Shoebill at Mabamba Bay - Birds and Primates Tour

Overview of the Bird and Primate Tour

Uganda is landlocked and falls at the influence of several regional centres of endemism making it the best place in East Africa for Birdwatching.

Uganda has a wide range of habitats ranging from snowcapped mountain tops in the west to semi-arid areas in the north-east; rainforest in the centre and west to open waters of numerous lakes

The diversity of habitats explains the unique biological diversity and the bulk of the country lies in tropical Africa with the Equator crossing the southern half of the country. It is bounded by the Rift valley in the West through range highlands along the western border including the Ruwenzori Mountain and the Virungas in the southwestern corner.
