West Africa

The Expedition Experience

Africa is a continent that pulls at our imagination. It has a rich history of remarkable indigenous cultures, traders, and exploratory expeditions to the so-called Dark Continent. And its political landscape forms an important part of current events. Experience it all as we voyage to nine countries along the western coast, from vibrant markets to the dramatic sweep of its desert dunes, and explore the wild corners of its national parks and reserves. Encounter myriad colorful cultures, too—meet diplomats, local chieftains, and welcoming locals wherever we go. And spend a day in the beautiful Canary Islands before our voyage ends in Morocco’s largest city, Casablanca.
