African Green broadbill

Uganda is one of Africa’s top birding destinations, with more than 1000 species found at this meeting point of the East African savanna and West African rainforest.

There are only four safari destinations in the world that have more than 600 species of birds, and Queen Elizabeth National Park is one of them: it should be at the top of any birder’s itinerary. Other parks and reserves also boast an impressive number of species, such as Murchison Falls National Park with 450 species, and more than 300 in Budongo Forest Reserve, Kibale National Park, Lake Mburo National Park and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The shoebill stork is one of Africa’s top five birds, and is incredibly hard to find in other countries but Uganda offers the best chance of spotting this rare avian creature in the Mabamba Swamp wetlands near Kampala, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Lake Mburo National Park, the swamps of Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and in the remote Semuliki National Park.
