The Botanical Gardens
The Gardens are a 15-minute bicycle ride from The Boma. They date from the Colonial era and contain many beautiful trees including palms and medicinal plants. A rainforest-type environment here is locally said to have been used in an old Tarzan movie! Of particular interest are the Colobus monkeys and the wide variety of bird species in the Gardens.
The Wildlife Centre, formally the Zoo, is one of Uganda’s most popular attractions.
