Overlanding between Dakar to Accra (including Togo and Benin)

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.
