Birding in Mabamba

By Linda Tancs

Uganda’s Mabamba Bay is designated an Important Bird Area (IBA), one of the best marshy areas along the northern shores of Lake Victoria for bird watching. Besides Murchison Falls National Park, Mabamba is the only place where the elusive shoebill can be spotted. It’s also a haven for threatened species such as the blue swallow, pallid harrier, papyrus gonolek and white-winged warbler. Overall, more than 260 species have been recorded in these wetlands.
