Profile type uganda wildlife education center does not exist
Set on the shores of Lake Victoria, Uganda Wildlife Education Centre is a must visit for anyone coming to Entebbe for a leisure or educational tour. The centre which sits on 72 acres, boasts of a wide variety of indigenous wildlife numbering well into the thousands, and housed in natural settings which depict three of Uganda's ecosystems: The Wetland, The Savannah and The Forest.
The Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) was opened in 1952 by the Colonial Government then, as an animal orphanage that offered sanctuary to young animals found abandoned in protected areas due to the death or poaching of parent animals.
In the early 1960s, it became a traditional zoo until 1994 when it was renamed the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre.
