Sahara, Dogons & Timbuktu - Overland Trip

3 weeks: Accra to Bamako (KU-AFWA5R)

This a true taste of West Africa. Explore the slave forts and castles on the Slave Coast, walk though the tree tops on the canopy walk in the rainforest of Kakum National Park, and journey through the sands of the Sahara with the Tuareg. See animals on a guided walk in Mole National Park, and discover the amazing world of the Dogon People in Mali. Enjoy chilled out days on the boat trip to Timbuktu, and marvel at the frenetic dancing of the local cultural group on the beach in Ghana. From the sand dunes of the Sahara to the beaches on the Atlantic coast, this is a tour of great diversity, this tour gives you a real insight into the complexity and friendliness of West African society.
