11 Days Birding in Uganda
The following is a recommended birding Itinerary around Uganda. This is intended to help you maximize the time you spend in the country and takes into account such factors as the ease access of the sites, their productivity (the time required to see a fair proportion of the birds) and their “importance” to the Itinerant birder (hence, the montane forests of the Albertine Rift valley have a higher priority than these of mountain Elgon). We must stress that this does NOT mean that areas not included are not worth birding, only that other sites may be more worthwhile for birds with time constrains.
