Trip report: Ghana, Rockfowl and Fufu (Apr 2010) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Ken Behrens.

This trip was extremely successful, netting 463 species, of which only 14 were heard only. This total places this trip among the most successful trips ever run to Ghana by any tour company. All of the ‘marquee’ species mentioned above were seen, along with loads of others. The logistics of the trip went smoothly, and new accommodation options allowed us to travel with even more comfort and maximized birding time. This year, we changed our itinerary to include a visit to Ankassa National Park, a pristine chunk of rain forest near the border with Ivory Coast. Though the birding is challenging, the suite of wonderful birds on offer is more than adequate compensation.
