Detailed Itinerary

Uganda is about the size of Britain, it has more than 1,200 bird species recorded, making it possibly the richest African birding destination – “a wonderland for birds”. Its location near the East African savannah, the Central African rainforest and the semi-desert of the north gives it a remarkable diversity. Key species include shoebill, martial eagle, black bee-eater, white-tailed lark, white-winged warbler and papyrus gonolek. Over 300 species of birds have been recorded in Bwindi including several Albertine rift endemics – red-throated alethe, Archer’s robin-chat, Kivu ground thrush and montane masked apalis. Uganda bird watching can be very rewarding for tourists given its diversity. Over 180 species of birds have been recorded in Mgahinga, including the Rwenzori touraco and the handsome francolin.
