Tema (Accra) A Lisbon

AFRICA Y OCÉANO ÍNDICO crucero de expedición Silver Cloud Expedition

Desde los desiertos del Sáhara a las zonas vinícolas de Marruecos, los contrastes son inmensos. Los países, nobles y con fuerte personalidad, apenas se han visto alterados por el turismo y tienen una apariencia singular dentro de un continente complejo. Con cruceros en zódiac por los manglares, una impresionante avifauna, lugares declarados Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO y excursiones por el desierto, más una noche en El Aaiún (Marruecos), esta aventura africana es mucho más que zocos y sabana.

From a modest fishing port to the biggest in Ghana, Tema’s industrial activity has all but tarnished the charming, postcard scenery of the region. The neighbouring white-sanded beaches remain immaculate, still serving as a testimony of the rich variety of fishing birds that can be found in the area.In the way Mother Nature intended it, gannets, boobies and kingfishers amongst other species fish in and around the cerulean waters of the coast. A light breeze tickles the inflamed, iron-filled soil of the mainland on which the railway linking Tema to Accra lures hundreds of visitors each day.
Ghana's fourth-largest city plays serene beaches against a bustling commercial centre. People from around the world visit the shore, both for its beauty and to enjoy the fresh seafood served right on the sands. Frantic city life awaits a short distance inland, where an economy fuelled by Ghana’s oil industry is most apparent in the maze of vendors at Market Circle.

Three hours south of Yamoussoukro, nestled in between the canals and waterways, lies Abidjan the economic capital of the Ivory Coast. Considered the crossroads of West Africa both economically and culturally, Abidjan benefits from clement temperatures year round, reaching average highs of around 88˚ Fahrenheit, or 30˚ Celsius.

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Tokeh, or Tokeh Town as it is also known, is a coastal resort town that relies mainly on fishing and tourism. Only twenty miles outside Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, this town is nestled in an area of beautiful scenery, surrounded by mountains, forests and beaches. The Tokeh Beach is considered one of the largest and most attractive beaches in West Arica. This town was first founded by a Sherbo fisherman who settled along the river bank. Much later, in 1968, a prominent barrister from Sierra Leone purchased the land, and in partnership with a French company, developed the village.
The coastal neighborhood of Aberdeen, a part of Sierra Leone’s capital Freetown, is located on the tip of the Aberdeen Peninsula. It was established in 1829 to provide accommodation for liberated enslaved Africans who had been left in Freetown by the British Royal Navy. Today, it is a vibrant neighborhood with several up-scale restaurants and hotels. It is also known as a good surf spot.

A British Army captain created Gambia’s capital city in 1816 as a means to stop the European and American slave trade in the area. Barracks were the first residences, but the post grew quickly. Today, the King Fahad Mosque’s twin minarets mark the large city’s skyline. Shopping at the public market is a main attraction. Banjul is also a popular base from which to head out for tropical bird watching trips. Daily life is colorful here. Expect beggars, hagglers and lots of unsolicited hellos from "bumsters," young men who hang around tourists a little too much.

Big, crowded and chaotic, Dakar can seem like a dirty mess not worth the effort, but relax and dig in—this is emerging Africa. The city is progressing quickly as the country develops, and already Dakar is home to many worthy restaurants and thumping nightlife. Historic sights are here, as well as nice beaches. But keep your eyes open, especially at markets, in shopping areas, and at top tourist attractions, where pickpockets, muggers, and hustlers work the streets.

Joal Fadiout is a picturesque village located southeast of Dakar in Senegal. It is an island but is connected to the mainland with a wooden foot bridge. The community living on the Fadiout Island is a mix of Christian and Muslim faiths and live traditional lifestyles based on artesian fishing. The tides are dramatic in this area and on the low tide many people can be seen out on the mangrove mudflats collecting cockles, oysters, murex snails, conch and fishing with seine nets from their pirogues and swimming in the shallows.
Saly is a picturesque seaside resort village on the la Petite Côte (the Little Coast), about 50 miles south of Dakar. It was originally a Portuguese trading post, but over time developed into a resort town after the first resort was built in 1984. Today, its main industry is tourism and there are several modern hotels, tea houses playing traditional Wolof music, restaurants, and shops. Its main attractions are the sandy beaches lined with coconut palm trees, idyllic climate and watersports.

