postcard from Mabamba Swamp

Lying just 45 minutes from Entebbe International airport, the Mabamba swamp is world-famous as the site for seeing shoebill and provides plenty of other species too such as the common and widespread yellow-billed duck. We made it our first stop on a recent private tour to Uganda.

Malachite kingfishers wait along the narrow channels as you search for the shoebill.

We got incredibly close to one shoebill this year, a memorable encounter with an iconic species.
