Uganda Birding Trip Reports in PDFs: The Bird Checklist Book

Uganda is a small but we’ll gifted country when it comes to its birdlife, with a checklist of 1087 bird species the country boasts 10% of the world’s population species, 50% of Africa’s Species, and 70% of East Africa’s Species, With one true endemic species (Fox’s Weaver) the country has 25 of the 26 Albertine Rift Endemic Species like the Rwenzori Turaco, Rwenzori Nightjar, Strange Weaver, Handsome Francolin, Yellow-eyed Flycatcher, Rwenzori Batis among other species.

Birds of Uganda

The same country still boasts 27 different Congo special species that overlap to Semuliki from Ituri Forest like the Maxwell’s Weaver, Crested Malimbe, Grants Bluebill, and Pale-fronted Nigrita, while on a bird-watching trip you expect to see different habitats and that means you can see Savannah, Higher Altitude, Forest, Woodland and swamp species, the country remains one of the few countries where you can see 5 different bird species per square Kilometer.

Lastly, depending on the migratory time, the country remains a bird migratory route and destination for parallactic migrants. So there is a reason for you to visit the country for a true birding memory.

Wonderful birding trip to southwest Uganda

Iain N wrote a review Aug 2022

I recently went on a wonderful birding trip to the south west part of Uganda with Kabira Travel.
I was met at Entebbe Airport by Herman, my guide and Sharon, the manager.
Herman and I travelled from Entebbe to Mabamba swamp, Lake Mburu, Mgahinga, then three locations in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest before returning to Entebbe via Mpinga Forest.
The birding was incredible with over 270 species seen including several of the Albertine Rift Endemics and many lifers.
I was so privileged to have Herman as a guide. I was constantly amazed at his skill at identifying forest birds from their calls, and was in awe at his knowledge of all the birds at all the habitats we visited. Not only is he an excellent guide, he was also wonderful company for our 9 days on the road.
The tour was expertly arranged by Sharon in head office who came to meet me in Entebbe and also very kindly came to Entebbe to see me off.
I would strongly recommend Kabira Travel and in particular Herman for a birding or wildlife trip to. READ MORE

“Majestic Shoebill” – Amazing Birding in Mabamba Swamp and Entebbe, Uganda

10 day birding tour, exceeded expectations

Mostafa Shafey wrote a review Feb 2022

Kabira safaris is an outstanding operator. Starting from initial communication about itinerary, pricing, to being flexible with dates, to providing a customized experience that fit my needs and communicating all the necessary information. My assigned guide Arshley Brian was an extremely knowledgeable birder and keen naturalist and a very welcoming person, happy to share his knowledge, and I learned quite a bit from his knowledge of birds, mammals, plants, the landscape and Ugandan culture. The variety and number of species we encountered on my relatively short trip was at least double what I had expected because of his knowledge and excellent eye. On my Ugand birding trip Kabira and my guide were extremely accommodating of my requests and interests, and when I go back to the region I’ll be sure to go through them again. READ MORE
