I stayed at Uganda Wildlife Education Centre in Entebbe town Uganda for 2 nights while backpacking around East Africa. I stayed in the dorm (which is huge) so I got a room all to myself. There was only one other person staying there.
The staff gave me my key but didn't give me any more information than that.
I eventually found the bathrooms and the one computer they have for guests to use the internet. They have a lakeside 'restaurant' which closes at 6 PM.
Thankfully the other girl told me the closing time at 5:45 PM, so I was able to rush down and order some food.
Their menu is quite limited - mostly you can order chips and then some sort of meat side.
For vegetarians there isn't really anything you can eat besides chips. Breakfast in the morning though was really good.
On one hand I really liked my stay there - it was quiet, clean, peaceful and the animals were interesting to wander through.
On the other hand, amenities are very limited.
I guess it was nice to know that my $10 dollars a night was going towards the animal rescue work and not frills for guests.
If you want to get up close to animals, this is the place to do it! If you aren't looking for luxury and don't mind basic accommodation, this is a wonderful option!
The bandas are situated within the education centre itself - somewhat like a zoo, but all the animals are orphans or those unable to fend for themselves in the wild - and the price of the accommodation (approx £15-20 per night) included unlimited access to the park even when it was closed.
Being able to spend a quiet hour wandering around the anclosures was
The bandas themselves are very spacious and well-constructed. They are also equipped with a private bathroom and fridge, plus you can hire basic cooking equipment.
The centre is also a good base for visiting the chimp sanctuary on Ngamba Island; boats leave from the jetty
