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.
We've cherry picked the 'best bits' of Ghana and its much less visited but just as fascinating neighbours, Togo and Benin, to create what is unquestionably one of the best West Africa trips on the market. There's wildlife including the last population of West African lions in Pendjari National Park! There's culture, from voodoo shines in Mount Klouto, to Ganvie stilt fishermen houses and the two storey houses of the Tammari a.k.a. Somba people. There's relaxation, including both the Benin Grand Popo Atlantic beaches as well as those in Keta, Ghana. If you love the unusual, this trip ticks all the boxes.
Border information: If you are starting in Accra, then you will likely enter Ghana at Accra Kotoka International Airport. Today is an arrival day with a pre departure meeting at 10:00hrs. Your leader will leave a note in reception telling you where this important meeting will take place. Your leader will collect your kitty and check your passport and insurance details at this meeting. The afternoon will be free to explore the city of Accra. Tonight we stay in a comfortable hotel with good facilities.
