Uganda July 2002. Don Roberson 2002

This is the story of our 15-day Uganda trip in July 2002. It is written in diary style with a bit of "he said, she said" scattered here and there. Many specifics for birding the sites described are in Rossouw & Sacchi (1988), a critical book for any successful visit to this beautiful land.  (Nice photos)

General Information

Eight people took part in this trip, which was organised by Simon Wotton, who arranged the itinerary (via e-mail) with Herbert Byaruhanga, the general secretary of the Uganda Bird Guides Club. He acted as our driver and guide for most of our time in Uganda (he had to leave to go to the British Birdwatching Fair for part of our stay), and we also had another guide - Alfred Twinomujuni for all of our stay. Alfred rightly has a very good reputation as one of the country's premier guides. His knowledge of bird identification & calls is superb, and he also has a phenomenal ability to mimic very accurately many bird sounds. He also has an extensive collection of sound-recordings on mini-disc (taken from Chappuis and personal recordings).

Both Herbert and himself were also excellent company throughout.
