Uganda is a country of stunning landscapes and incredible animals. Not only does it offer gorilla trekking and chimp trekking opportunities, but it is also one of the best birding spots in Africa. This 6-day birding safari will take you to the Mabamba Wetlands on the fringes of Lake Victoria, one of the best spots in the world to spot the rare and fascinating shoebill stork. From here you are spoiled for choice. You can either travel on to Queen Elizabeth National Park for the chance to see grassland and savannah species, or choose to visit Lake Mburo. At both destinations, you will be able to enjoy a boat ride to explore the area. You will then travel to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where the Albertine Rift endemics can be found. While in Bwindi, you will have the option to add a gorilla trekking experience onto your tour. This is a unique opportunity to visit these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
