BIRDING UGANDA: There can be few birding safari destinations on Earth where one can expect to find over 600 bird species in one park alone – Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park is one. Uganda is arguably the best birding destination in Africa. With over 1040 bird species already recorded in the country, Uganda is the best place to go birding in Africa

Uganda is not new to birders. Several tourists have visited the country on different birding trips and visited different bird watching destinations that include forests, wetlands, savannah grasslands etc. Accolades for Uganda’s birding delights are rarely understated. Nigel Wheatley, for instance, in Where to Watch Birds in Africa (1995) said: “In terms of its size, Uganda is the richest country for birds in Africa.” And this immense volume and diversity occurs miraculously in a space which keen birders can cover in a relatively short visit.
