google Maps is incorrect. Once we arrived there we were greeted by Simon our guide. He took us through the village and showed us all the animals including interesting facts like how old they are, how long they can live for, how poisonous they are, etc.... More

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
