Uganda Wildlife and Birding Safari

This Uganda birding Safari tour will take you to Murchison Falls National Park from the Swamps of Mabamba, where you may search for shoebills. From here, you will go to the west to Kibale National Park, the home of our distant relatives, the chimpanzee, and then south to Queen Elizabeth National Park, the habitat of the tree-climbing lions. The low savannah plains of Lake Mburo National Park, where rare species like the Tabora Cisticola and the Red-faced Barbet can be seen, will serve as the setting for the conclusion after entering the impenetrable forest of Bwindi, which is home to the Mountain Gorilla and the Albertine Rift Endemics.

FAQs for the Uganda Birding and Wildlife Safari

What are the ideal months to visit Uganda for a birding safari?

Your interests will determine the ideal times of year to go birding in Uganda.

Typically, the dry season (June to August and December to February) is a wonderful time to go bird watching in Uganda since the air is cleaner and the birds are more active. Due to an inflow of migrating birds, the rainy season (March to May and September to November) may also offer productive birding.

If you are interested in seeing certain bird species in Uganda, please contact Bird Uganda Safaris for a customised itinerary. We have been organizing tours in Uganda and other countries in East Africa for more than 20 years.

What is the appropriate clothing recommended for a birding trip to Uganda

Uganda is on the equator and experiences sunny conditions most of the year therefore wearing layers and comfy, move-friendly clothes is often advised. Light, breathable textiles like cotton and linen are excellent alternatives for staying cool in the heat.

It is also a good idea to carry sun-protective gear, such as long-sleeved shirts, slacks, and a wide-brimmed hat. Sunglasses and sunscreen are also highly recommended.

You may also want to pack rain gear and warm clothes, depending on the time of year and the region you will be visiting. Heavy rainfall is usual during the rainy season, however, in the tropical forests of Kibale and Budongo and the montane forests of Bwindi, it could rain any time of the year. The temperature may be chilly at higher altitudes, even at lower altitudes.
