1 Day Mabamba Wetland Tour

Visiting Mabamba swamp is a matchless birding experience especially setting your eyes on the elusive Shoebill stork. The Knowledgeable guides will help you navigate through the papyrus channels by canoe to understand the unique birdlife of this entire area.

Itinerary

You will be picked from your Hotel in Entebbe very early in the morning to arrive at Mabamba bay in time. Proceed to the starting point by either boat or your car depending on the starting point. You will soon embark on a canoe safari through the papyrus channels as it is the best way to explore the shallow waters and getting a closer view of the birds. The swamp is home to numerous bird species like the African Jacanas, pied Kingfisher, African fish eagle, long-toed Lapwing, yellow-billed duck, Goliath Heron, Malachite Kingfisher and the shoebill stork. Our major focus will however be on the Shoebill stork which is one of the most sought after birds in this area.  Break off for lunch and launch a nature walk around the Mabamba bay to explore the ecosystem and learn about the flora and fauna that inhabit the area. Engage in a community interaction with the local community to understand their livelihoods and conservation efforts of these people.

Depart Mabamba later in the evening and head back to your Hotel in Entebbe or at the airport for your flight.
