Guinea-Sierra Leone trip

18-day group tour

We are so excited about our two new destinations, Guinea and Sierra Leone, that we can't wait to share their beauty with you!

Join us on a November 2019 small group tour. Per 4WD we travel through the West of Guinea, including the Fouta Djalon highlands with its stunning sceneries, rock formations and waterfalls. We visit colorful markets and explore the coastal area of Sierra Leone, as well as the Tiwai Island wildlife sanctuary. While the lack of tourism infrastructure can at times come with less comfort, the experiences are making more than up for it!
