The West-African country tours we offer bundle a rich variety of activities and sights. Worthwhile to visit are the historical castles and forts from colonial times along the coast. Experience the richness of the various ethnic cultures throughout the region, including the Voodoo culture in Benin. The Sahelian style mud-and-pole architecture in the sub-Saharan and semi-desert and the humble thatched huts located in villages throughout the region are also a ‘must see’.
Combine the busy nightlife in the capitals with the idyllic palm lined beaches, or adventurous biking or hiking through the thick tropical forest with waterfalls for refreshing showers. Watch elephants gather around waterholes in the National Nature Reserves. Witness the hippos and many species of birds during a canoe trip through the well preserved habitat along the banks of the rivers and mangrove forests.
