Activities: Mabamba Swamp is close by Entebbe and it is home to the Shoebill Stork. This pre-historic looking bird is a special sight both for birders and non-birders. To see it stand like a statue in the middle of the swamp as it waits to catch a fish is a fascinating sight. You search the channels in the swamp in a small boat with a specialized guide.
