Day 14 of the 21 Days Uganda Bird Watching Tour: Birding in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Buhoma Sector

We will start our day with an early breakfast at 7.00am and then embark on a full day birding expeditions to search out the avian wonders of Bwindi exploring the magical Buhoma Sector. We will either have a packed lunch somewhere in the forest today, or return to the lodge for lunch before birding in the afternoon again. We hope to see a variety of fantastic birds including the Bar-tailed Trogon, Kivu groundthrush, Dusky tit, Handsome francolin, Northern Double-collared Sunbird, Red-throated Alethe, the rarely seen Oberlander’s Ground-Thrush, White-bellied Crested-Flycatcher, White-bellied Robin-Chat, Bocage’s Bushshrike, Black-billed Weaver, and Magpie Mannikin.

We will keep our eyes high in the exposed perches for dazzling Black Bee-eater, Blue-throated Roller, Sooty Flycatcher and forest starlings including Waller’s, Stuhlmann’s and Narrow-tailed. The tiny, vocal and highly secretive Neumann’s Warbler is often seen in the undergrowth. Other understory birds could include African Broadbill, Banded Prinia and the surprisingly bright Black-faced Rufous-Warbler.

At the mid-story and canopy, we will search for Elliot’s and Tullberg’s Woodpeckers, Cabanis’s, Shelley’s and Ansorge’s greenbul, the strange Grauer’s Warbler, and White-browed Crombec. The little Jameson’s Antpecker can be found at any level, probing under moss on dead branches or gleaning warbler-like in the canopy.

Aside from the amazing avian species we’ll see a variety of colourful butterflies, flowering plants and several monkeys like Black-and-white colobus, L’Hoest’s, blue and red-tailed monkeys. We’ll retire from activity for relaxation dinner and overnight.

Highlight of the day: – Full day bird watching nature walk search of avian wonders of Buhoma Sector of Bwindi.

Day 15 of the 21 Days Uganda Bird Watching Tour: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi – Buhoma Sector

We’ll rise very early at around 5.00am for this 21 days Uganda bird watching tour’s main highlight – trekking the endangered Mountain gorillas! We’ll have hearty breakfast at around 6.00 am and embark on a short drive to the Buhoma park headquarters and meet with the excellent local ranger guides. At around 8.00am, the guides will provide an informative talk on the gorilla trekking etiquette and the experience. Ugandan authorities are fiercely protective of this natural treasure and allow only a maximum of 6 visitors per day (currently) to visit a particular gorilla family.

After briefing, the trekking group will then head into the forest in search of these great apes of Africa. The trek takes 2-8 hours depending on the location of the gorilla family and you allowed 1 hour with them after encountering them. Owing to the nature of the terrain and the need to explore to find the gorillas, the trek doesn’t follow a path and instead the guides will cut a route through the undergrowth. Strong footwear is essential and we recommend hiring a local porter to help you carry your bag/camera equipment and provide a steady, supportive hand (porters will be arranged and paid for locally on the day).

Seeing wild Mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is indeed an experience you will never forget. An adult male can weigh up to 220kg and reach 6 feet in height. Gorillas are gentle creatures and are not known to attack unless very severely provoked. The minimum distance that we must keep when we are with the gorillas is 10 metres – we’re not permitted any closer because gorillas are very susceptible to human disease since they share over 98% of our DNA. Please note that if you’re unwell with anything contagious, even a common cold, you’ll not be allowed to trek gorillas. We’ll retreat from the activity back to the lodge for relaxation, dinner and overnight.

Highlight of the day: – The one magical hour with the endangered Mountain gorillas of Bwindi.

Day 16 of the 21 Days Uganda Bird Watching Tour: Birding to Ruhija Sector of Bwindi through Neck

After a relaxed breakfast this morning at around 8.00am, we’ll have another full day of birding in Bwindi. We’ll once again either have a packed lunch somewhere in a nice spot in the forest, or return to the lodge for lunch and some down time.

 

We will go birding in the Ruhija sector, and although not a large area, the birds are normally so good we’ll move very slowly. In scrubby areas beyond Buhoma sector, we’ll search for Ross’s Turaco, Brown-backed Scrub-Robin, Red-throated Wryneck as well as Bronze, Copper and Variable Sunbirds, Black-necked and Holub’s Golden Weavers; Yellow Bishop and Black-throated Seed-eater. We will pass through Kitahurira or “The Neck,’ another well-known birding spot in Uganda that serious birders from all over the world come to. It is a offs spectacular sites of Black sparrowhawk, Western bronze-naped pigeon, Cinnamon-chested bee-eater, Cassin’s honeybird, Petit’s cuckooshrike, White-chinned prinia, Mountain wagtail, Pink-footed puffback, the rare tiny Sunbird and the Dapper brown-capped weaver.

 

Later we will continue to some more open cultivated areas, with thick bracken areas that also host other species including many seedeaters like Dusky Twinspot and Yellow-bellied and Black-crowned Waxbills; African Stonechat, Thick-billed Seedeater and Yellow-crowned Canary. We also search for the noisy Chubb’s Cisticola providing cheerful song from deep within the bracken, the stunning Doherty’s Bushshrike appearing from the dense vegetation, and Mackinnon’s Shrike surveying the road from high, exposed perches. Retire for dinner and overnight.

We’ll start our day with an early breakfast at 7.00am and then embark on a whole day birding exploration in Ruhija’s famous Mubwindi Swamp. We set off for the steep descent to Mubwindi and the seemingly steeper ascent back the same way! Here our main target is the rare, endangered and localised Grauer’s Broadbill or African Green Broadbill, one of Africa’s most sought-after birds. This special bird species is only known from two sites in the world, the other being a remote forest in eastern Democratic Republic Congo

 

At the swamp and the surrounding area we could also tick Carruther’s Cisticola, Grauer’s Swamp Warbler, Olive, Elliot’s and Fine-banded Woodpecker, Black-billed Turaco, African Hill Babbler, Yellow-eyed Black Flycatcher, Mountain Illadopsis, Mountain Greenbul, Red-faced Woodland Warbler, Grey Cuckooshrike, Chestnut-throated, Collared and Black-throated Apalis, Mountain Yellow Warbler, Stripe-breasted Tit, Mountain, Shelley’s and Yellow-streaked Greenbul, Regal Sunbird and Rwenzori Batis among many other bird species.

 

Because of the steep trail, walking sticks are recommended. The option of borrowing walking sticks and of hiring porters to carry everything other than binoculars and cameras will be available. This all-day excursion will also hopefully give us an opportunity to observe other Albertine Rift endemics such the Grauer’s Rush Warbler, Rwenzori apalis, Rwenzori Batis, Rwenzori double-collared sunbird, Rwenzori turaco, Regal sunbird, Dusky crimsonwing and Stripe-breasted.
