West Africa comprises 15 countries. Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Benin, Togo, Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Burkina-Faso make up the region.
Within each of these countries it is possible to find up to 10 ethnic groups, all speaking different languages, and with slightly different ways of interpreting their environment through belief systems and cultural heritage.
Moreover, West Africa's topography and climate change dramatically from North to South allowing for magnificent deserts and lush tropical rainforests to exist within the same region. Needless to say that West Africa is extremely rich in terms of cultural, natural and historical heritage.
The majority of West African societies are community based, with strong family units that work together to farm, fish or hunt for livelihoods or sustenance.
We believe that tourism can create additional livelihood possibilities for communities across the region whilst respecting cultural and natural heritage. By tapping into the fascinating daily activities of communities and the unique topography, travel experiences can be efficiently delivered both responsibly and with sustainability for both hosts and guests alike.
