This trip is ideal for someone who wants to explore the majority of West Africa and is happy to take it slowly. Do not expect it to mirror any trip that you have made to East or Southern Africa, because West Africa is so utterly different and this trip is designed to really show you how. So will you see Africa's big game? Yes, but not to the extent that you would elsewhere. You will get to do and see so much more and without the annoying encumbrances of more tourist conscious destinations. There's forest trekking, village hikes, pirogue trips through swamplands and mountain walks to stunning waterfalls. There's village stays with dancing, music, culture and festivities; stunning beaches, sand and sun; boat trips to stilt villages; wonderful food; local beers and local football; history and culture; laughter and smiles. This is Africa at its rawest without the infrastructure that has been built up elsewhere and it is a privilege to be able to travel through it.
  • Enjoy a fine meal and cool drink in one of Accra's many restaurants
  • Swim in the clean water of the Volta River
  • Guided tour of the impressive Akosombo Dam
  • Enjoy a guided walk around Butterfly Mountain, Mont Kluto
  • Visit the fascinating double storey mud huts in Tata Somba
  • Go on a safari in the Pendjari NP in the far north of Benin
  • Overland through Benin and soak up the local culture
  • Tour around the Dahomey Palace and museum in Abomey
  • Stay overnight in the stilt village of Ganvie
  • Visit the emotional 'Point of no return' in Ouidah
  • Option to walk the Route des Escalves in the footsteps of millions of slaves
  • Relax on the beach with a BBQ at Gran Popo
  • Visit a local village to witness a traditional Voodoo ceremony
  • Take a pirogue across to Togoville for guided tour
  • This is a long and challenging journey, but it is immensely rewarding. Road conditions can be very poor and the going can be slow and this trip is very much about participation. We will be wild camping for much of the time, as well as staying in home stays and some hotels, so do expect to be outside of your comfort zone for some of the time.

The exact experience will depend on what the Trust has a need for at the time, but we could be asked to help to paint a classroom, do a bit of gardening in one of the schools, or simply come and play some games with the children!

    Day 33 Western Cote d'Ivoire

    Over the next 2 days, we will drive through central Cote d'Ivoire and then cross its western border into Guinea. This journey will take us through some very remote areas and some very poor-quality dirt roads, so a great deal of flexibility is needed as our progress will largely be determined by the state of the roads.

    Day 34 Western Cote d'Ivoire

    Today we continue our journey through the wilds of Cote d'Ivoire. It is on days like this when you get to see just how untamed this area is and appreiciate how lucky you are to get a taste of life here.

    Day 38 Faranah

The next 2 days are spent travelling from Guinea over to Sierra Leone through the remote border near Kabala, driving through scenic areas very rarely visited by tourists.  The road conditions in this area can be pretty tough going and unpredictable, and progress can be greatly affected by the weather conditions, so flexibility is very important over these days.

Your leader will collect your kitty and check your passport, visas, and insurance details at this meeting.The afternoon will be free to explore Freetown and it's surroundings.Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Freetown before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Freetown.The fastest and most reliable way to Freetown from the airport is by water-taxi, as Lungi is across a bay from the city. The departure times for the water-taxis are linked to each flight in and out of the airport, so there will be transport available for you when you land. Exit the airport and walk to the right, and you'll see the water-taxi office at the end - you'll have to buy your ticket there for USD40 or EUR35, and check in your large bags. You'll take a minibus for 15 minutes, then the water-taxi for 30 minutes. The boat lands at the jetty, where you hand in your luggage ticket to get your large bags back.The jetty is in the Aberdeen district of Freetown, only a 200m walk from our hotel. Just walk up the hill to the main road - the Raza Guesthouse is slightly further down and on the other side of the road.

    Day 49 Freetown Peninsula

    Today we leave Freetown for the stunning beaches of Freetown Peninsular, where we will spend 2 nights. There are a few different options for which beaches we could choose to visit, our favourites being Bureh Beach at the south of the peninsular and River Number 2 Beach in the western part.

    Day 50 Freetown Peninsula

    We will have a full day for optional activities on the wonderful beaches - we could go fishing, take a boat to explore the Banana Islands, get to know the local communities, and of course relax on the beautiful beaches!

    Day 51 Southern Guinea

    Border information: Exit Sierra Leone at Kindia, enter Guinea at Pamalap. Today we will head north from Freetown Peninsular and cross into Guinea. Our co-driver will leave the truck this evening and take local transport to Conakry in order to obtain Guinea-Bissau visas for the group at the consulate there. The rest of us will continue a short way past the town of Coyah and wild camp en route.

    Day 52 Labe

    Over the next 2 days we will continue our journey north through central Guinea to reach the town of Labé, the gateway to the Fouta Djallon highland region. Our co-driver will catch up with us in Labé, with everybody's Guinea-Bissau visa obtained.

    Day 54 Labe

    From Labé we will set off for an included 2-day excursion to the heart of the Fouta Djallon region of Guinea. On the first day we will travel in 4x4 jeeps through very remote country roads to the small rural community of Aïnguel (approximately a 4 hour drive). After lunch there will be a short 3-hour trek to a waterfall viewpoint and to the nearby 'Pont de Pierre' rock bridge where we have the change to swim in a beautiful natural lagoon. On this night we will stay in a very small and basic community-run guesthouse - please note that if the group is large, some people may need to sleep in tents just outside.

    Day 55 Labe

    On the second day there is a long 8-hour trek through the surrounding hills and villages taking in the incredible scenery. We will stop for a picnic lunch next to a stunning waterfall, where we have the opportunity to swim in the lagoon beneath. In the latter stages of the trek, we hope to be able to get to the base of a much larger and incredibly powerful waterfall, although this is dependent on the ground waters having receded enough after the rainy season to make this route passable. Upon returning after this walk, we will immediately drive back in the 4x4s to Labé to spend the night in our guesthouse there.

    Day 56 Northern Guinea

    From Labé we journey up through the remote hilly areas of northern Guinea on our way towards Guinea-Bissau. The roads on this section are very challenging dirt roads which take us through some incredibly remote areas, and our speed will largely be determined by the state of these roads - although getting to these areas is very special and a great adventure, even more flexibility will be required on these days! We will stop for 2 wild camps en route - the first is likely to be in the highlands before the village of Seriba, the second is likely to be near the border with Guinea-Bissau at Kandika.

    Day 57 Northern Guinea

    Our journey towards Guinea-Bissau continues today. Enjoy driving through small towns and villages where you can see life happening all around you as you head through the country.

In the afternoon we have an included pirogue trip to the mangroves, the 'Shellfish Island' and the 'Island of Birds' - if the weather is good, there are often some stunning sunsets across the delta.
