Uganda – western forest and northern savanna birds - 24 June - 23 July 2011

Published by Stephen Blaber (sblaber AT

Participants: Stephen Blaber, Tessa Blaber



This trip was designed primarily to see the Albertine Rift endemics, other western forest species and a number of savanna and woodland species missing from our list.

Following the recommendations of Phil Edwards, we were fortunate to secure the services of Emmy Gongo ( who, after being supplied with our list of ‘wanted’ species, designed and organized a camping trip to all the relevant places in a very professional way. Emmy is an outstanding birder whose knowledge of Ugandan birds is second to none. The acuity of his eyes and ears never ceased to amaze us, as well as his ability to imitate the calls of most species. The trip team consisted of Emmy (guide and driver), Medard Mugisha (cook & head of camping) and camp assistants Joseph, Kenneth and Luke. We had two vehicles, a Landcruiser station wagon and a 4x4 Hi-Ace van. The camping team would travel ahead of us in the Hi-Ace with all the camping gear, food etc and set up/dismantle camp – leaving Emmy and us to spend the day birding. Camping inside forests and national parks was certainly preferable to staying in hotels/lodges, which are often some distance from the target birding areas, and importantly gave us flexibility to stay or move on as the birding dictated. We only used hotels at the beginning and end of the trip and on one or two other occasions when unavoidable. Overall, the trip was extremely successful and enjoyable with 127 new species and 565 species seen in total.


We flew into and out of Entebbe on the SAA direct flight from Jo’burg which arrives in the evening and leaves early in the morning. We paid Emmy most of the costs of the trip prior to arriving. We just had to pay various additional amounts for increased park fees, tips etc. In all national parks it is mandatory to be accompanied by an armed guard – very necessary, e.g. we came across lions on at least 10 occasions! Emmy usually obtained guards who knew about the birds and they were often very helpful. We found Uganda to be a very safe and friendly place.

(only new species mentioned here, full list at the end)

25 June

After an early start we crossed Waiya Bay on the vehicle ferry and drove to Mabamba Swamp. The road into this RAMSAR site provided us with Ross’s Turaco, Eastern Plantain Eater and Great Blue Turaco, Sooty Chat and Weyn’s Weaver. A boat trip into the papyrus swamp channels soon brought us close to the main target species – Shoebill - after a considerable period watching this icon, we went looking for Papyrus Gonolek, which after some exploration, finally responded to playback, giving excellent views. In the same area we also found quite a number of Blue-breasted Bee-eaters. Leaving Mabamba we headed for Lake Mburo National Park, stopping for lunch near Masaka. Lake Mburo N.P. is mainly thornbush savanna and lakeside vegetation. On the drive in we found Red-faced Barbet, Red-headed Lovebird and Bare-faced Go-away Bird. The camp staff had set up camp in a secluded spot next to the lake, built a fire to dissuade hippos from walking through the camp, and had dinner ready soon after we arrived.

26 June

After an early breakfast we birded the thornbush around the lake, the main targets being Tabora Cisticola, which was soon located and Speckle-breasted Woodpecker, which was not – in fact this Woodpecker was one of the few species we failed to see on the trip! Despite searching we also failed to find Brown-chested Lapwing – they presumably had not arrived yet. On the way out of the park a flock of Yellow-throated Greenbuls at the gate gave us another new species. En route to Kabale we stopped at a papyrus swamp next to the road and searched successfully for White-winged Warbler – a very shy species, but seemingly not uncommon in papyrus. The road from Kabale to Kisoro, over mountains was slow and muddy, with many trucks en route to Rwanda or the Congo, and we arrived in the late afternoon at our camp which was set up near Kisoro, adjacent to Mgahinga National Park.

27 June

All day was spent on the trails in Mgahinga on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes where Uganda, Rwanda and the Cogo meet. We explored both the evergreen forest and the bamboo zone. Birding here was very rewarding with the following new species: Rwenzori Turaco, Rwenzori Batis, Eastern Mountain Greenbul, Rwenzori Hill Babbler, Western Green Tinkerbird, Doherty’s Bushshrike, Dusky Crimsonwing, Black-headed Waxbill, White-eyed Slaty Flycatcher, Rwenzori Double-collared Sunbird, Blue-headed Sunbird, Regal Sunbird and Rwenzori (collared) Apalis. Despite much searching and Emmy’s best efforts we failed to locate the Kivu Ground Thrush – a rare inhabitant of the bamboo zone. Overnight camping again at Kisoro.

