BIRDING IN MURCHISON FALLS

MURCHISON FALLS is Uganda’s oldest and largest national park, named after the mighty waterfall of the same name – formed as the mighty Nile River is forced through a 7-metre gap in the rocks. The park is home to about 450 bird species, and birding can be done on a game drive, via a boat trip (on the Nile) or a nature walk. Habitat types include forest, swamp, riverine woodland, palm Savannah and acacia-dotted plain

The riverine thickets hold white-crested turaco, double-toothed barbet, red-throated bee-eater, Heuglin’s francolin, brown babbler, silver bird, buff-bellied warbler, black-headed batis, and bar-breasted fire finch. Puvel’s illadopsis can also found near the chimp researchers’ camp. There is plenty of open palm Savannah, which is an excellent haunt for Abyssinian ground-horn bill, Senegal lapwing, Shelley’s Rufus sparrow and the strange-looking piapiac. The Nile delta is of course home to the near-mythical shoe bill stork.
