Gabon Birding Tours

Our Gabon birding tours take us to this great West African nation, which made headlines in 2002 when its national parks rose from zero to thirteen, as more than 10,000 square miles of pristine rainforest was protected to conserve the incredible faunal wealth of this, the largest intact forest bloc on the entire African continent. Due to its small population and vast rainforest resources, Gabon is unique in harboring significant numbers of African rainforest mammals that have either disappeared or are very difficult to see elsewhere. Our Gabon birding tour takes us to Lope and Loango National Parks where we will seek herds of Forest Elephant and Forest Buffalo, sounders of Red River Hogs and a plethora of monkeys. Chances exist for Chimpanzee, Mandrills and West African Manatee. The birding is also exceptional, including such mythical African megas as White-crested Tiger Heron, Congo Serpent Eagle, Hartlaub’s Duck, Vermiculated Fishing Owl, Plumed Guineafowl, Bates’s Nightjar, White-bellied Kingfisher, Black-headed and Rosy Bee-eater, Black-casqued Wattled Hornbill, Lyre-tailed Honeyguide, African River Martin and Black-collared Bulbul.

Our São Tomé & Príncipe extension will take us to these tropical, endemic rich islands, where we will seek out São Tomé Ibis, São Tomé Fiscal, Giant Sunbird, Giant Weaver, São Tomé Grosbeak and many other endemics.

Our Ivindo National Park extension takes us to the fabulous and little-explored Ivindo National Park, where we will search for several very rare and range-restricted species, including African River Martin, Gosling’s Apalis, Sjöstedt’s Barred Owlet, Long-tailed Hawk, Hairy-breasted Barbet, Lyre-tailed Honeyguide, Red-tailed Ant Thrush, Violet-backed Hyliota, Chestnut-bellied (Gabon) Helmetshrike, Gray’s Malimbe and Woodhouse’s Antpecker!
