Safari Vacations and Travel Services driver/guide pick you up and will drive you to Lake Mburo National Park via the Equator to start your 3-Day Uganda Savannah Birding Safari. You will have stops on the way as you sport several birds. As we transfer there will be numerous stopovers looking out for certain bird species within their hardly missed localities. The Wolly-Necked Stork, Lilac Breasted Roller, and Rufous rufous-bellied heron are among the birds of interest in this transfer. Stopping at the equator for photography and stretching up will be worthwhile on this birding route in Uganda.
