Birding Gear, Tips & Tricks

WIDE-WILD UGANDA SAFARIS
We offer extraordinary safaris in order to identify secretive and hard to see specialties of your choice.

We use special and authentic guides that are not only professional but also add that passion on your trip. During birding watching, more attention is needed while tracing for specialties that are secretive and some that skulk on tree canopies of about 60m high.

Tracing for such species is always guided by kin birders that not only identify them with their eyes but also can use their lips whistles to call for more responsive species Contact Us

Our Safaris /Trips

Uganda is a true pearl of Africa

Ecologically, Uganda is only where the East African savanna meets the West African jungle! Where else in this globe can one observe lions prowling the open plains in the morning and track chimpanzees in the rain forest undergrowth the same afternoon, then the next day navigate tropical channels teeming with hippos and crocodiles before setting off into the misty mountains to stare deep into the eyes of mountain gorillas?!! Certainly Uganda is the only safari destination where range of forest primates is as impressive as its selection of Antelopes. And it’s of particular interest to birdwatchers that over 1,050 species of birds (more than 50% of the total bird species in Africa) have been recorded! Most of these specials are west African and Congolese forest birds that would be very difficult to see elsewhere. This is the reason to why the rainforests of western Uganda must be seen as the country’s most important bird homes and one that is of greatest interest to birders where the most alluring forests in terms of localized species are; Semliki Valley National Park, Budongo Forest Reserve, Kibale Forest and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Most forest birds are secretive some elusive that skulk on tall tree canopies! and it can be difficult to get, even not to have a glimpse on them in the dense undergrowth, BUT looking at them can be simpler with the best local bird enthusiasts most of them capable of identifying all species by call, and even calling up the more responsive species with their lips whistles! Otherwise, wilderness of Uganda is full of a million incredible creatures; from tiny to the tall, from slow to the speed and magnificent sceneries thrilling right away from rugged terrain scenery and arid badlands of Karamoja-Kidepo Valley National Park region in the north to the misty mountainous areas of Kigezi and Kisoro region in the south.
