Is This Trip for Me?
Uganda is Africa’s premier bird watching destination, with over 1000 species of birds and a combination of Albertine Rift endemics, ‘old forest’ birds and papyrus species. This safari is for the avid birder who wants to tick off at least 100 new species. From the not-so-hard-to-find shoebill to the Nkulengu rail, you will be astounded how many new birds species you’ll see. Combine this with chimpanzee and gorilla trekking.
