Discover West Africa on an overland adventure from Dakar, Senegal to Accra, Ghana
The quintessential West Africa overland trip, this tour from Dakar to Ghana leaves no cultural, natural or historical stone unturned on its eastbound journey across the continent. 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. From experiencing stunning birdlife and witnessing the last populations of West African lions, to getting involved in a community project in Ghana, this West African adventure takes in the best this part of the continent has to offer. Whether hanging out at the voodoo shrines, walking with butterflies at Mount Klouto or relaxing on the many serene beaches along the coast, West Africa is the ideal destination for travellers wanting a different travel experience.
