Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus) Entebbe, Uganda

more uganda pics

decided against a further night in Kampala on the way back to the UK and headed down to Entebbe on Lake Victoria to have a look around. I managed to visit two of the well-known attractions there.

the first was the excellent Botanical gardens, with its curious vervet monkeys and the second was the Uganda Wildlife Education Center. once Entebbe Zoo, but now redeveloped into a conservation/education facility. it has a mandate to rescue and rehabilitate injured, confiscated and/or orphaned wildlife, as well as featuring only wildlife that occurs in Uganda. this is a really refreshing approach and makes a change from forcing a polar bear to sweat it out or watching a equatorial animal battle with the cold.
