I was extremely overjoyed to see this dream come true! The African Birding Expo has become an opening for Africa as a great birding continent with over 2000 bird species. As a host country, Uganda has demonstrated that it is one of the leading and most preferred birding destination in the World with enriching mix experiences of birds, Mountain Gorillas, Chimpanzees, game, cultures and beautiful scenaris. The people of Uganda are arguably the most hospitable in the region. Bird Uganda Safaris as part of the African Birding Expo organizing team, we were proud to host the International visitors in Uganda. We are happy that the event was very successful and we look down the make better the next event scheduled for November 6th to 19th, 2017. We shall continue to provide professional guides and drivers, vehicles and the very good itineraries. Iam also proud to present to you these testimonies from some of the participants of the African Birding Expo here under. For any further inquiries about tours in Uganda, please contact us.

its 3:15 in the morning. I arrived to Africa one day and one night ago at 11 pm…feeling like dog meat after a 27 hour flight schedule. But after a superb day of birding and a few epic bird sightings under my belt, I am chipper as a bird at this early hour.  Let me write a few words before the 5:30 am alarm clock ring. I have come to Uganda at the invitation of the UTB READ MORE
