18 Day West Africa Grand Journey
Culture, nature and history is the theme of this Grand Journey through West Africa. The main highlights of these uniqe areas are: the Isle of Goree and the salt gatherers at the unusual Lac Rose in Senegal, the slave castles at Cape Coast in Ghana, fetish markets in Togo and Ouidah, the birthplace of Voodoo in Benin. On the Isle of Goree you will learn about the turbulent past as you walk through the Maison des esclaves (house of slaves). You’ll speak to salt harvesters at the Pink Lake and learn about the techniques of extracting salt. You’ll also explore the streets and markets of Bamako with your local guide. Then continue on to Ghana, Togo, and Benin where you’ll explore historic slave castles, learn about ancient kingdoms, cultures, voodoo and more. Finish by visiting a local village for your own naming ceremony where you’ll receive your traditional Ghanaian name. Return to Accra for some final souvenir shopping and sight seeing before flying home from this unforgettable adventure! Includes internal transfers, accommodations, and meals as listed.
