A half-day trip by boat across Lake Victoria from Entebbe, puts you with a great chance of spotting the elusive African Shoebill, which inhabits the Mabamba Swamps. The morning is the most popular time to visit, to coincide with their hunting behaviour – anything from mudfish, frogs is fair game. Head into the swamps quietly by canoe and keep your eyes peeled for a prehistoric looking predator standing in wait for its prey.