28 June

Leaving early we drove back over the mountains, stopping at Byadoro swamp before the turn-off to Ruhija. This swamp is a designated reserve but is being encroached on by agriculture on all sides. Nevertheless, in a light drizzle we located Papyrus yellow warber, Northern Brown-throated Golden Weaver, Papyrus Canary and Black-lored Babbler. Near the turn-off to Ruhija we had good views of Western Citril. We entered the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest at Ndego Gate in the early afternoon. Despite mist and rain the birding en route to Ruhija was excellent. A Handsome Francolin foraged on the road edge, and a feeding flocks gave us Mountain Masked Apalis, Mountain Sooty Boubou, Red-faced Woodland Warbler and Stripe-breasted Tit. Nearer Ruhija after hearing Black-billed Turaco, we stopped again and located the bird. In the same spot a Strange Weaver was nesting and Sharpe’s Starlings were perched on tree tops. Our camp was set up next to the forest on the edge of Ruhija.

29 June

All day was spent walking on the trails to and from the swamp – a total distance of about 16 km, much of it steep. Another bird laden day! The walk down produced Lagden’s Bushshrike, Yellow-eyed Black Flycatcher, Red-throated Alethe, Mountain Illadopsis, Slender-billed Starling and White bellied Crested Flycatcher. Emmy knew the location of a Green Broadbill nest but initially the bird was not to be found. After some searching he found a new nest and the bird appeared, only briefly, but affording good views. Near the swamp we found Oriole Finch and Taped in a Barred Long-tailed Cuckoo, while Cassin’s Hawk Eagle circled over the forest. The target bird at the swamp – Grauer’s Swamp Warbler - was finally coaxed into view on the tops of the reeds. The exhausting uphill walk in the late afternoon was not very productive, although we saw much evidence of Mountain Gorillas. Overnight camping Ruhija.

30 June

After the exertions of the previous day, we confined our activities to the forests around Ruhija and found Grauer’s Warbler (very cryptic!), Little Green Sunbird and Yellow-crowned Canary. Other non-new birds around our camp included Luhder’s Bushshrike and Yellow-bellied Waxbill. In the late afternoon we drove out on the road towards the ‘Neck’ to await nightfall and to look for the Rwenzori Nightjar. Soon after dark it responded to the tape and gave us excellent views.

1 July

All morning was spent birding the ‘Neck’ on the way to Buhoma. At the spot near where we saw the nightjar, Emmy located a pair of Dusky Twinspots. Further on, after stopping to tow our support vehicle out of the mud, we had some good birding at the ‘Neck’. New species in the forest were Elliott’s Woodpecker, Grey Apalis, Black-faced Rufous Warbler and Grey-headed Sunbird, while the tree tops yielded Sooty Flycatcher, Narrow-tailed Starling and Purple-headed Glossy Starling. Close to a bridge Cassin’s Flycatcher hawked from the rocks in the stream. Overnight camp at Buhoma.

2 July

This was our gorilla trekking day which went off successfully, but left little time for birding.

3 July

All day birding the trails in Buhoma Forest. Another excellent day, mostly along the main trail that leads to the Rwandan border. Along this path we found Scaly-breasted Illadopsis, Sooty Boubou, Dusky long-tailed Cuckoo, White-bellied Robin-Chat, African Shrike Flycatcher and Red-fronted Antpecker. On a loop trail down to the stream Neumann’s (Short-tailed) Warbler couldn’t resist Emmy’s imitations and gave us close views and a Willcock’s Honeyguide was seen.

4 July

All day driving to Queen Elizabeth National Park via the Ishasha road where we had close views of the tree-climbing lions. New birds included Marsh Tchagra, Fawn-breasted Waxbill and Brown-backed Scrub-Robin. Our camp was just outside the northern edge of the park.

