Uganda Bird Guides Club

The Uganda Bird Guides Club stands as one of the oldest indigenous bird guides clubs in Africa, founded by Mr. Herbert Byaruhanga with a vision of elevating Uganda as a premier birding destination in East Africa and the entire continent. The inception of the club was spurred by the recognition of the need for a national bird guides association, prompting Mr. Byaruhanga to embark on recruiting members.
