Join one of the guides of our community on a walk through the wetlands of Bigodi. This walk was initiated by the local community in 1992 and has won a number of awards including the Equator Initiative Award (twice) and Silver during the African Sustainable Tourism Awards 2015. The walk boards the Kabale National Park in western Uganda. It is very rich in both birds and primates with over 200 bird species and 8 primate species. 100% of the net income from this activity benefits local people and projects.

The walk takes around 3 hours. The sanctuary features 8 primate species, numerous other interesting mammals, over 200 bird species, many reptiles, and uncounted varieties of trees, shrubs and vines. On your tour, you will likely see several kinds of monkeys including black and white colobus, red colobus, mangabey, red tail, vervet, and L’Hoest. Other wetlands mammals include baboons, sitatunga (an increasingly endangered swamp antelope), bush pigs, civet cats, mongooses, bushbucks and an occasional chimpanzee. Perhaps the most favorite animal of visitors is the great blue turaco. Also frequently seen are varieties of papyrus gonoleks, hornbills, waxbills, weavers, cuckoos, kingfishers, flycatchers, and many, many others.

You can combine this walk with one of our other activities Tinka’s Homestay in Bigodi or Have dinner with a Batooro family
