Avian Safaris set out to do something different; to offer birders birdwatching expeditions far from the ordinary, customised, unique, relaxed, energetic, bonding and indulgent vacations for individuals and families.

We can “tailor-make” a birdwatching trip that will linger in a lifetime’s worth of memories.

On Avian Safaris’ tours, you will visit birdwatching spots untouched by mass tourism, have endemic, endangered, and restricted species, and have fun with new friends from around the world who share your sense of adventure. Take some time and look at our website’s attractive range of Tours/Safaris and Excursions. We are very flexible and want you to get the most out of your birding time. Please tell us precisely what you have in mind, and we will happily arrange something for you.

Value for Money at Avian Safaris

Consistent, high-quality services cannot be provided at a significant discount, although Avian Safaris is dedicated to providing quality and satisfactory tours and excursions at affordable prices.

You will find our sales consultants friendly, supremely knowledgeable and prepared to go that extra mile to ensure you have the most excellent tour at the most attractive price without compromising the experience. When you contact us, you will have the direct telephone numbers of your consultant throughout the booking process.

Financial Security

Avian Safaris is a Ugandan fully registered business and bonded tour operator (No. 187156 in the index of registration), so you can be sure that all payments made to us in advance of your tour are adequately protected. It might be pretty challenging to let you know how important it is to book your tours with a reliable company. It may cost a bit more, but a financial failure that leaves you with a severe problem is far less likely.

We are such a credible tour operator company in the country; this is evident from our strong ties with the prime stakeholders in Uganda’s tourism industry. Not only are we corporate members of Nature Uganda (NU)- a branch of the East Africa Natural History Society (EANHS), Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA)- The umbrella association of guides and guides clubs in Uganda, Uganda Bird Guides Club, Uganda Cultural Guides Club, but also in good books with Uganda Wildlife Authority, Uganda Tourism Board along with several others.

Avian Safaris Group Size

At Avian Safaris, we have low group size limits for any extensive birdwatching tour. Our Off-the-shelf tours of six (6) individuals will bread a quality tour since better communication is assured, and there are higher chances of seeing birds clearly and firmly even when birding in Uganda’s Rain Forests.

Quality Hotels

We operate with various hotels that have been carefully selected on merit and frequently checked to ensure they meet our rigorous standards; many have been chosen for their commitment to sustainable tourism. As well as location, our selection also reflects our personal preference for places with character where the owners and managers like to engage with their guests.

We have contracts with a significant number of Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda hotels; this means we can pass on substantial savings to our clients and guarantees us the control to ensure the content and quality of your stay is of acceptable standards.

Avian Safaris Comfortable Reliable 4×4 Vehicles

We have 4×4 vehicles, suitable for various road conditions and game drives with ‘pop-up’ tops to maximise birding and Game viewing even in the savannah amidst the wild beasts. All vehicles have seat belts, a window seat for every member on board to enjoy magnificent views and photography and the comfort of all passengers. They all have a ‘no smoking’ policy.

Avian Safaris Birding Guide

A trained and professional bird guide is essential for any birdwatching tour; our guides are carefully chosen on merit. They are personable and knowledgeable, with impressive academic and professional backgrounds. They have all the skills to conduct an extended birding tour professionally and ensure everyone has a great time.

Avian Safaris professional local birding guides have grown up within their guiding areas (Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda), chasing after birds and small mammals as children. They have gone through Bird, Cultural, Wildlife, and extensive tour guiding courses and belong to regional guides clubs. In Uganda, they are members of the Uganda Bird Guides Club (UBGC), Uganda Cultural Guides Club (UCGC) and Uganda Safari Guides Association (USAGA) which is the umbrella association for all guide clubs in the country.

Our Knowledgeable Birding guides fluently speak English, and there is hardly a question they are likely not to answer. They will guide you on your excursion, tour, or safari to all the birding spots included in the itinerary and work to their best for every group member to see a specific bird at a place. Their expertise guarantees leading you to sought-after species, hence an excellent experience.

We emphasise quality guided birdwatching tours: The primary aim of our guides is to show you those birds which are remarkable and elusive, the likes of the endemics, restricted-range, endangered, vulnerable and threatened.

Please note that a knowledgeable guide is vital to the success of any organised birdwatching trip, and for independent birdwatchers with high expectations, hiring a local guide is highly beneficial because it increases the chances of seeing the less common and domestic species, contributes to the local economy and creates an incentive to protect birds.
