BIRDWATCHING

IN CAMEROON

With towering peaks, rolling hills, dry sahel habitat and primary forest, Cameroon is awash with some of Africa’s most sought-after regional endemics. The Cameroon Highlands is one of Africa’s most endemic-rich areas, and we visit three of these amazing peaks — some still have active volcanoes. Bannerman’s Turaco, one of the most range restricted turacos in Africa, can be found in the Bamenda Highlands. Grey-necked Rockfowl (Red-headed Picathartes), a skulking forest species with only one other member in its family, is endemic to this region’s lowland forests, and this is one of the few places you can pick up all three species of African trogons.

With Quail-plover, Egyptian Plover, and Golden Nightjar possible in the dry north, there are opportunities to see a wide range of some of Africa’s most desired birds.
