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.
  • Immerse in the art and culture of Dakar
  • Explore atmospheric St Louis
  • Visit the stunning grand mosque of Touba
  • Spot exotic birds at Tendeba in Gambia
  • 2 days at the coastal resort of Cap Skirring
  • Overland the rough and tough roads of Guinea
  • Overnight in remote community accommodation
  • Guided 2 day trip to Fouta Djallon
  • Relax on the beaches of Freetown peninsular in Sierra Leone
  • Explore Freetown and visit the National Museum
  • This is a long unpredictable and hard journey; expect the unexpected and embrace it. We will not guarantee the itinerary, the accommodation or even the countries that we will be able to travel through. We will vet all travellers who wish to take part in this expedition.

    Western Trans Africa, Sahel to the Cape

    Day 1 Dakar

    Border information: if you are joining at Dakar, you will most likely enter Senegal at Dakar Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport (IATA code: DKR).Today is an arrival day with a pre departure meeting at 10:00am. Your leader will leave a note in reception telling you where this important meeting will take place. Your leader will collect your kitty and check your passport and insurance details at this meeting.The afternoon will be free to explore the cosmopolitan city and perhaps take an optional trip to the famous Île de Goree.Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Dakar 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 Dakar.

    Day 2 Saint-Louis

    Today we head north through the dry Sahel region to the old colonial city of St. Louis, formerly the capital of French West Africa.

    Day 3 Saint-Louis

    Today we will have a free day to explore the streets of the old city and take an optional trip to the Langue de Barbarie NP or the nearby Djoudj Birdlife Reserve.

    Day 4 Toubakouta

    Today we start our journey south to the small town of Toubakouta, situated close to the Sine-Saloum Delta. On the way we will see the landscape change as we enter the greener wetland region, and we will stop to see the Grand Mosque of Touba, one of the best known mosques in Senegal and most holy site in the Mouride branch of Islam.

    Day 5 Toubakouta

    On our full day in Toubakouta we will have an optional morning pirogue trip to a nearby village to see a slice of rural Senegalese life and to meet their charismatic female chief. 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.

    Day 6 Tendaba

    Border information: Exit Senegal at Karang, enter The Gambia at Fass. Today we will head across the border from Senegal into the small country of The Gambia, then cross the Gambia River on a local transport barge to arrive at the famous Tendaba Camp on the southern shore of the Gambia River. The ferry can be quite a chaotic local experience! Tendaba Camp was the first inland hotel in The Gambia, and is one of the most popular spots in the country for birdwatchers.

    Day 7 Tendaba

    Tendaba is located opposite the Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve, one of the premier birdwatching sites in Africa. On our full day here we will have an included morning boat trip into the wetlands to spot some of the stunning area's wildlife and natural scenery. We will also have an opportunity to take an optional safari drive around the nearby forests of Kiang West NP.

    Day 8 Cap Skirring

    Border information: Exit The Gambia at Soma, enter Senegal at Senoba. Today we will cross the border into the southern Casamance region of Senegal, arriving at the beautiful beaches of Cap Skirring.

    Day 9 Cap Skirring

    We will have 2 full days in Cap Skirring, where there will be good opportunities for optional activities such as swimming, biking, fishing, quad-biking and sun-bathing! While in Cap Skirring, your co-driver will travel to the nearby town of Ziguinchor to obtain Guinea-Bissau visas for the group at the consulate there.

    Day 10 Cap Skirring

    On our final day here we can continue to enjoy the activities on offer, relax and recharge ready for the journey ahead.

    Day 11 Bissau

    Border information: Exit Senegal at Mpack, enter Guinea Bissau at São Domingos. Today we will drive across the border into the very rarely-visited country of Guinea-Bissau, and drive to its capital of Bissau.

    Day 12 Bissau

    Today, we will have time to freely explore the city and the old Portuguese centre of Bissau Velho.

