Safari Highlights

Mabamba Swamp:

Mabamba swamp is located on the fringes of Lake Victoria towards western Uganda. Mabamba swamp is famous for birds especially ‘the Shoebill’ which is known to occur in mainly four countries i.e. Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Zambia but it is best seen at Mabamba swamp in Uganda.  You can access Mabamba wetland from either Kampala or Entebbe by car or by boat from Entebbe. The drive to Mabamba from Entebbe or Kampala takes approximately one hour depending on the number of stops birding. You need to leave your hotel really early to beat the traffic and also before the heat from the sun is too much which reduces bird activity. You can access the swamp by boat on from Entebbe, once you arrive you leave the speed boat and  join the canoe to access the possible location of the shoebill.

 

Lake Mburo National Park

Lake Mburo National Park is a compact gem, located conveniently close to the highway that connects Kampala to the parks of western Uganda. This attractive 158 square miles acacia-dotted savanna of Olea and Boscia is home to 68 mammal species. The Park contains an extensive area of wetland and harbors several species of mammals, including zebra and impala, eland, buffalo, oribi, Defassa waterbuck, leopard, hippo, hyena, topi and reedbuck

It is the smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks and underlain by ancient Precambrian metamorphic rocks which date back more than 500 million years. It is home to 350 bird species as well as zebra, impala, with around 315 bird species include the rare Shoebill Stork and African Finfoot.
