Sunbird Hill is ideally situated for chimp tracking in Kibale Forest.  It is a haven for bird watchers and those who love butterflies too!

National and international experts who visit Sunbird Hill include ornithologists, lepidopterists, herpetologists, botanists, primatologists and bird ringing (banding) specialists. Sunbird Hill is situated on private land bordering Kibale Forest.

The Birders’ Lounge is a large thatched bird-themed shelter that houses our growing reference library and covers topics including: ornithology, mammalogy, primatology, entomology, herpetology, and botany, as well as conservation and African travel. .

Sunbird Hill Bird Club meets 8 a.m. every Saturday at the Birders’ Lounge for a nature walk before heading back to the Birders’ Lounge for refreshments and documentation of our findings. Guests who are staying overnight at Sunbird Hill are welcome to join our Saturday morning walks.

Butterfly Cottage and Turaco Treehouse at Sunbird Hill are available on a bed and breakfast basis. For all other meals, we suggest eating at The Bee Hive Bar & Bistro opposite Bigodi Swamp just 3.5 km drive from Sunbird Hill.
