Uganda Birding Safaris are unique and interesting! The country is a gem for ornithologists and a birders' ultimate destination Uganda has more bird species per square kilometer than any other country of Africa and has a national list of over 1010 species of birds. Out of thiis figure more than half the bird species that can be found in the whole of Africa.
Diversification of Uganda is as a result of its variety of habitants: arid semi-dessert, rich savannahs, snow capped mountains, lowland and montane rainforests, vast wetlands, volcanoes and an Afro-alpine zone. Uganda covers an altitude from 650 to 5000 meters above sea level.

Uganda boasts some of the best remaining natural forests in Africa and one particular region is the Albertine Rift Endemic area (ARE), which has 38 species of birds confined to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and Congo. Of these ARE's Uganda has 25 mostly confined to the forests of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Ichuya forest, and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Parks in the southwest.

For any birder, Uganda Bird watching Safaris to Queen Elizabeth national park with over 611 bird species offer excellent birding experience comparable to none other in Africa. 350 species have been recorded in the Bwindi Impenetrable forest. These two parks alone are among the richest protected areas to be found anywhere on Earth. Accolades for Uganda's birding delights are rarely understated. "In terms of its size, Uganda is the richest country for birds in Africa." And this immense volume and diversity occurs miraculously in a space which keen birders can cover in a relatively short visit.
