Lake Victoria Birding Experience

Lake Zone

Birdlife

from USD$ 25.00

Lake Victoria is the largest of Africa’s Great Lakes and the largest tropical lake in the world. It is home to over 400 species of birds to thrill and excite both keen ornithologists and nature lovers. Vistors can view a wide variety of birds on any one day including Malabou storks, Kites, Kingfishers, Bee-Eaters, Weavers and Swallows.

Its importance for biodiversity is highlighted by the fact that there are 17 important bird and biodiversity areas directly connected to the lake system, and more in the wider Lake Victoria Basin.

The lake supports Africa’s largest inland fishery, and its resources and ecosystem help sustain not only the birdlife but the livelihoods of communities across the region

Join our birding expert, Mugashe, for a bird watching tour either on foot or by boat around Lake Victoria.

PRICING

Our price is per person and will be based on numbers in the group and any specific requirements.

MEET OUR BIRDING EXPERT, MUGASHE

Mugashe was born in Bukoba and his deep knowledge about this local environment (flora and fauna) is gained from over 40 years guiding across the Lake Zone. He honed his skills as a young man in the world renouned Lake Manyara National Park  - being the chosen tour guide to introduce the wildlife of the area to a then young american senator who later became the President of the United States, Barrick Obama!

 

A natural teacher, Mugashe moved on to work in the world famous Serengeti National Park where he translated knowledge about the park to both the local community (swahili) and international organisations (e.g. World Vision, German) helping develop their understanding and appreciation of this sanctury. He returned to his home town of Bukoba in later years, and today works as a school teacher spending any free time he has birding on the shore of the lake. We are honoured to have him to call upon for our birding experiences!
