grounds of the Bali Safari Lodge, where Bamenda Apalis has been recorded, particularly on the stretch of road towards Bamenda, check the first 500 m. To get to Bafut-Nguemba, turn east off the N6 18 km south of Bamenda, or 33 km north of Mbouda, drive a further three kilometres before reaching forested gullies amongst Eucalyptus plantation. Although all the specials have been seen here, if you can head straight up to Lake Awing, where most of the target birds are easy. More

Of particular interest is the endemic Bamenda Apalis Apalis bamendae seen along the gallery forests. Mount Cameroon and Mokoko-Onge. Mount Cameroon is a vast volcanic dome that is still active. The lower slopes are forested and are replaced by montane grassland at 2,300 m and volcanic rock and gravel up to the peak at 4,095 m. The avifauna is diverse with some 370 species recorded including montane endemics such as Mount Cameroon Francolin Francolinus camerunensis and Mount Cameroon Speirops Speirops melanocephalus. More
