Bird watching & birding is one of Uganda's recreational activities.
Bird watching is a booming international business opportunity that attracts low volume, low impact and high return visitors that can boost rural tourism economies and support jobs in rural areas.
With more accessible birding and bird watching destinations available, there has been a massive increase in the number of bird watchers traveling to Uganda in search of birds to tick off the "life" list.
But despite the large number of birds in Uganda, very few Ugandans are aware of this rich diversity present in the country.

In the month of March, I concluded plans to travel to Nigeria for my Easter holiday. Like most compatriots making travel arrangements to our dear country, I was filled with so much excitement and a sneaky feeling of apprehension.
I was excited because I was going to spend one month with my family and friends alike. I could not help nursing that tiny tinge of apprehension because my friends scattered all over the world made it a point of duty to give me tips on how to beat the snares of kidnappers, armed robbers and trigger-happy policemen.
At the risk of sounding immodest, I was already feeling like Rambo after taking in all the security tips I was bombarded with-I even added a little “macho-swagger” to my steps.
