Visit Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary; paradise for birders

Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary is a paradise for birders; it is believed around 200 species can be found here.  This includes the Black-billed turaco and Yellow-billed barbet. A number of primates also visit the swamp.

Adjacent to Kibale National Park, this area in Magombe swamp is recognised for its biodiversity. It is also renowned for  its community-based approach to natural resources management. This has economic benefits for the locals and ensures the conservation of the wetland is sustainable.