Dakhla is a fishing city located at the tip of a thin peninsula. Apart from modern fishing fleets, simple, rustic boats are clustered together along the shores, while the whitewashed buildings, chaotic streets and fabrics woven in colorful patterns make for interesting images. Historically, this was a stronghold of Berbers and was at one time a Spanish colony named Villa Cisneros. An Old Spanish lighthouse still stands on the outskirts of town as a testament to this segment of the region’s past.
Laayoune is the largest city, and capital, of Western Sahara. It has a population of about 200,000, which is more than half the population of the territory. It is literally a city in the middle of the desert, about 10 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, with nothing else around it for a thousand miles. The name means "the water springs" or “water source”. The Spaniards developed the city in 1938 as the administrative, military, and European centre. In 1940, Spain designated it as the capital of the Spanish Sahara. Since 1976 it has been the capital of the Laâyoune province of Morocco.
Safi’s natural harbor lies on the Atlantic in western Morocco and was once used by the Roman and the Phoenicians. By the 11th century gold, slaves and ivory were the hot commodities being traded between Marrakesh and Guinea. Evolving through the ages to cater to the popular trade of the day, the major industry here today is fishing connected to the country's sardine industry, but there is also an economy based on exported phosphates, textiles and ceramics.

Spread over a string of seven hills north of the Rio Tejo (Tagus River) estuary, Lisbon presents an intriguing variety of faces to those who negotiate its switchback streets. In the oldest neighborhoods, stepped alleys whose street pattern dates back to Moorish times are lined with pastel-color houses decked with laundry; here and there, miradouros (vantage points) afford spectacular river or city views. In the grand 18th-century center, calçada à portuguesa (black-and-white mosaic cobblestone) sidewalks border wide boulevards.

puntos esenciales del viaje

Join us to trace the Gold Coast of Ghana and follow the African coastline northward, stopping in majestic Morocco and ending in the ornate city of Lisbon, Portugal. We will visit more than half a dozen UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the ancient Medina in Marrakech and castles in Ghana that pre-date the African slave trade. You will be amazed to experience dramatic differences in ecology and climate as we go, from lagoon to desert to lush rainforest, and so much in between. This trip is a birdwatcher’s dream, with nearly twenty species to spot as we go including the African Pied Hornbill, the Fork-tailed Drongo and the Greater Flamingo. Visit with chimpanzees at the Tacugama Chimpanzee sanctuary after we visit Western Area Forest Reserve in Freetown. Stand with your back to the desert facing a stunning lagoon in Dakhla. Encounter fascinating local cultures against the backdrop of some of the world’s most breath-taking desert landscapes, and visit vibrant, active markets at nearly every port, but none as spectacular as in Marrakech! Throughout the voyage, learn about the geology, wildlife and botany of this remarkable area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable on board Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

  • Elmina Castle and Cape Coast Castle –See two castles in Ghana, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites,that pre-date the slave trade and have been restored to explain their use and history during slave trade years. Elmina Castle is the oldest European building in existence south of the Sahara, while the Cape Coast Castle was the last stop on the slave trade before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Kakum National Park, Ghana –Walk in the Kakum National Park rainforest and see butterflies, birds, primates and other endangered mammals. Traverse canopy walk (one of only three in Africa), a rope bridge that spans a portion of the tropical rainforest. This park, unlike most in Ghana, was established at the initiative of the local people.

  • Dakar –Visit the small island Goree (UNESCO World Heritage site) and wander its narrow sandy streets accompanied by traditional music. From the 15th to the 19th century this island was held in succession by Portuguese, Dutch, English and French slave traders. As such, visitors will notice the contrast of the elegant slave trader homes alongside the grim slave quarters. 

  • Joal-Fadiouth –See man-made islands where shells serve as both decoration and a construction material. Joal and Fadiouth are linked by a bridge; the latter island is made up almost entirely of clam and cockle shells. Witness traditional fishing techniques, dictated by the rise and fall of the tide, in this artisanal fishing port, and possibly the largest of its kind in West Africa. 

  • Medina of Marrakech –Another UNESCO World Heritage site, visit the ancient Medina, a portion of the old city packed with vendors in their stalls, and the buzzing center of one of the Africa’s busiest cities. See the massive, dazzling array of colorful goods and spices that was founded in 1070 AD and served as a major political, economic and cultural center for centuries to come. 

Cultural Highlights:

Learn the difficult yet important history of the African slave trade.
Experience a unique tea ceremony with members of a nomadic Sahraoui family.

Wildlife Watch List:

Birds of note: Yellow-billed Kite, Little Swift, Common Bulbul, African Pied Hornbill, Fork-tailed Drongo, Village and Yellow-mantled Weaver, Great White Egret, Long-tailed and White-breasted Cormorants, Grey-headed Kingfisher, Western Grey Plantain-eater Yellow-billed Stork, Reef Heron, Hooded Vulture, Common and Sandwich Terns, Greater Flamingo
