Gorilla trekking in Uganda with a focus on Ugand’s birding hotspots.

With over a 1000 different species of birds, it is of no surprise that this country is on the wish list of avid birders around the world. Even non-birders can not fail to be impressed by the magnificent Shoebill or some of the beautiful Albertine Rift species which are found in a small area of SW Uganda. It is with this thought and the owner of Wildlife Trails own interest in all wildlife, that we suggest this tour for keen birders. Birding seemed to once only be done in large, frantic groups, with the only aim to tick off as many birds in as quick a time as possible; that’s not the way we or our clients roll! So we are now attracting more and more single clients, couples or a small group of friends who want to enjoy birds at their own relaxed pace. Join us on this Uganda wildlife tour with a focus on its amazing birdlife.
