Popularly known as “Entebbe Zoo", Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) is located in Entebbe along Lugard Avenue. It was opened in 1952, by the Colonial Government in Uganda, as a reception centre for wild animals that were found as casualties. UWEC believes that attitude- and behavioral change through creating awareness is a more sustainable approach to species survival. This tour will be guided by Noah in International Signs language and Rosemary in English.
At Infinity Ideas Network, we envision to create and make available equal job opportunities for Deaf and Disabled young people for their sustainable social and economic standards of living. WHY DEAF? In Uganda, they are among the most stigmatized people who often live in isolation and are excluded with from their communities, from the education system, healthcare and other vital services. Most times they are hidden away by their families as they consider this as a bad omen. If you would like to contact us then please feel free to send an email to email@example.com.

Loved seeing the beach at the beginning! It was good to see the male guides using sign language which can invariably make such tours available to a wide audience. A great effort was made by Rosemary and staff to get close to the animals, which wasn't easy at times! Nevertheless we did manage to see some African parrots and lions as well as other species. thank you, a great experience.

Love their tours and I am very impressed by their initiative to help the deaf people find employment and have a fulfilling life. This is a great avenue for us to support them.
