"In terms of a gratifying birding experience among evergreen Afro-tropical forests, Bwindi to me will always be unbeatable. Sought-after species I enjoyed observing there included Bar-tailed trogon, Black-billed turacou, Kivu ground-thrush; Red-throated alethe, Chapin's flycatcher and Strange weaver. With a checklist of 320 species, of which 23 are Albertine Rift Endemics, twitchers are in for a real treat here."
