Birding Africa‘s new trip to Ghana targets one of Africa’s most unusual and desirable birds, the spectacular Yellow-headed Picathartes.

Tour leader Michael Mills will also focus on a variety of forest birds, including several “Upper Guinea” endemics, such as Brown-cheeked Hornbill, Sharpe’s Apalis and Grey-headed Bristlebill.

Birding sites include the Shai Hills, the Cape Coast, the canopy walkway and Aboabo in the Kakum Forest and the Atewa Forest.

This 8 day tour starts on 27 December 2010 and ends on 3 January 2011. A longer 12 day forest birding tour and optional 4 day savanna extension are planned for January 2012. Please click here for the detailed itinerary and practical tour details.
