Our Trans-Sahara West Africa Expedition will take us to Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea & Ivory Coast
Arrival in Casablanca, Morocco, then scenic drive to Sidi Ifni and on through enigmatic Western Sahara to Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea & Ivory Coast.
You can join this or any other of our expeditions only for a few days (5, 7, 9) - provided there's an airport in the city where you'd like to join/leave us. Great choice for beautiful people with little time😎.
Western Sahara: endless cliffs, thermal oases, deserted beaches, a lot of wind and wide open space.
Mauritania: Atar, UNESCO’s Chinguetti and above all the cool oasis of Terjit and the surroundings. Nice architecture, refreshing gueltas, palm trees and a Saharan swim. Also in Mauritania: West Africa’s most colorful fish market, on the beach about 10 km from Nouakchott; we also smoke a Tunisian water-pipe and enjoy the world’s most stunning beach drive 100 km north of Nouakchott. This is where the Atlantic and the Sahara meet. Gorgeous!
Then 2-3 days through rural Senegal to Guinea.
Guinea: Fantastic hiking on the Fouta Jaloun Plateau. And then the ultra dramatic Trans-Guinea road to Nzerekore via Kissidougou and Macenta. Pure West Africa, Africa at its finest & roughest.
Ivory Coast: Forgotten North of the country, bizarre Yamassoukro's Cathedral, cool beaches near Abidjan.
Price: from 5900€/person for 21 days
For the time being we no longer travel to Mali & Burkina Faso.
