"In terms of a gratifying birding experience among evergreen Afro-tropical forests, Bwindi to me will always be unbeatable. Sought-after species I enjoyed observing there included Bar-tailed trogon, Black-billed turacou, Kivu ground-thrush; Red-throated alethe, Chapin's flycatcher and Strange weaver. With a checklist of 320 species, of which 23 are Albertine Rift Endemics, twitchers are in for a real treat here."

Lake Mburo Holidays

In the south of the country, approximately 5 hours by good road from Entebbe, Lake Mburo National Park lies in extensive, dry acacia woodland.

Other habitats contained in the park are lakes, papyrus swamps and grasslands. Mburo is an ideal place in which to break the long overland journey between Bwindi and Entebbe.

The park supports 68 mammal species including topi, roan antelope and giant eland. Jackals, leopard and hyenas prey on the abundant herbivores. Birders come especially to seek acacia-specialist species, such as red-faced barbet, which otherwise would be difficult to locate in Uganda.

A cruise on Lake Mburo may reveal crocodile, hippo, pelicans and various other aquatic birds. Guided walks and game drives are offered in the park.
