DAY 1 - Birding Excursion

After an early morning breakfast, you shall be picked from your hotel in Kampala and head to Mabamba swamp. Upon arrival you shall be briefed by the bird guide and then get on the canoe accompanied by an experienced local paddler who knows his way around the narrow water channel where you shall view the shoebill on the exciting canoe ride. During the process, enjoy viewing countless other birds at a relatively close range. The whole bird watching experience is brilliantly exciting, adventurous and wondrous as you can’t be sure of the bird species you’re going to see on your zigzag trail; you may even see the web-toed sitatunga antelope during your bird watching excursion. After head back to Kampala, end of excursion.
