    Detailed safari

    1 Day Mabamba Birding Tour :This 1 day tour to Mabamba swamp will begin in Entebbe/Kampala. It will take you to one of Uganda’s most gifted areas with a variety of bird species. Some of which can’t be traced elsewhere in the world. The Mabamba wetland is located on the peripheries of Lake Victoria towards Western Uganda.

    The most famous bird species in the area is the Shoe-bill which is common in four countries including Uganda, Rwanda, South Sudan and Zambia but you can best see it at Mabamba swamp in Uganda. Indeed, a visit to Mabamba is rewarding with amazing sights.


    Mabamba wetland can best be accessed from either Kampala or Entebbe by car or by boat from Entebbe. The drive from Entebbe/Kampala to Mabamba takes about one hour depending on the number of stops. You are advised to leave your hotel early to avoid the traffic and also before the heat from the sun is too much which reduces bird activity. From Entebbe you access it better by a boat and once you arrive you leave the speed boat and join the canoe to access the possible location of the shoebill at Mabamba; Birding 1 Day Mabamba Birding Tour.
