Our Uganda Highlights tour starts with a visit to the primary forests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for some great forest birding afoot and for those who wish, stand eyein-eye with mountain gorillas. We’ll stay three nights at the park’s highaltitude Ruhija/Ruhiza to explore the famous Mubwindi Swamp and the highly productive rainforest sie of The Neck.

Queen Elizabeth National Park lies just north of Bwindi. We’ll stay two nights, offering us savanna birding and game-watching as we sample the diverse habitats of this big park. Just further north of QENP lies Kibale National Park, with its midaltitude rainforest and savanna.

African Green Broadbill

African Green Broadbill

We’ll stay three nights here to allow 3 mornings to try for the elusive Green-breasted Pitta, which should be displaying at this time of year. Other specials include Black Beeeater. We’ll encounter many butterflies and primates and those who wish, can track chimpanzee – we highly recommend it. As we descend eastwards to Entebbe, we reach the dense Papyrus swamps of Lake Victoria, where we’ll take a boat trip to find the enigmatic Shoebill.

Our Budongo and Murchison Falls tour combines fantastic primary forest birding, savanna game drives and a boat trip on the Nile to Murchison falls. Budongo, and its famous Royal Mile, is one of Central Africa’s richest forests. Murchison, on the banks of the mighty Nile, offers superb savanna birds such as Pennant-winged Nightjar, plus a chance of Pel’s Fishing Owl.

Our Rwanda tour includes four nights in the incomparable Nyungwe National Park for Albertine Rift endemics, primates and amazing scenery. For a preview, please have a look at our latest article on birding in Rwanda.

Note: these three tours can be joined back-to-back, with nights in Kigali or Entebbe included in the tour cost.

Focus

We have designed this tour to have the best chances to see some of the most desired birds of Africa: Redcollared Mountain Babbler (in Rwanda), African Green Broadbill, Green-breasted Pitta, Shoebill, a suite of Albertine Rift endemics and more.

For many of the tricky species, this tour offers multiple opportunities to see them, which maximizes our chances of success. As we avoid the temptation of rushing around for the biggest list, we focus on the birds that are unique or typical to the area.

Being in some of Africa’s best birding area, we will still pay attention to all the available species (within reason) and see a huge diversity. Let us know if you have target birds or want to know more about the species we might encounter.

A species list will be handed out to you as part of your tour booklet and is available beforehand upon request. This is a dedicated birding and wildlife tour with early starts and lots of time in the field.

While we will focus on finding the special birds, we are likely to have some great sightings of mammals, primates, flowers and butterflies, of which Uganda has a mind-boggling diversity.
