adventure sample8BIRDING SAFARIS

Much of the birdwatching in Uganda is done with in the National Parks. What makes it a Birding Safari versus a regular Safari is that much more time is spent looking for the birds, obviously.  Also, we often take detours and explore places where you are more likely to find the unique and exotic birds.

In terms of the number of days, however, please refer to our sample trips page under Routes to Safaris to get an idea of how much time you can spend searching for birds.

We can also offer longer trips where are you are truly looking throughout the country to find the most birds that you can.

Because of the vast number of birds species in Uganda, it is often much better to create a custom trip so that you are going to the places that suit you and what you're looking for.
