Nature Uganda member’s walk

Nature Uganda – the Birdlife International partner in Uganda – regularly organises members’ nature walks and last month we had a chance to visit the Entebbe Reptile Centre.

The Centre is a fairly new project, set up by Ugandan herpatologists to provide education about reptiles, to include them in the many wildlife attractions Uganda has to offer and to rescue those under threat from local people. The Centre is still quite small but leads on to the swamps around the shores of Lake Victoria where you can enjoy a walk and maybe spot a few water birds as well.

The Nature Uganda gang is a friendly, relaxed group of enthusiasts who regularly come together to enjoy a nature walk and learn more about a particular conservation project or activity. Many also bring their children – the future stewards of the environment.
