The area in and around offers a variety of exciting birding opportunities. Uganda’s large and modern capital lies on the northern shores of Lake Victoria, Its well wooded outskirts supporting a wide variety of birds. In fact, the city of Kampala may provide your best chance of seeing certain species such as Bat Hawk and African Hobby. Both breed regularly in tall trees in the urban area and are commonly observed overhead at dusk in the city centre for example around Makerere University and the Sheraton Hotel.
Another good spot for these spectacular birds is near Backpackers Hostel, African Hobby has rested in the campsite and Bat Hawk is regularly seen nearby. Take the second left after the turn off to the Backpackers Hostel on the road to Natete and walk down, a Bat Hawk often perches in the massive tree here at dust.
