This epic and challenging trip takes you right the way through some truly off the beaten track destinations. We take in the highlights of Senegal and the Gambia and explore the region’s marvellous wetlands and birdlife. We then plunge into the remarkable but lesser-visited countries of Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, visiting the area’s stunning and remote mountains and the phenomenal beaches of the Freetown Peninsular. We will then head east through Guinea’s remote forest region, before entering the wonderful country of CÔte d’Ivoire and following the Atlantic coast of Ghana to its bustling capital of€cra. We then continue on to the unique and fascinating lands of Togo and Benin, two countries packed full of history, voodoo culture and stunning scenery. Unlike their more visited cousins in East Africa, these countries truly are hidden gems that are largely untouched by tourism - every trip through the region is therefore an incredible adventure involving fantastic community interaction, some wonderful wild camps, some difficult roads, and a rare opportunity to experience a more traditional way of life. West Africa boasts a huge arts and craft scene, colourful and vibrant markets, and incredible traditional music - however, what makes West Africa especially wonderful are the people - the fascinating cultures, incredible atmosphere, and warm friendly smiles that greet you every day are what makes a trip here so very special, and why the area is frequently on the top of the favourites list for many of our most seasoned travellers. Join us for this incredible adventure!
