Cheap entrance, frightening reptiles, nice staff, good fun. We had to take a boda to get there and passed through some remote parts of Entebbe. That was a nice ride.

Hi. From Kampala by public taxi (matatu) would cost Ushs5,000 (check the rate online) and by Hired Cab it would cost about Ushs80,000 (give or take 20,000). It's better, for a trip of this nature, to hire a car for the day... More
