The UWEC education officer, James Musinguzi, said the centre last had a leopard, which died of old age, eight years ago.
He added that the leopard, which will feed on about 4kg of beef every day, would boost domestic tourism.
A leopard’s life expectancy is 15 years in the wilderness but it can live to 28 years in captivity.
