Johnnie Kamugisha was featured in Birder's World Magazine as
one of two top guides in Uganda.  One of our trip hosts has
been exploring Uganda birding possibilities for several years
and has spoken to many birders to learn about the best
birding spots and the best local guides.  Johnnie was highly
recommended by everyone who birded with him.  Two of our
business partners have birded with Johnnie, and we believe his
hospitality and trip leadership will make your trip enjoyable, safe
and comfortable.  Not only does Johnnie know the bird calls he
hears, he can call back to the birds without the use of
recordings.  Johnnie has been guiding throughout Uganda for
over a decade and is recognized by many as the top bird guide
in the country.

Brief Overview
Our typical birding and wildlife trip in Uganda begins in
Kampala.  A first day at the Entebbe Botanical Gardens, Lake
Victoria and other Kampala locales is worthwhile for finding a
number of bird species.  Then we travel to Mabamba Swamp
the next morning for Shoebill and numerous other species.  
Next is Queen Elizabeth National Park for great African wildlife
and birds over two days.  Other destinations over the week will
include Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (both Buhoma
and Ruhija) and Lake Mburo National Park.  Most trips are
then extended (based upon group interest) to Kibale National
Park, Semuliki National Park, Budongo Forest Reserve,  
Muchison Falls National Park and many other birding spots
along the way.  350 to 400 bird species will be seen on the
base trip, with about 20 to 40 more per day on each day of an
