TUganda is known as a great place for bird-watching, so the best time to plan a one-day bird-watching tour is during the months of December through February. During these months, the weather is mild and the migratory birds from Europe and Asia are plentiful. Bird watchers can also take advantage of Uganda’s diverse habitats and spot many of the country’s endemic species as well. The months of March and April are also good times to visit as the rains subside and the dry season begins.

The Mabamba swamp is a wetland located on the edges of Lake Victoria in western Uganda. It is a popular destination for birdwatchers, as it is home to one of the most iconic African birds, the Shoebill. To get to Mabamba from Kampala or Entebbe, you can drive or take a boat from Entebbe. The drive takes about an hour, but to reduce traffic time and beat the sun’s heat, it’s best to leave early in the morning. You can also opt for a speedboat journey from Entebbe to the swamp, then switch to a canoe to reach a possible Shoebill location. Regardless of your route, the Mabamba swamp offers an excellent opportunity for birdwatching and catching a glimpse of the rare and majestic Shoebill.

The tour of the Entebbe Botanical Gardens is an exciting opportunity to explore the many species of birds in the area. From the larger birds like pelicans, storks, and flamingos to the smaller birds like sunbirds, waxbills, and bee-eaters, there are so many birds to be seen! The tour guide will be able to give you tips on how to identify the different birds, as well as teach you about the unique environment of the botanical gardens. The tour will also give you the chance to take photographs of the birds, so don’t forget to bring your camera!

Mabira forest is the perfect destination for bird watchers looking to experience the beauty of Uganda’s diverse bird population. With over 300 species of birds, the forest is a paradise for any bird-watching enthusiast. From the rare shoebill stork to the colourful wattled starling, the Mabira forest is the ideal place to observe Uganda’s avian life.