    Day 13 Labe

    Border information: Exit Guinea-Bissau at Kandika, enter Guinea at Kandika. From Bissau we will journey through Guinea-Bissau and into the remote hilly areas of northern Guinea on our way to the town of Labé, the gateway to the stunning Fouta Djallon highland region. 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!

    Day 14 Labe

    We will stop for 2 wild camps en route - the first is likely to be next to the Guinean border at Kandika, the second is likely to be in the highlands past the village of Seriba.

    Day 15 Labe

    Today we continue our drive and find ourselves another stunning wild camp ready to reach Labe tomorrow.

    Day 16 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 17 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 Labe.

    Day 18 Mamou

    Leaving the Fouta Djallon region behind us, we head south through central Guinea to the town of Mamou.

    Day 19 Southern Guinea

    Today we will continue our drive south through Guinea, stopping to wild camp close to the border with Sierra Leone.

    Day 20 Freetown Peninsula

Today we head to the stunning beaches of Freetown Peninsular, where we will spend 2 nights for some well-deserved relaxation after our journey through the tough roads of Guinea. 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 21 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 22 Freetown

    Today we will have a short drive up the western side of the Freetown Peninsular to arrive in the Aberdeen district of the city of Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone.

    Day 23 Freetown

    Border information: if you are joining in Freetown, you will most likely enter Sierra Leone at Freetown Lungi International Airport (IATA code: FNA). There will be an important group meeting at 10:00am at the joining hotel - please look out at the hotel reception for a note from your leader with more details about this important meeting. 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 24 Freetown Peninsula

    Today we leave Freetown for the stunning beaches of Freetown Peninsular, where we will spend 3 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 25 Freetown Peninsula

    We will have 2 full days 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 26 Freetown Peninsula

    Our final day on this beautiful beach we make the most of this time to relax before the journey continues.

    Day 27 Tiwai Island

    Leaving the Freetown Peninsular behind, today we have a full day's drive through Sierra Leone to the Tiwai Island Sanctuary, one of Sierra Leone's largest inland islands.

    Day 28 Tiwai Island

    Today, we will enjoy various nature walks through the web of trails that weave through the Tiwai forest. We'll be in search of the rare and colourful primates that inhabit the sanctuary, and if we're very lucky we may spot a very rare pygmy hippo!

    Day 29 Makeni

    Over the next 2 days we will travel north up through Sierra Leone to the small town of Kabala. Kabala is famous for being an oasis of cool air in the hills of northern Sierra Leone, and for its traditional Ronko-dyed clothes - shirts or gowns made of strips of cloth, typically dyed a rusty reddish-brown using local pigments.

    Day 32 Faranah

    We will arrive at the small Guinean town of Faranah today. 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.

    Day 33 Gueckedou

    Border information: Exit Guinea at Gbakore, enter Côte d'Ivoire at Gbapleu.The next 2 days are spent crossing the border and driving through central Côte d'Ivoire. These days 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 37 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.

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 100 Democratic Republic of the Congo

    We will be passing through a small portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo as we make our way to Angola. Here we have the option of travelling West and visiting Kinshasa or, if it is in our best interests to do so, we can visit the enclave of Cabina, which is part of Angola.We should be able to view the Crystal Mountains range and have the option to climb Mont Mangengenge, a pilgrimage site for local people. You will probably be overtaken by the Congolese praying step by step as they ascend. The DRC is also home to the only Bonobo sanctuary in the world, definitely worth a visit!

    Day 112 Angola

    Our final country with no fixed itinerary is Angola. This is a country that is still making it's way back from years of civil war. Due to this tourists are not seen very regularly, in fact, we may be the first tourists to travel through some villages. We also have the chance to test out our Portuguese here. Close to where we enter the country is Turtle Beach where endangered Olive Ridley Turtles hatch through September to March. The National Museum of Slavery near Lobito is a stark reminder of Angolas past. Other highlights include Kalandula Falls and Quicama NP.
