From the source of the White Nile on Lake Victoria to the snow-capped Rwenzori Range and the montane splendours of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, harbouring some of the last remaining Mountain Gorillas, Uganda is an equatorial country of astonishing contrasts. No other area in Africa can match its amazing diversity of habitats (all in an area approximately the size of Great Britain!), and this richness is reflected in its incredible bird list of over 1000 species, making it arguably the richest African birding destination.
Amongst these are many highly sought-after birds such as the unique Shoebill and the numerous spectacular endemics of the Albertine Rift Valley. This budget tour provides a comprehensive coverage of the highlights of this incredible nation at a much reduced price, and aside from the birds, offers superb game viewing and the chance to track Mountain Gorillas and Chimpanzees!
