Perhaps the least visited of the regions included in this website. It is not that we are not interested, but terrorist, rebel and gang activities – if you can distinguish at all between the three – makes travel rather more complicated. Which is why Democratic Republic of Congo is included, even though I have never been there. We did do an overland journey with a group from Chad to Sierra Leone (excluding Nigeria, for which we didn’t get a visa), and to enjoy the relative comfort of The Gambia. And we’ll probably go back one day, to see more of this region.
This is the West Africa expedition blog, the Chad to, ultimately, Gambia journey.
