This trip is an overland trip run in an overland truck. In addition to paying for your trip, you're require to make a separate payment to your tour leader at the start of the trip, usually in USD. Kitties are flexible and change as prices are updated. Therefore you should check the latest kitty amount on this website before you depart.
A kitty is a group fund which covers all accommodation, meals while camping (not in hotels) and activities listed as included. It's a system unique to overlanding to provide the maximum flexibility and best value on the road (you get everything at cost price!). The kitty is your money, not ours, so any amount left over is divided among the group as a refund.Close

Journeys of freedom & discovery. Travelling in purpose-built trucks or 4x4s you’ll see all the highlights but also get far off the beaten track. Led by a professional crew or driver, groups help with the cooking & setting up camp, enjoying a real hands on experience.
Our Basic tours offer superb value and are ideal for those who are happy to forgo some creature comforts in favour of an authentic and fun experience. Under the leadership of a fully trained tour leader, you will enjoy all the highlights and freedom of independent travel with the convenience, security and companionship of a small group.
This epic and challenging trip takes you right the way through some truly off the beaten track destinations. As well as including the highlights of Senegal and Gambia you also delve into the lesser visited countries of Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Cote d'Ivoire. Unlike their more visited neighbours these countries are 'hidden gems' and are still unspoilt by tourism; they boast a huge arts and craft scene, are packed with colourful and vibrant markets and provide the adventurer with a rare opportunity to experience a more traditional way of life. In Ghana you take in the beaches of the Atlantic coast and the stunning Kakum National Park before heading through the Voodoo lands of Togo and Benin before finishing our epic journey in the hustle and bustle of Ghana's capital city Accra.
