Adventure

A beautiful sunny day start and all morning and evening pleasant weather for a dry season on a Mabamba Shoebill Tour. Comfortable for birding, we could not wish for more. We hit the short drive to one of the world’s two top sites for finding the Shoebill; a giant bird that birdwatchers like to describe as prehistoric. The Mabamba wetlands are only a small portion of the extensive marshes surrounding Africa’s largest freshwater body; Lake Victoria. These shallow muddy marshes have attracted an endless list of aquatic wildlife,

The last time I visited the Entebbe Botanical Gardens Birding was last June. Evergreen and lively gardens in the middle of an urban setting. A surrounding too urban to expect tropical primary forest wildlife like Mantled Guereza and gigantic fruit-feeding birds like the Great Blue Turaco and Black-and-white-casqued Hornbills. That June, most of the lower part hard submerged! You know we have experienced a reasonably unusual rise in the mighty Lake Victoria's water level for over a year now. Thanks to December, January, February and March dry season,

AUGUST 2021 18 DAY UGANDA BIRDING AND NATURE TRIP REPORT  Dates: July 31 to August 17, 2021 Trip Report and all photos by Crammy Wanyama2021 Uganda Birding Report - Half of the participants on this tour had done a Ugandan tour two years back. On the previous trip, we focused on the westerly circuit. Therefore, this time being an avid and well-travelled birding team, our primary focus was on the east and northeast to find specialities of the Somali-Masai biome but with interest in the west catch up with

Kenya Birding Trip Report - Four years back, we did an Uganda tour of about the same number of days, nearly a clean sweep of the whole list expected in the country. After an extensive inventory from several African countries, the team had a target list in Kenya. For 25 days, the focus was on less than a quarter of the Kenyan birds, which explains how travelled the team was. However, being keen birders and naturalists, we still loved looking at every one of those seen in the

Our tours are primarily birding adventures, and that is because we know and believe it is worth to spend lots of hours out there observing how crafty nature was at evolution. There are countless lives of other wild animals below the magnificent birds. Some so beautiful while others rise alien curiosity to the bird watchers. Our tours have evolved into typical birding and nature tours for such backgrounds. This is part of our everyday life that even when we the guides are spending a year or more at

Kidepo - East and Northeastern Uganda Birding - Hot-selling New DestinationBeautiful country tourism roads, one thing I must credit the Uganda Government for. Exploring the East and Northeast of Uganda has been slow because of the roads, now they are fixed. The birds and reptiles down and up there are very tempting to see. If you have only done the West and Southwest, the birds here are the kind that will make you feel like you haven’t birded Africa’s birding capital. The Avian Safaris team often checks out

COVID-19 update Uganda- When the outbreak started and still kept at a distance, a couple of weeks back, we did not imagine that the world would change to an almost unrecognisable degree a few weeks later. Being in the international travel business, we acted steadfast in response to the local governments' recommendations against non-essential travels. We all decided to keep home as soon as our active trips ended.We anticipated that the world would contain the situation shortly, alas, we were no geniuses to get it right! The whole
