Our new, comprehensive Ghana birding tour itinerary affords even more time in the ancient forests of this great West African birding nation. We spend a full day in the gallery forest of Kalakpa, which offers such star species as Puvel’s Illadopsis, Blue-shouldered Robin-Chat, Red-cheeked Wattle-eye, Capuchin Babbler and many more. In addition we spend four full days exploring the wonders of Kakum National Park, as well as birding remote forests in the Brong-Ahafo region where the much sought-after White-necked Rockfowl has recently been rediscovered. We have obtained special permission to visit these colonies located in community-managed forests and our stay will aid in the conservation of these endangered birds. Other forests near Kumasi and Atewa will also be explored on this very exciting Ghana tour.
