Ghana Birding and Nature Tour

Birding and Nature Tour in Ghana

This 21-day Ghana Birding and Nature Tour is specifically designed for keen birders seeking to collect a good Ghana bird list, in addition to enjoying the other wildlife Ghana has to offer. Twelve of the 15 West African Upper Guinea endemic bird species can be found on a Ghanaian birdwatching tour, as well as over 700 other bird species.

Our expert local tour leaders are of international standard, know all the birds by song/call and, most importantly, where to find them. Early starts, night birding and nature walks off the beaten track are the norm when birdwatching in Ghana - these nature tours aim to be enjoyable, productive, expertly organised and professionally led. Having 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, aka Yellow-headed Picathartes, and Egyptian Plover. Their expertise also ensures an abundance of other species that guarantees a spectacular trip for our tour participants.

This birding safari explores coastal lagoons, grassland savannah, Upper Guinea rainforest, broad-leaved Guinea woodland and the Sahel savannah plains in the far north. A trip through Ghana offers thorough coverage of all the core west African birding habitats.

Ashanti’s local tour guides are experts in finding wildlife in this friendly English-speaking country. Although our main focus is on birdwatching, the guides will also introduce guests to a variety of other wildlife, taking time to appreciate all there is to see in this welcoming ex-British colony.

Ghana Birding and Nature Tour highlights include:

  • Shai Hills - Here we spend time looking for the White-crowned Cliff Chat, which is a special sight in this place.
  • Kakum - A visit to the famous Canopy Walkway in search of Congo Serpent Eagle, Violet-backed Hyliota and Brown Nightjar.
  • Ankasa - We spend some time at the forest pools, looking for White-bellied Kingfisher and Hartlaub's Duck.
  • Bonkro - A visit to the nesting site of Yellow-headed Picathartes is a special treat.
  • Mole - Safari drive and birding on foot. White-throated Francolin, Spotted Creeper and Standard-winged Nightjar are some of the highlights. African Savannah Elephants can be seen bathing in the waterholes during the heat of the day.
