I'm traveling through all 54 African countries from 2013 to 2017. Would you like to join me for a segment of the trip?
I'm a TEDx speaker who has written two travel books:
- Hike Your Own HIke: 7 Life Lessons from Backpacking Across America
- The HIdden Europe: What Eastern Europeans Can Teach Us
The book I'm writing now is about Africa, which is where I will be until 2017.
I am happy to guide you or a group for a custom tour in Africa. My car seats 4. If your group is larger, we'll have to rent another car (or squeeze in).
Although I can go anywhere in Africa, to keep your costs low, it's best to fly to whatever country I am near. Otherwise, I will add the cost of a roundtrip ticket to my guiding fee. For example, if you want to go to Morocco, I'll need to fly there. And I won't have a car. So this will raise your price substantially.
Contact me to iron out the timing and details. Here's what regions I will focus on and when:
- 2014: Central Africa
- 2015: Southern Africa
- 2016: East Africa
- 2017: North Africa
I estimate a 1-2 week trip will cost about $5,000 per person. It depends on how much luxury you require and what activities you want to do.
This itinerary covers my travel plans until February next year and covers western and central African countries. You can join in wherever's convenient for you, but please check with me first as the itinerary is tentative and can/will be changed along the way!
Travel Itinerary and Map
Ghana Duration : 11 days
Our journey starts from Accra, Ghana. The name 'Ghana' means warrior king and is derived from the Ghana empire.
Accra is the national capital and the largest city. We spend about a week in this coastal city exploring the city and applying for visas for Nigeria, Togo and Benin (maybe). Some places on our list include the Osu Castle and the Labadi Beach.
After Accra, we slowly make our way up north towards Ghana's biggest lake, Lake Volta stopping along the way (that's why having a car is awesome!). Possible stop could be the Aburi Gardens, Aburi. Lake Volta is the largest reservoir by surface area in the world and the fourth largest by volume.
After our rendezvous around the lake is over, we head further East. Read More
