This is our ultimate West Africa trip as it takes us from the western most part of mainland Africa, through to the southern tip of the continent, travelling overland in between. However, do not expect things to follow the itinerary as they may well not. We only run this trip once a year and it is only for really experienced travellers or for folk who are happy to go way out of their comfort zone. It is an amazing journey through some of Africa’s least visited countries.
We divide the journey into three parts. The first part from Dakar through to Freetown, takes you in 23 days through Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau and then into Sierra Leone. The next section of 28 days, cuts back through Guinea, and then explores Ivory Coast and Ghana. Finally we embark on the real expedition stage of the journey, through Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria and into the jungles of Cameroon.
Then heading south out of West Africa, into the beauty of Gabon, a haven of wildlife, forests and beaches and into The Congo, DRC and on into Angola. Angola is the hidden gem for travellers and finally we enter Namibia and on to the Cape.
