Cameroon is a vast and diverse land; lying just north of the equator, this bird-rich nation forms the inter-grade between West and Central Africa and harbours a wide range of habitats, ranging from steamy lowland rainforest to Sahelian semi-desert. By combining our Rainforest & Rockfowl tour with our Northern Extension you have an unbeatable three-week Cameroon birding tour that visits all of the area’s core ecological zones and provides a thorough coverage of this, West Africa’s richest birding destination. Due to its wealth of habitats, over 900 bird species have been recorded, and 26 endemic or near-endemic species occur, most of which you can expect to see on this tour! If you have a sense of adventure and an interest in the birds of the African continent, then this is a destination you simply cannot afford to miss. We greatly look forward to sharing the avian riches of West Africa with you on this incredible tour!

What our clients say about us

Markus Lilje
GM, Cameroon 2011

A special thanks to you, Markus, you are an excellent guide. Your spotting and identification abilities are astounding to me. Also, you had so many 'crazy' things popping up on that trip [Cameroon 2011] and you handled each magnificently. Right after I got back, I started looking at which future tours you will be leading. I certainly hope to cross paths with you again. Also, tell the staff who handled all my questions and got information to me so quickly... hello and you did a wonderful job. Thanks to all of you.
