It stretches from the crater-dotted foothills of the Rwenzori range in the north, along the shores of Lake Edward to the remote Ishasha River in the south, incorporating a wide variety of habitats that range from savanna and wetlands to gallery and lowland forest. This remarkable diversity is reflected in its bird list of over 550 species, the largest of any protected area in Africa.
Kibale National Park
Kibale is an extensive National Park, protecting a large block of rainforest that offers some excellent forest for bird watching.

Many of the facilities are community based, thus providing the local community with the necessary revenue to keep their interest focused on the long-term protection of the area.
Semliki National Park
Situated in a remote corner of southwestern Uganda, Semliki National Park protects an eastern extension of the vast Ituri Forest and forms part of a forest continuum that stretches across the Democratic Republic Of Congo to the Zaire River. Being a relatively stable forest -refugium- during the climatic upheavals of the Pleistocene, this is one of the richest areas for forest birds in Africa. A large number of predominantly Central African species reach the eastern limit of their distribution here and cannot be found anywhere else in East Africa. These include some of the continents most spectacular and sought-after birds such as; Congo Serpent Eagle, Long-tailed Hawk, Nkulengu Rail, Black-wattled Hornbill and Lyre-tailed Honey guide.
Lake Mburo National Park
Lake Mburo N. P. is a very special place. Every part of it is alive with a variety and interesting mix of colours contained in an extensive area of wetland. It is in fact one of the only two such habitats to be included within a National Park in Uganda. It harbours several species of mammals; Zebras, Impala, Buffaloes, and lots of birds. Birds here include bill storks which are found nowhere else in the country. Its sculptured landscape with rolling grassy hills and idyllic lake shore has a varied mosaic of habitats forest galleries, seasonal and permanent swamps and rich acacia wood valleys which all support a wealth of wildlife. With our Uganda safaris and tours you are able to see more of these attractions.
The fabled Mountains of The Moon lie in Western Uganda on the Congolese border, with snow-covered, equatorial peaks rising to height of 5110 m and lower slopes blanketed in moorland and rich montane forest. Most of the park is accessible to hikers with magnificent scenery and 19 Albertine Rift endemics, amongst them; Rwenzori Turaco and Shelleys Crimson wing, would be ample reward for the intrepid, backpacking birder.
