Overview

For our Ghana Budget birding tour we have cherry-picked the very best and most accessible birding sites of this fantastic country and packaged this in a shorter and more cost effective offering. This tour is primarily focused on Ghana’s incredible forests which include the famous Kakum canopy walkway, vast Ankasa Forest and the unique Atewa range. One of the major highlights will be seeing the incredible White-necked Rockfowl and the tour will also target many of Ghana’s most special species, including the likes of Congo Serpent Eagle, Long-tailed Hawk, Akun Eagle-Owl, Blue-moustached, Rosy and Black Bee-eaters, Fire-bellied Woodpecker, White-crested and Black Dwarf Hornbills, Rufous-sided Broadbill, Buff-throated Sunbird and a plethora of superb Upper Guinea Forest endemics!

Andre proved to be an excellent lead guide and was very well supported by Mark. They had a very good knowledge of the birds of Ghana and knew where to look for them and how to locate them. They got on well and provided us with excellent company. We were very pleased with our bird list, with many rare and highly desirable species. The Picathartes was the major reason we went to Ghana and was, for us, the highlight of the trip and the views were superb.

I loved this tour, Andre was outstanding, very knowledgeable and eager to get everyone on the birds.

The tour was well planned and well paced. The Tour Leader Stephan and Local Guide were both excellent, and worked well as a team. Indeed they were the icing on the cake as to making the tour so good.

Mr. Nigel Redman's knowledge of the birds, mammals, and other wildlife was extraordinary. His enthusiasm was contagious, and his pleasant demeanor was a joy to be around. He also was great at looking after the participants' "creature" comforts. I would consider it a privilege to travel someday again with him.
