West Africa Overland Adventure Trips In Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Benin, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, Togo, Gambia, Morocco, Mauritania, & Western Sahara
Overlanding West Africa is an independent travel company operating overland adventure trips throughout West Africa. Our unique and innovative trips in the region offer exploratory travel to countries and places that no other overland operators venture to.
Instead of just passing through the region as part of a Trans Africa Tour, or only visiting a few tried and tested countries, we take our time to explore and travel as far off the beaten track as possible.
Our overland adventure trips focus entirely on West Africa and nowhere else, so you can be sure you are getting a trip run by crew who are passionate and entirely focused upon this magical part of the world.
We do not rush through the region like some other overland companies. If you compare our trips to others in West Africa you will see we travel at a slower pace and visit many more places. Unlike some overland tours, we won’t be bumping into other overland trucks every day or sharing campsites with dozens of other tourists. We pride ourselves on true overland adventure travel!
Unspoilt by mass tourism, now is the time to visit West Africa before the region starts to change. There are pristine beaches, colourful and vibrant markets, talented musicians, incredible scenery, larger than life characters, an unrivalled arts and crafts scene, and in many places a chance to experience a traditional way of life and customs that will intrigue even the most experienced traveller.
The style of trips we run echo the more adventurous days of overlanding. We like to bring groups of like-minded people together who share a genuine love of adventure and exploratory overland travel. We’ll be getting to some areas that are rarely, if at all, visited by travellers, so a degree of flexibility will be built in to the trips to allow for the unforseen challenges and opportunities that crop up on the road.
Travelling in these regions can sometimes be tough and unpredictable but we guarantee you’ll be rewarded with some truly unforgettable experiences and memories!
“West Africa is a quite different Africa from the countries on the opposite coast. There, in the more homogenised and gentrified lands of beach and safari holidays, Africa has been partially processed. West Africa is raw Africa. These are travellers’ lands” – The Daily Telegraph
