Entebbe Botanical Garden – Der botanische Garten von Entebbe

e/d 15 pictures

Besides the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre, Entebbe Botanical Garden is another fine place worth a visit on your first or last day in Uganda. Established in 1902, the botanical garden is a wonderful retreat and home to indigenous forest as well as cultivation, horticulture and even a broad variety of animals, including several bird species, monkeys and tree squirrels. Entebbe Botanical Garden is located right at the shore of Lake Victoria and big enough to keep you busy for some hours. It is said that the early Tarzan movies with Johnny Weissmuller have been shot amidst it´s impressive vegetation. Weiterlesen

Toro Crater Lakes – Die Toro Kraterseen

e/d 32 pictures

Starting north of Fort Portal, a concentration of crater lakes runs down south alongside the western border of Kibale National Park with its groups of habituated chimpanzees. The crater lakes south of Fort Portal sprawl over a large region with a lush, hilly countryside and a patchwork of cultivated areas and remnants of swamps as well as indigenous forest with a profusion of birds, monkeys and butterflies. One of the most beautiful is Lake Nkuruba, where the community-run Original Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve is protecting the surrounding rainforest which is bursting with black-and-white colobus, red colobus, red-tailed and other monkeys. The lakes tend to be quite deep, and the water is clear and cool (but not too cool)– perfect for a relaxing swim. Weiterlesen
