We’ll visit the lush afromontane rainforests of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, with optional Mountain Gorilla tracking; the savanna, lakes and forests of Queen Elizabeth National Park, which holds the 16 km wide Kyambura Gorge, home to chimpanzee; and the acacia savanna and lakes of Lake Mburo National Park. We’ll include three boat trips, one on the Kasinga channel among African Skimmers, bathing hippos and elephants; another along the shores of Lake Mburo in search of White-backed Night-Heron and African Finfoot; and a third on the swamps of Lake Victoria in search of the legendary Shoebill. This trip is filled with birds, primates and diverse East African scenery. We stay minimum 2 nights in each National park in comfortable to upper range accommodation. If you’d like to join or see the details, please contact us at info@birdingafrica.com or +27 21 531 9148.

We also offer a Uganda Specials Tour in July 2012, in search of Green-breasted Pitta, African Green Broadbill and Shoebill, with an optional extension to Rwanda’s Nyungwe Forest.
