The tour Tribal Lands Of West Africa starts from Dakar and ends in Greater Accra Region. This is an adventure tour that takes 50 days. You will travel through Elmina, Accra, Kakum National Park and 20 other destinations visiting sierra leone, Ivory Coast and 3 more countries. This is a guided group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport and others.

This is a quintessential West Africa overland taking in some really off the beaten track destinations.

The trip revolves around the tribal lands and cultures of numerous different peoples, with a variety of village stays, walks and treks as well as some great local cultural experiences.

The roads are often poor and the going can be slow, but the scenery is stunning. Some of our time will be spent exploring by boat, such as local pirogues or local barges, some on foot, some on the truck. Expect spectacular waterfalls, languid lagoons, mangrove swamps, beautiful Atlantic beaches and historic towns and settlements; as well as wildlife and some great nature walks.

The trip is split into two sections; heading south we will first be travelling through Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau and Sierra Leone to the city of Freetown. The next section, takes us back into Guinea and then into Ivory Coast finally arriving at Accra in Ghana.

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.
