Testimonials of Bird Watching trips on Mount Moroto

Read the testimonials and experiences of Uganda’s prominent bird watchers with us on Mount Moroto.

Karamoja’s bird habitat is Unique for Uganda

They favour an impressive collection of the Somali-Masai biome bird species. Birding this area is a whole new adventure for one who has only covered the traditional Uganda birding tour that traverses the central, southwestern and western parts of the country. While exploring Mountain Moroto’s southern rocky slopes, acacia and broad-leaved woodlands, we added a couple of incredible birds that included the Orange River (Archer’s) Francolin, Wahlberg’s Honeyguide, Grey Wren-warbler, Uncommon Hemprich’s Hornbill and The restricted-range African Citril.”
