The National Botanical Gardens of Uganda are located in Entebbe, Uganda. They were laid out in 1898 by the first curator A. Whyte close to the shore of Lake Victoria. The gardens are divided into different zones, including a rainforest zone. This rainforest formed the backdrop to scenes from the Tarzan films featuring Johnny Weissmuller, shot in the 1940s.
Notable animals and birds found in the gardens:
- Marabou Stork
- Black-and-white Colobus Monkey