5 July

The morning was spent on a long loop drive east of the main tar road in QEP. Quite a variety of species but nothing new. The afternoon was spent on a tourist river cruise, primarily to see African Skimmer, of which hundreds were seen up close on sandbanks in the Kazinga Channel.

6 July

The morning was spent driving to Kibale N.P. En route we picked up Black Bishop near Kasese. Birded our way through Kibale on the main road in the afternoon, nothing new, and reached our campsite at Bigodi just outside the park.

7 July

Left camp very early so as to arrive in Kibale before light in order to wait for the display of the Green-breasted Pitta. Despite hearing the display flight we unfortunately could not find the bird. Continued birding through the morning and picked up Fire-crested Alethe, Brown-eared Woodpecker, Toro Olive Bulbul and has good views of Red-chested Owlet. We also came across a large group of very noisy chimpanzees. Late in the afternoon we drove out through the tea estates to the northern section of the park which straddles the main tar road to Kampala. The road is a bit busy but we had good views of Bocage’s Bushshrike and Masked Apalis. No Olivebacks though. Overnight at Bigodi.

8 July

Another early start to look for the Green-breasted Pitta. The expertise of Emmy and the ranger allowed us to follow a bird for nearly two hours and we were rewarded with excellent views, including it displaying. While following the Pitta, we saw Red-tailed Ant-thrush, Blue-shouldered Robin-Chat and Rufous Flycatcher-Thrush. Overnight again at Bigodii.

9 July

All day driving to Semliki Forest via Fort Portal. The road over the Rwenzoris was very rough and slow. Spectacular views to the west across Semliki Forest and the river which forms the border with the Congo. Arrived late afternoon at the Bumaga Campsite in the Semliki Forest NP.

10 July

All day birding the main trail in Semliki. This reserve is well-known for isolated records of many species usually only found further west and it is the only site in Uganda for a number of more common species. Our 11 km walk took us close to the river through a variety of forest types. New species included Xavier’s Greenbul, Yellow-throated Nicator, Eastern Bearded Greenbul, Lesser Bristlebill, White-throated Greenbul and Yellow-throated Cuckoo. In the evening we went to the palm area near the hot springs to look for Nkulengu Rail. On dusk we glimpsed the tail-end of a bird flying from the reed swamp into the palm forest and it began calling in an inaccessible area after dark. Unfortunately not a good enough view to count as a sighting! Overnight Bumaga.

11 July

Left Bumaga and birded the old Semliki road (eastern side) and were lucky enough to find Brown Twinspot in secondary growth near the road. After lunch we visited the Semliki Wildlife Reserve and located Black-billed Barbet and Green-backed Eremomela. Our Landcruiser had developed some problems, probably as a result of the shaking on the Semliki road so we stopped in Fort Portal and Emmy took it to a garage while we waited at the comfortable Garden Restaurant. Because of the time needed to fix the vehicle we stayed the night near Fort Portal at the Tooro Resort Hotel. A lucky choice of hotel because Emmy heard Black-shouldered Nightjar in the evening and we had excellent views of it in the garden.

12 July

After an early start we birded the tar road running through Kibale NP, the same place as on 7 July, lots of birds but found nothing new. We arrived in the late afternoon at Budongo Forest where our camp was set up in the forest at Busangiro.

13 July

Today was devoted to birding the Royal Mile in Budongo Forest, a short drive from our camp. This site lived up to its reputation and we had good views of White-thighed Hornbill, Nahan’s Francolin, Rufous-crowned Eremomela, Jameson’s Wattle-eye, Yellow-crested Woodpecker and Yellow Longbill.

14 July

Early morning spent near Busangiro searching the tree tops for Ituri Batis – finally rewarded with good views. Thereafter we drove to Murchison Falls NP via the road near Lake Albert, passing over the escarpment and through Bugungu Wildlife Reserve. A species in the savanna on the escarpment was Foxy Cisticola, and in Bugungu, Abyssinian Ground Hornbill. Near Buliisa we picked up White-rumped Seedeater just outside town. After registering into Murchison Falls NP and crossing the ferry over the Victoria Nile we picked up our pre-arranged ranger (George) and drove to a hidden campsite set up by Medard near the delta on the Albert Nile. This was a beautiful place surrounded by large trees and adjacent to the delta, with animals all around! On the drive in we saw Heuglin’s Francolin.

