West Africa Travel Guide
Here you can find all practical travel information and photos that we collected during our travel adventures in West Africa. Our overland trip has lead us through Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinee Bissau, Guinee Conakry and Gambia from june till august 2003.
We took a cheap flight to Malaga and from there travelled on by boat, buses and other public transport (taxi brousse) down the African West coast. We hope you will enjoy this travel log of our travels through West-Africa.
At the bottom of this page you can find all practical travel details of this trip from Spain to Guinea Conakry.
