Birdwatching Safari Tour in Ghana

This 16-day Birding Safari Tour in Ghana is moderately paced available on request will takes in 12 of the 15 West African Upper Guinea endemic species, making it a must-visit for any birding and nature enthusiast. A Ghana Birding Safari Tour gives you the chance to see 750 different bird species.

With the most developed infrastructure of any West African country, Ghana offers a birding environment that is safe, friendly and hassle-free. Our experienced international standard wildlife guides boast a 100% record of showing visitors the White-necked Rockfowl, also known as the Yellow-headed Picathartes, and the Egyptian Plover. Their expertise ensures an abundance of other species, guaranteeing a spectacular trip for our tour participants.

A trip through Ghana offers thorough coverage of all the core West African birding habitats. Our birding safari travels through coastal lagoons, grassland savannah and Upper Guinea rainforest. We then move northwards through the broad-leaved Guinea woodland and finally touch the Sahel savannah plains in the far north.

This friendly English-speaking country has hundreds of bird species and Ashanti’s local tour guides are experts in finding them. As well as birds, they can introduce you to mammals, butterflies (Ghana has over 1000 species), flora and the culture and history of this welcoming former British colony.

  • Shai Hills - We dedicate some time to look for the White-crowned Cliff Chat, which is special to this place.
