Welcome to the Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre (UWEC) or Uganda Zoo!
First established in 1951 under the British colonial ruling aimed at wildlife conservation and rehabilitation of animals that were orphaned, injured, or saved from poachers.
After indepedence it became a zoo and based on a NewYork Zoologist society recommendations, it was restablished as an educational centre now UWEC in 1994 todate.
The centre also operates as a tourism site one of the biggest attractions in Uganda a home to almost all the tropical animals.
We shall take a gentle safari wildlife walk around the zoo including having an educational purpose as we try to meet every animal especially star attractions like the lion, lioness, chimpanzees, elephants, and giraffes.
At the end of the tour if there is time we will also enjoy views of Lake Victoria

Our group had a fantastic time on this tour, it's the best virtual tour experience we have had. At times it really felt like you were actually there and getting an up close and personal look at the wildlife. It really helps when you have great tour guides like Karol and Geoffrey, you could tell they were both very passionate and excited to share what they do. I will be recommending this tour to all my colleagues.
