Uganda is landlocked and falls at the confluence of a number of regional centers of endemism or biomes in Central Africa, each with characteristic avifauna. From the source of the Nile on Lake Victoria to the snow-capped Rwenzori ranges, the montane forests and volcanoes to the semi-arid plains of Karamoja, Uganda is an equatorial country of astonishing contrast.

Over 20% of the surface area of Uganda is covered by wetlands – both open water bodies and marshes of Papyrus reed beds, Miscanthus, etc. Not less than 210 species, ranging from the Shoebill and African Skimmer to the endemic Fox’s Weaver, are found in these wetlands. In addition to the above are four Papyrus endemics: the Papyrus Gonolek, Papyrus Canary, White-winged Warbler and Papyrus Yellow Warbler. Bi-annual waterfowl counts in Uganda have further revealed the roost of 2 to 3 million White-winged Black Terns in Lutembe bay. In Uganda savanna varies from the remote, semi-desert, dry thorn-scrub region of Karamoja in the Northeast, to the richer fertile savannas of the western rift valley. Queen Elizabeth National Park alone has a bird list of 611 species.

There is undoubtedly no other area in Africa that can match Uganda’s astounding diversity of habitats (despite the fact that there are no coastal habitats). This richness is reflected in the burgeoning bird list of over 1030 species, representing more than half of the bird species found in the whole of Africa, over 10% of the world bird list! Imagine 5 biomes in an area of 236,040 sq km!
