On the same tour you can find Black and White Colobus Monkeys. And on the way there you pass through Lake Mburo National Park where zebras, waterbuck and long-horned cattle abound.
Continuing the primate theme, Murchison Falls National Park on wildlife tours in Uganda brings contact with Chimpanzees and Vervet Monkeys. Here there are also interesting smaller mammals such as the Chequered Elephant-shrew. And there’s a chance to see Nile Crocodiles, Hippopotamus and African Elephants. The area around Murchison also offers some superb locations for spectacular bird sightings. A diverse checklist for this country covers more than 1,000 species. These include such delights as flocks of Crested Guineafowl and Rock Pranticoles. In the riverine forests there are Spotted Palm Thrush and Purple-banded Sunbird, among many others.
For birdwatchers, a wildlife tour in Uganda and a visit to Mabamba swamp brings sightings of the weird and wonderful Shoebill. Rufous-bellied herons, Lesser Jacanas and Northern Brown-throated Weavers are just some of the other birds in these wetlands. Queen Elizabeth National Park has a wealth of amazing raptors such as Bateleur, Tawny and Wahlberg’s Eagles. It is also the place to see a variety of water birds, notably Great White and Pink-backed Pelicans.
If you are looking for forest species you can head to the Budongo Forest and particularly the Royal Mile. This broad road gives easy access to some of the shyer woodland birds. Speckled and Yellow-throated Tinker Birds are found here, as well as Yellow-spotted and Hairy-breasted Barbets. There is also Mabira Forest, home to Crowned Eagles. All-in-all, a wildlife tour in Uganda is a birder’s dream holiday.
