Echuya Forest Reserve is a fantastic birding destination located in the southerwestern part of the country near the Rwandan border. It is home to roughly 150 species of birds, eighteen of which are endemic to the reserve, including the elusive Grauer’s Swamp warbler. The forest is ranked as Uganda’s most important forest habitat due to the rarity of it’s flora and fauna and has much potential for sustainable tourism initiatives due to the dense human population of the area and the growing interactions between these people and the forest.
