Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National park is one of the most important sites for birds in Uganda. 23 of Uganda’s 25 Albertine Rift endemics are found here.

This birding safari package special offers a birding excursion to different parts of this forest and concentrates efforts on locating the endemics. We visit the higher area of Ruhizha for the high altitude species.

We also take time to bird the neck a site frequently overlooked by many hasty birders. Finally we finish with Buhoma the northern part of the forest which hosts a variety of low altitude endemics.

Day 1 Meet and greet at Entebbe International Airport by your birding guide who will welcome you and take you to your hotel. Depending on the arrival time, you can bird the botanical gardens near Lake Victoria. O/N Entebbe Airport View Hotel.
