Although mountain gorillas and chimpanzees are Uganda's main draws, this safari destination is also well-known for the thousand bird species which call the country home and the easy access to birdlife, making the country one of Africa’s best birdwatching regions.

This tour begins in the town of Entebbe, from which you'll traverse south and west through Uganda’s savannahs, forests, woodlands, swamps, highlands, rivers and lakes. Important habitats to visit along the route include Mabamba Swamp, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale Forest, Lake Mburo, Mabira, Jinja and Bwindi.

Keep your eyes peeled for the vibrant feathers of the green-breasted pitta, the crooked smiles of shoebills and the majestic crests of the gray-crowned cranes, Uganda's national bird. What's more, Lake Mburo is the only place in Africa where you can easily see the aquatic African finfoot.

Yet, Uganda's birds are only half the story. In Kibale's Queen Elizabeth National Park, you'll observe chimpanzees, elephants, lion and buffalo. In Bwindi's Impenetrable Forest, you'll encounter the endangered mountain gorilla, while plains of long-horned cattle can be found in Ankole.

Uganda is the perfect wildlife-watching destination for serious ornithologists and birding enthusiasts. Start designing your dream birding itinerary for Uganda today, with the help of our African travel specialists.
