This amazing yet challenging adventure includes the highlights of Senegal and the Gambia and explores the region's marvelous wetlands and birdlife, We then plunge into the remarkable but lesser-visited countries of Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, visiting the area's stunning and remote mountains and the phenomenal beaches of the Freetown Peninsular. We will then head east through Guinea's remote forest region, before entering the wonderful country of CÃ´te d'Ivoire and finally following the Atlantic coast of Ghana to its bustling capital of Accra. Unlike their more visited cousins in East Africa, these countries truly are hidden gems that are largely untouched by tourism - every trip through the region is therefore an incredible adventure involving fantastic community interaction, some wonderful wild camps, some difficult roads, and a rare opportunity to experience a more traditional way of life.
