Uganda is a birder’s paradise. Over half of all bird species in Africa can be found in Uganda making it the richest African birding destination. Even within the surroundings of the capital city Kampala, you can record nearly 300 species in a day, and all this is thanks to the richly diverse of habitats from the scenic shores of Lake Victoria to the lush forests of the Albertine Rift and the banks of the mighty Nile River.
One of the best times for birding is early morning when the birds are feeding. As the day gets warmer, the birds tend to relax in the shade while butterflies become more active, which allows a natural shift of attention to another set of beautiful flying creatures.
