For avian tourists, Uganda is one of the best birding Safari Destination in Africa with about 1062 species recorded. Former British Governor of Uganda Protectorate, and keen ornithologists, described Uganda as a & hidden Eden….and a wonderland for birds”. At least a 3 week stay for any birder can reveal more than 1000 bird species. No other country in Africa can match Uganda’s amazing diversity of habitats and this richness is manifested in ever-burgeoning birdlist of over 1062 species. Some of these birds include the shoebill and numerous spectacular endemics of the Albertine Rift valley, that are hard to find elsewhere. Uganda with its small geographical size (approximately 235,000 sq km) comparatively the size of Great Britain, is arguably the richest African birding destination.
