West Africa

Many views of Western Africa will define your travels here. From the desert of the Sahara in the north to the lush tropical rainforests of the coastal regions, West Africa has an astonishing landscape of breathtaking vistas that sweep across this region.

Made up of an astonishing mix of cultures, languages, history and wildlife, the nations of West Africa promise more than you could imagine and are often ignored except for the few overland travellers. It is a lively and upbeat region of music, dance and good times, the kind of Africa many tourists hope to find.

Western Africa’s wildlife meets the eye if you know where to look, including elephants, primates, big cats, pygmy hippos and some of the world’s best birdwatching in the world. And unlike East or Southern Africa, you’ll likely have whatever you find all to yourself.

As all our itineraries are individually tailor-made, we can create your ideal West African holiday by exploring one country in depth or visiting several countries to gain a true taste of all that the region has to offer.
