Details of Bird watching in Rumbodo Island

The lakeshore forest is inhabited by gorgeous birds such as the Malachite kingfisher and the Paradise-flycatcher. The swampy lake fringes are the homelands of herons, spoonbills and storks.

During the northern winter thousands of Eurasian migratory birds use the Rubondo Island. The island's bay is guarded by African fish eagles, whose population on this Island is the largest in the world. Other birds worth to see while you're on Rubondo Island are Sacred Ibis, martial Eagle, Saddle-billed Stork, Bee-eaters, Hornbill, Coucal and Sunbirds.
