Thank you for recommending the Broadbill Forest Camp in Ruhija. I stayed there for 3 days in early February 2019 and was very pleased. As noted, the view from the tent was spectacular as well as very peaceful. I was surprised by how good the food was, I’m a vegetarian and they provided excellent meals every day, much better than I expected. Emmy Gongo, the owner is an incredible bird guide and I was lucky enough to do several walks with him, seeing both Albertine Rift endemics (including African green broadbill) as well as more common but very beautful species like black- billed turaco and African emerald cuckoo. Finally, I was impressed with the knowledge of natural history exhibited by the rest of the staff. Knowing my interest in the chameleons several people made a point of showing me where they were hiding. Sharon, the waitress/hostess had a degree in natural resource management and was kind enough to spend considerable time talking about the human and natural history of the area as well as her research on the impact of ecotourism on the communities near the national parks.
