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.
