Bird Watching

Jehovah Tours & Travel runs different private and scheduled small group bird watching tours to specific places all year long. These tours are friendly and relaxed leisure adventures aimed at satisfying the curiosity and anxiety of people who have a passion of bird watching. These tours also provide a favourable opportunity for photography. Some tours combine bird watching with wildlife safaris and adventure activities so as to offer a well stocked package.

Our bird watching safaris are conducted by professional bird guides whose aim is to give information on the different species of birds in Uganda.

Please check our safari packages for detailed itineraries.

For those curious on specific birds, or groups of birds, we would be pleasured to offer advice about birding in Uganda. This will in turn help us design Tailor-made safaris with you.  Please enquire for more details.
