Top birding spots in Uganda

Uganda is a birding paradise, boasting of a huge bird list that has about 1073 recorded bird species making up 50% of Africa’s bird species and 11% of the world species. Such a huge bird list is contained within a small territory of only 90041 square miles (about the size of Britain), hence having one of the highest concentration of birds per square kilometers in Africa. Birding in Uganda rewards with easy spotting of many birds by covering just a small area or birding for a short period of time. The incredible diversity of habitats that no other area in Africa can match is the reason Uganda harbors such a huge diversity of birds, and collects so many migrant birds during the year. Uganda lies in a unique position where she shares Africa’s major ecological zones (apart from the sea) and each has associated bird species, including many that are range restricted.
