What West African Countries Will We Explore?
Our tour will take you across seven different nations along the coast of West Africa. These include Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Ghana. If you are interested in a shorter trip to get your feet wet exploring West Africa, you could also consider our much shorter three-day Ghana Starter Pack tour.
What is a Typical Day like on this Tour?
This nearly month-long tour is packed with busy days of excitement and exploration! Let’s look at day 10 as an example. After enjoying a sumptuous breakfast at the hotel Kadiandoumagne in Ziguinchor, Senegal, we will cross the border into neighboring Guinea-Bissau for a tour of the city of Bissau. We will visit the National Museum and the Military Museum and learn about the rich history of Guinea Bissau. Next, we will visit the Mercado (Central Market) where you can find fold art and handcrafted items in a vibrant atmosphere.
Next, we head to the ‘Centro Artistico Juvenile’, where young people exhibit their artwork and wares. From here we head to the old colonial center of Bissau Velho, Porto Pidjiguiti, the Presidential Palace, and Fortaleza d’Amura barracks. Lastly, we visit the National Arts museum before returning to the hotel where dinner is provided. Then you can relax, sleep soundly, and enjoy the included breakfast in the morning before starting day 11!
While some days are busier than others, this gives you a good idea of what an average day on the tour looks like. For the complete 26-day itinerary, check out the full Unexplored West Africa tour.
