Tour Highlight

Although Chimpanzee trekking, gorilla trekking, wildlife tours, and cultural tours are some of the most popular tours in Uganda; birding is gaining ground. Uganda is a birding haven. Much as it is the small nation, the number of bird species found in Uganda can be equated to those found in the whole of Europe. Birds like staying around swampy areas.
