1 Day Mabamba Shoebill Stork




Mabamba swamp located at the shores of Lake Victoria is traditionally one of the few places to spot the rare and elusive shoebill stock in central Uganda. Those intending to visit Mabamba shoebill stork should contact Peak Cruise safaris since we organize day trips from either Entebbe or Kampala.

Mabamba shoebill stork

We have two options to Mabamba Swamp. We can drive from Entebbe or Kampala to Mabamba or use a water route from Entebbe to Mabamba Swamp. At mabamba swamp, we normally use a canoe to maneuver through the thin pass in the swamp until we find the mabamba shoebill stock. It’s about one hour drive from Entebbe to Mabamba and this place is best visited in the morning. For those interested in water birds, we recommend going to mabamba by boats on lake Victoria so that you get to spot more birds than you can while driving.

Other places to see the shoebill is Makanaga as well as the Uganda Wildlife Education Center in Entebbe. Those that have safaris to Lake Mburo or Murchison Falls National Park, please try out a boat to the Albert delta. There many chances of spotting shoebills. Contact Peak Cruise safaris and we will arrange for you a day trip to see mabamba shoebill stork
