Bird watching safaris in Uganda are thriving with a vast gemstone of over 1,000 bird species that have attracted attention in recent years. Uganda’s story of bird watching is a bad to good narration. There was always a scuffle between bird watchers and the local people who settled around the birding places. Back then, residents could chase bird watchers with machetes suspecting them to be land grabbers who were trying to inspect and take their land forcefully.
However, the continued efforts of several organizations to promote and shape bird watching like the Uganda Bird Guides Club has now helped to turn Uganda into an Ornithologist’s dream. The presence of thousands of bird species in Uganda’s variety of rainforests makes the Pearl of Africa one of the bird watching destinations in Africa and the world at large.
