Ghana is an independent republic with a democratic government, lying on the Gulf of Guinea.
The country has a great system of National Parks and they have just begun to realise the importance of eco-tourism.
What makes the country special for us is the variety of habitats that it encompasses: there is the coastal wetland zone, the dry Sahelian savannah, the Upper Guinea Forest and some pristine broad-leaved Guinea Woodland.
Our 14-day tour gives us the chance to explore these habitats, as well as visiting the famous Kakum canopy walkway.
There will be exciting species here, such as Yellow-headed Picathartes, Congo Serpent Eagle, Black and Blueheaded Bee-eaters, Pel’s Fishing Owl, Standard-winged Nightjar, African Finfoot, Spotted Creeper and Blue Cuckoo-shrike – to name just a few!
The birds of this country will not be the only focus of our attention, as the other fauna and flora are excellent. The sheer number of butterfly species to be found here is outstanding.
Couple this with a colourful backdrop of Ghanaian life and a visit to some of the costal forts made infamous during the slave-trading period and you have the basis for a fascinating holiday.
