BISSAU – CONAKRY – OUGADOUGOU – COTONOU – LOME – ACCRA
This tour is offered twice a year in November and January. Let us know your desired departure month by clicking on the learn-more button below: we will match your preferences with the next relevant scheduled group departure. If you are still unsure about your desired departure date, then simply tell us a period or a season of the year and we will provide you a range of scheduled group departures: just pick up yours!
Our scheduled group departures don't suit your plans? If you are travelling with more than 4 friends, you can set your own departure date: we will arrange a bespoke tour just for you for the same price per person advertised below. If you are travelling solo or with less than four companions, we will then organise a slightly more expensive tailored tour according to your time schedule and specific geographical preferences.
Please note: this tour has a strong focus on the Monumental and Architectural Heritage of Red West Africa. If you are more into classic attractions (i.e. traditional villages, natural parks, remote tribes), we can easily design a bespoke itinerary according to your own specific preferences. Get in touch for more details on our tailored routes across and beyond West Africa.
