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.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Kampala with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 60 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Kampala. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

This is a wondrous thing- to be able to go all over the world in real time with local folks talking to me! She was great! So glad I found this site. I share with my friends and family. Thank you.

This was a first time out for our very pleasant and friendly guides. I enjoyed seeing the animals, but the person with the camera should always have the sun at their back. Some enclosures were too bright to photograph without shade. Noah's sign language was the highlight of the tour for me. The signs for many of the creatures are not the same as ASL, but were perfect. So much fun! Very nice guides. But midday is not a good to see wild snow, as they are less active. Will definitely take another tour with them!

What a great idea - fascinating to see ISL being used in this visit to Entebbe Zoo. One suggestion as it is a very visual tour try to keep the camera on Noah when he is signing and that will enhance the tour as the connection kept failing. One thing we enjoyed was learning a few signs - maybe a teaching session just face to face.
