Discover Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Ghana and Togo.
Visit tropical West Africa, full of idyllic beaches and lush rainforests, as gorgeous as anything on the east coast - but far more secluded. From the exotic jungles of Cameroon all the way to the cultural delights of Accra, this Overland tour covers five welcoming countries. Throughout your African travels, stop in Ghana to spot iconic animals in the famous Kakum National Park, roam the vibrant African cities of Benin and discover Togo's mysterious voodoo culture. There's also plenty of time for simply chilling out under palm trees on some truly remote African beaches. Make the most of the changing landscapes and cultures of West Africa and travel to a truly remote part of the world.
