The white-throated mountain babbler (Turdoides gilberti) is a passerine bird in the family Leiothrichidae. It is found in Cameroon and Nigeria. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The white-throated mountain babbler was moved from the genus Kupeornis to Turdoides based on the results of a molecular phylogenetic study published in 2018.[2][3]
