The #Sahara #Desert and an incredible view from the office window! Al, Alice, and Aminah finished the last trip of the season in #Dakar last week and are now well on their way back to the UK. A 7,000-odd Km journey, with a sizeable section of it dominated by views like this! #Overlanding #Adventure #roundtheworldtravel

Ali, Lindsay, and Liz with a stilt dancer as our group spent a couple of nights on the coast in #Casamance #Senegal  last week. A great way to end our #Freetown to #Dakar #Overland #Tour  with some incredible dancing, drumming, and fishing!