15 July

All day birding the park. At the campsite George quickly located Red-winged Grey Warbler, after which we drove back to the area around the ferry, picking up White-fronted Black Chat and Shelley’s Rufous Sparrow along the road. We then walked through the bush below the lodge where we had good views of White-crested Turaco.

Returning along the road we stopped along a ridge and searched successfully for Brown-rumped Bunting. Back at camp we were treated to Northern Carmine Bee-eaters feeding over the water. On dusk we set out for the airfield where Emmy negotiated permission for us to drive up and down to look for nightjars. This was successful and we had spectacular views of a number of Pennant-winged Nightjars. After leaving the airstrip, with a full moon, we had close-up views of a leopard on the road and nearer the campsite, on the floodplain, there were large numbers of nightjars. Slender-tailed Nightjar and Plain Nightjar were new for us, but Swamp (Natal) Nightjar and Long-tailed were also identified.

16 July

Birded our way out to the northern gate of Murchison NP. Stopped for provisions at Pakwach. The support vehicle had tyre problems delaying us for a while so that we could only get as far as Gulu where we stopped at the Acholi Hotel overnight.

17 July

Driving to Kidepo Valley NP in the NE corner of the country. Stopped for lunch at a hotel in Kitgum. En route we were lucky enough to find a pair of Black-breasted Barbets. A very long drive, entering the park in the late afternoon and quickly spotting Clapperton’s Francolin, common in the park. We only reached our camp in the park after dark in a thunderstorm. Lions were very evident around our camp and woke us up throughout the night, being close to the tent.

18 July

The first part of the morning was spent at the UWA workshops getting a puncture repaired. Thereafter we set out with our pre-arranged ranger (Bernard)to a site just outside the southern entrance where Fox Kestrel occurs on the cliffs of an isolated butte. Searching the cliff tops with the scope we finally located a Fox Kestrel and had good views after it flew closer and settled lower down. In the thornbush at the base of the cliffs we also found Red-pate Cisticola. The rest of the day was spent in the southern part of the park but no more new birds.

19 July

All day trip to the northern borders of the park along the Sudan border. This trip cannot be undertaken lightly as rainfall on the mountains along the border causes flash flooding of the Kidepo River and it is easy to be trapped north of the river. This had happened to Emmy previously. So we kept an eye on the weather! North of the river we easily found White-billed Buffalo Weaver and eventually located a pair of Karamoja Apalis. As the afternoon rain arrived we just made it back across the river with 4WD

20 July

Long drive south to Lake Bisina near Soroti. Just outside Kidepo we saw the Emin’s subspecies of Baglafecht’s Weaver. Between Lira and Soroti we found Hartlaub’s Marsh Widowbird in the extensive papyrus swamps along the main road. Arriving after dark, we got lost in the maze of tracks around Lake Bisina and did not arrive at the camp set up by Medard and co. until about 8 pm.

21 July

Hired a boatman to take us out on Lake Bisina (a RAMSAR site) where the target bird was Fox’s Weaver. Only towards the end of the morning was a pair located on the north side of the lake. After some discussions with the boatmen who wanted to charge us the equivalent of about $130 for the small leaky boat (settled for about $80), we set out southwards. The support vehicle developed a serious engine overheating problem and the camp crew had to be left behind near Mbale while we went on to stop the night in Jinja (Hotel Nile Anchor Palace). We had planned to camp at Mabira Forest between Jinja and Kampala. The support vehicle could not be fixed quickly and regrettably we did not see our camp team again.

22 July

Birded Mabira Forest in the morning. Nothing new but good views of White-spotted Flufftail and Forest Robin. The forest is being badly affected by lots of illegal logging.
Drove on after lunch at the Forest HQ and arrived at Central Inn, Entebbe at about 4pm.

23 July

Departed Entebbe on SAA for Jo’burg at 0725 am.
