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. Like much of West Africa, this city has cachet and soul, and enjoys a diversity of cultures, traditions and people, notably through the French influence, but also through the steady stream of tourists that make the city both vibrant and cosmopolitan.

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.
On the shore of the Gulf of Guinea, and wedged in between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mesurado River on the Mesurado Peninsula, Monrovia is Liberia’s capital. Originally started as a settlement for freed slaves repatriated from the United States to West Africa’s Pepper Coast, today Monrovia’s population is a conglomerate of the descendants of the freed slaves (Americo-Liberian) and the various ethnic groups that existed there before the 1822 repatriation or that have moved in since. Monrovia’s harbour is very important for Liberia’s timber and palm oil exports.
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 bustling West African city of Freetown is the capital of Sierra Leone. The lush green coastlines, and the friendly people of Sierra Leone, welcome visitors upon arrival. In addition to long, white sand beaches by the coast, the uplands around Freetown are verdant and home to the Western Area Forest Reserve (accepted by UNESCO as a tentative World Heritage Site). In 1787, British philanthropists founded the ‘Province of Freedom’, which later became Freetown, a British crown colony and the principal base for the suppression of the slave trade.

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.
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.

Porto Novo, the second largest city on Santo Antão, is located in the dry southeast of the island. A dusty wind blows constantly here. You can explore the main street with its former mansions, a little church, markets that have local fish, grogue and fresh goat cheese for sale, shops and-of course-the harbour. At the back of the town is the 2,000m-high Topo de Coroa, which is a fairly easy climb and has magnificent 360-degree views. Around the town, family-owned farms grow fruit and vegetables which are sold at regular markets in the town.

Dakhla is located at the end of a 40km narrow peninsula on the Atlantic Coast about 340 miles south of Laayoune. The area was inhabited by Berbers from North Africa since ancient times but it was Spanish settlers who founded Dakhla in 1884 during the expansion of their empire. The region was especially important not only because of the rich offshore fishing (e.g. cod) but also because of the abundant seals and whales available for hunting. Despite over harvesting that has resulted in severe depletion of the wildlife Dakhali is still a major fishing port.

Agadir is, above all else, a holiday resort, so don't hope for a medina, a souk, or a kasbah (although it does have all three, after a fashion). Think sun, sea, and sand. These are what it does best, as hundreds of thousands of visitors each year can testify.There's no reason to begrudge the city its tourist aspirations. Razed by an earthquake in 1960 that killed 15,000 people in 13 seconds, Agadir had to be entirely rebuilt. Today it's a thoroughly modern city where travelers don't think twice about showing considerable skin, and Moroccans benefit from the growing number of jobs.

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 the Cape Verde Islands, majestic Morocco and ending in the ornate city of Lisbon, Portugal. We will visit several UNESCO World Heritage sites, including 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 volcanoes to lagoon to desert, and so much in between. Visit with chimpanzees at the Tacugama Chimpanzee sanctuary within the Western Area Forest Reserve south of Freetown and stand with your back to the desert facing a stunning lagoon in Dakhla. Encounter a fascinating local culture against the backdrop of one of the world’s most breathtaking desert landscapes, and visit vibrant, active markets. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of this remarkable area from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

Elmina and Cape Coast Castle, Ghana  
See two castles in Ghana, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which 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 the 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, Senegal
Visit the small island Goree (UNESCO World Heritage site) and wander its narrow sandy streets. 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.

Sao Felipe, Fogo, Cape Verde Islands
As the name implies, Fogo (fire) was a fiery place, with the last major eruption taking place in December 2014. Inside the caldera and at Monte Velha one can see the contrast between the green flora and the dark lava. The mountain is quite fertile and has a varied microclimate.

Agadir, Morocco
Agadir’s Oufella Fort was built in 1540. Even though an earthquake destroyed much of this ancient Kasbah, it sits at an amazing vantage point. Inland from Agadir is Taroudant, one of the oldest cities of Morocco located in the Sous valley, between the High and Anti Atlas mountains. Taroudant had been the capital of the Saadians who used it as a base to attack the Portuguese in Agadir. The town prospered through the riches of the Sous plain, marketing goods such as sugar cane, cotton, rice and indigo. Taroudant is fondly called the "Little daughter of Marrakech" and it retains the feel of a small market town on a caravan route, containing nearly the entire city within its walls.

 

Cultural Highlights:

  • Learn the difficult yet important history of the African slave trade.

 

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
  • Mammals: Chimpanzees, velvet monkeys
