The tour Gulf Of Guinea To The Cape starts in Accra and ends in Cape Town. This is a trekking trip that takes 85 days. You will travel through Swakopmund, Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park, Accra and 22 other destinations visiting Gabon, Ghana and 8 more countries. This is a guided group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This is a real exploratory journey, which we will only run once a year. No two trips will be the same as this is an ever changing part of Africa and many of the places that we visit are seldom travelled through. To date it has proved an amazingly rewarding experience for the select band of travellers who have joined us; and they are a select band, as you will need to apply directly to join this trip.

So saying, this is an unbelievable journey across some amazing places. Starting in Ghana, we cross Togo and Benin, and then Nigeria. In the south of Nigeria, we cut through jungle roads into tropical Cameroon and then south into Gabon. The splendours of Gabon, its wildlife, forests and beaches are actually second to NONE in Africa. Then the expedition 'hots up', crossing Congo-Brazzaville and the DRC, before entering one of the real gems of African travel, Angola and then on into Namibia and finishing in Cape Town.

For this Gulf of Guinea to the Cape tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
