This comprehensive 21-day trip takes in three of West Africa's cultural gems - Ghana, Togo and Benin. Starting from the Ghanaian capital Accra you will head east to the riverside village of Atsiekope - the site of a community tourism project. After crossing the border into Togo you stop at the authentic Ewe village of Davedi, before exploring the Togolese capital Lomé, home to a famous voodoo fetish market. The latter part of the itinerary is based in Benin, the true home of Voodoo and one of the most interesting historical destinations in the region. A tour of Ouidah - one of the most important slave trading ports in Africa, is a sobering experience. You will enjoy a few days exploring the wildlife and landscapes of the north of Benin before looping back to northern Ghana.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
