1 Day Bird Watching Safari to Buso Forest is for keen on birdwatchers and is a delightful choice. Let me provide you with a detailed itinerary for this exciting adventure: The Buso Forest is situated approximately 5 kilometers off the Kampala-Luwero Road, which translates to a 1 ½ hour drive from Kampala. Buso Forest is a serene spot, perfect for picnics and eco-tours. It was established in 1995 by the Tropical Environmental Foundation (TEFO). The forest covers 30 acres of land and boasts an impressive array of biodiversity, including flora and fauna. Tree Species: By 1999, the forest had already hosted 127 tree species, 40 butterfly species, and about 120 bird species.
