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!

Wayne Jones is an exceptional birding guide with his ability to hear, identify, spot and describe the field marks of so many elusive 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.

Markus was an excellent leader and in control the group at all times. Of course he has super-human vision & hearing, but he was also very helpful. And most wonderfully, he gave everyone who wanted a copy of some of his bird photos from the trip. I am not a photographer and this was so wonderful – I have viewed them several times since I returned and I will certainly view them a number of times in the future. The best possible souvenir from the trip!

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.

Andre was excellent ....laid back , loved sharing his knowledge of the country ,encouraged us to try local foods , and his knowledge of the birds in Ghana was amazing . Because of him the trip was a huge success ...
