Uganda, nicknamed the ‘Pearl of Africa’ for its breathtaking natural beauty, is a country brimming with potential in East Africa.

This country is a treasure trove for bird enthusiasts in search of unique and coveted bird and gorilla species.

With its awe-inspiring Murchison Falls and vast savannas, the country showcases a remarkable contrast. Uganda is home to an exceptional diversity of habitats, supporting over 1,100 bird species and providing opportunities to see highly sought-after birds like the Shoebill, Grey Crowned Crane, and the stunning endemic species at the Albertine Rift Valley.
