Our special 9-day tour of the delightful birding hotspot of Ghana is designed to give us the opportunity to see many of the Upper Guinea Forest specialities. Ghana is an ideal birdwatching destination being a reasonable flight time from the UK/Europe, having great weather, decent accommodation & food, plus many great birds. We visit Kakum National Park and its famous canopy walkway, and the magnificent forest of Ankasa. Special birds we hope to see include Congo Serpent-eagle, Yellow-casqued and Black-casqued Hornbills, Sharpe's Apalis, Blue Cuckoo-shrike and Tit-Hylia, African Piculet, Yellow-throated Cuckoo and West African Batis. And let's not forget the superb Yellow-headed Picathartes to round off an action-packed tour.
Our Israel tour in late November visits at the peak time for many wintering species and is the best period for Asian rarities. Many species from Europe and Asia visit and is certainly a key location for those with a strong interest in West Palearctic birds; Macqueen’s Bustard, Desert (Hume’s) Owl, Nubian Nightjar, Arabian Warbler and Syrian Serin are arguably easier to see in Israel than anywhere else in the region. This exceptionally complete tour incorporates the shores of the Mediterranean, the uplands of the Golan Heights, the remarkable avian spectacles of the Hula Valley, raptors and sandgrouse in the Western Negev, and the bird-rich environs of Eilat.
Ethiopia’s geographical position, where Africa meets Arabia, means that an already rich avifauna is augmented by a wide variety of wintering birds from the western Palearctic and other points further north. This is ‘the roof of Africa’ and this corner of the continent has an amazing diversity of habitats from the highland plateau and Afro-alpine zone of the Bale Mountains, down to mid-elevation woodland, and the more expected and familiar savanna with its numerous lakes set in the Great Rift Valley. Amidst this are some incredible birds such as Arabian Bustard, Harwood's Francolin, Yellow-fronted Parrot, Prince Ruspoli's Turaco, Stresemann's Bushcrow, Sidamo Lark, African Spotted Creeper, and so much more!
Our South India & Andamans tour is set amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in the Indian subcontinent. Beginning in the tropical Andaman Islands we search for the 20 or so endemics including Andaman Crake, Walden's Scops-Owl and Andaman Treepie amongst others. We'll then fly to Kochi to begin our extensive mainland adventure in the stunning forested hills. Our last tour saw 99 endemics overall, which included 46 subcontinent endemics and 34 mainland Indian endemics. Particular favourites included Painted Bush-Quail, White-bellied Minivet, White-bellied Blue Robin, Nilgiri Blue Robin, Black-and-orange Flycatcher, and both Nilgiri and Kerala Laughingthrushes. We stay in surprisingly good lodges/hotels, the food is probably the best in India and the birding is truly outstanding.
