12 Days Uganda Photography Birding Tour Safaris trip is one of the most interesting for our kin birding clients as most of the locations are Ecological Hot- spots and relatively within the wealthy Albertine Rift Valley which is not only Uganda but Africa’s Richest Zone for most endemic and globally threatened species of birds. 12 Days Uganda Photography Birding Tour Safaris takes us to Mgahinga, Bwindi and most especially Ruhizha the No.1 birding site in Africa, Ruwenzori and finally Semliki. These are so far the best birding spots in Uganda and have different ecosystems and each attracting a species different from the other. Uganda Photography Birding Tour Safaris offers a fantastic overview for those with less time on their hands.
