Embark on an adventure from Sierra Leone through to Guinea, Guinea Bissau, The Gambia and Senegal.
Discover rarely-visited gems on this West Africa overland trip from Freetown to Dakar. Very much off-the-beaten-track, this is a fairly physically demanding tour that involves a lot of camping, hiking and trekking – though the bulk of it is undertaken in a comfortable overland truck. This is grassroots travelling at its very best, where you can really get involved in the communities and local people you meet along the way. Whether appreciating the breadth of stunning birdlife or relaxing on the many serene beaches along the coast, West Africa is the ideal destination for travellers wanting a different travel experience.
