About Mabamba Shoebill Half Day Tour

Mabamba is a wetland located on the northern shore of Lake Victoria, and its best known for the elusive shoebill stork; one of the world's most sought-after birds. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by the sight of hundreds of water lilies and papyrus swamps. The highlight of the tour is a canoe ride through the swamp, where you'll get to see a variety of bird species, including the shoebill and many others. Following a successful shoebill encounter, sail back to the mainland and visit the Reptile Village alongside Entebbe Botanical Gardens.
