Passenger Christian Merk travelled on our #Freetown to #Dakar trip a couple of years ago, and is joining us again next week on our Accra to Freetown trip. We've just been looking at some of his photos from his previous trip and found this fantastic shot of Aminah on a ferry near Telimele, Guinea. We're looking forward to seeing more incredible shots like this on your upcoming trip with us Chris! #Overland #Adventure #Travel #WestAfrica

Our Accra to Ouagadougou trip finished a few days ago, the last of our 3 southbound trips for this season - and as usual it sounds like everybody had a fantastic time travelling through the region with Zoe, Jason and Aminah! Here's a great photo from passenger Knut, taken in the Banfora region in the west of #BurkinaFaso always a favourite stopover on our trips. Zoe and Jason now have a few weeks to catch their breath and turn Aminah around before meeting another bunch of overland travel aficionados for our 3 northbound trips starting in early February! #Overland #Adventure #Travel #WestAfrica

The roads on our route can be a challenge at times - as highlighted in this fantastic photo of Aminah taken by passenger Melanie Smith a few weeks ago. Fortunately the route ahead is much drier now as our #Accra to #Ouagadougou group make their way north! In addition we want to say a huge welcome to Rob, Alasdair, Christine, Mahesh, Kristin, Valeria and Timothy who have all booked onto our northbound trips in recent weeks!

Our current #Freetown to #Accra group are nearly into the final week of their trip, having visited some of the highlights in #IvoryCoast  over the past few days. Here's a lovely photo from passenger Jessica Carmichael who joined us on our Accra to Freetown trip last year, taken as Aminah and the group crossed into Ivory Coast from Burkina Faso. We still have a few seats left on our Accra to Freetown trip starting in February 2017 and there is still enough time to get the necessary visas. Contact us today for an epic 42 day trip through West Africa, visiting Ghana, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

What a fantastic view and superb photo from passenger Alexi O'Brien who joined us on our #Accra to #Freetown trip earlier this year. This shot was taken as our group visited the domes of Fabedougou in the Banfora region of western #BurkinaFaso #WestAfrica a stunning area we spend a few nights visiting. Come join us for the same trip in February 2017! www.overlandingwestafrica.com/accra-to-freetown
