Itinerary

Welcome to Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. On arrival at Ouagadougou International Airport, you will be met by a Peregrine representative and transferred to your hotel (approximately 20 minutes). There will be a meeting sometime this evening, or first thing tomorrow morning (depending on what time the group arrives), where you’ll meet your Peregrine tour leader and your fellow travelling companions. If you arrive with time to spare, there’s much to soak-in in Ouagadougou (pronounced waga-doo-goo). The surprisingly modern capital of Burkina Faso has a population of approximately 1.5 million and is one of the cultural centres of West Africa. If you feel like a bit of a party then the nightlife in Ouaga (as it’s affectionately known) is famous throughout West Africa, with excellent music, bars and nightclubs and the music goes on all night. Otherwise simply pull up a chair by an outdoor eatery and watch the colourful local scene unfold.
Accommodation
  • Hotel Les Palmiers or similar (1 night)
Meals Included
There are no meals included on this day.
Travel into the green, lush and cooler climes of the west today to the town Bobo-Dioulasso (approximately 5 hours), where you will spend the next two nights. No highlight in Bobo-Dioulasso is greater than its music, with the town known as the Music Capital of Burkina Faso. The country boasts folk music from over 60 different ethnic groups, and this afternoon you’ll visit the music museum to learn about the traditional instruments used by the different groups. There is also a listening area to hear local artists and get in touch with the musical side of Burkinabe life. After dinner this evening you will experience the romance of live Djembe (a goblet shaped drum) music at one of the several local marquees. In Burkina Faso an instrument is about more than the sound it creates – it carries a deep cultural and spiritual significance, and drums are the base of all music in the country.

Bobo’s tree-lined streets give it a calming feel, but at it’s centre lies the busy, bustling Grand Marche, renowned as the crossroads of numerous tribes and an excellent place to experience the colour and atmosphere of a typical city market. It’s filled with everything one could ever think or want to buy, from food and clothing, to household goods and a great selection of tribal arts from all over West Africa. You will also visit a women’s plastic bag recycling project, which combines environmentalism with employment creation. Purses, clothing and dolls are created from plastic yarn that has been spun from the plastic bags that once littered the ground and were a danger to livestock. In the oldest part of the town you’ll visit skilled blacksmiths, potters and weavers using ancestral methods. In the afternoon you’ll be treated to a musical performance, or perhaps visit the Grande Mosque, which is a fine example of Sudanese mud-brick architecture and holds a dark, austere interior.

Today you will take a short drive (approximately 3 hours) to one of Burkina’s prettiest towns – Banfora. This serene, sleepy town is set against lush greens hills of sugarcane, surrounded by waterfalls, small lakes and wonderful natural places to visit. You’ll spend the day visiting the attractions in the surrounding area, including some incredible rock formations. Take a short hike to a narrow three-kilometre chain of sandstone hills – the Sindou Rock Formations. This is a geological wonderland of rock cones stretching towards the sky, shaped and sculpted by the elements. After taking in this stunning moonscape, you’ll continue on to Lake Tengrela, known for being home to more than a hundred hippos. Climb aboard a boat to sail across the tree-fringed lake and search for the wide variety of birdlife and for hippo families, and meet with local fishermen who know exactly where to spot the huge animals. You’ll then make your way though an impressive avenue of mango trees and negotiate a chaotic jumble of rocks to reach the magnificent Karfiguela Waterfalls, another sight that’s worth the journey no matter what the season. Then it’s back to Banfora for the night.

Drive south-east (approximately 3 hours) towards Gaoua, a place of secret rituals, wooden fetishes (objects believed to have supernatural power), and steeped in ancestral significance. It is home to the guarded Lobi people, and is a fascinating and culturally distinctive area known for its unique architecture and age-old traditions. Today will be a full day of sightseeing and regular stops as you drive through the various villages, before finally settling at Gaoua in the late afternoon. On the way you will come into contact with the Lobi; living in these remote rural areas, the Lobi are not used to foreigners, and may feel nervous when you visit. Please refrain from taking any photos here without permission. You will see Lobi homes, made with high brick mud walls and have small slits for windows, not unlike a miniature fortress. Visit the ruins of an actual fortress in Loropéni, a World Heritage site that’s at least 1,000 years old but whose origin remains a mystery. Discover the role of traditional chiefs in modern Africa with a visit to the Gan Kings, and then discover more about the local religion, sacred rights and beliefs by meeting with a traditional ‘fetish’ man.

Reserve de Nazinga was established in 1979 by Canadian brothers. It is home to elephants, monkeys, crocodiles, warthogs, antelopes and plenty of bird life, however, please bear in mind that game parks in West Africa are not comparable to game parks in east and south of africa. The Reserve has rustic huts that are basic but the animals, cold drinks and food makes up for the lack of luxury.

Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch

This morning enjoy a morning game drive in the reserve. You then set off for a full day excursion to the unique village of Teibele, close to the Ghanian border and home to the Kassena people (approximately 1.5 hours). The town is known for its unusual architecture – pottery-like mud houses that are elaborately decorated. Variously square, round, or figure-eight shaped, the houses have stunning intricate ornamentation on the outside, geometric patterns of black diamonds and stripes, illustrations of snakes, crocodiles or perhaps a tortoise, the sacred totem of the royal family. While the men do the building, women are in charge of the painting. The geometric patterns represent the calabash – the multi-use skin of this vegetable is a lifelong kitchen companion for women and is the only object authorised for worship. You will spend several hours exploring the fascinating architecture and culture of the Tiebele compound and its surrounds before returning to Ouagadougou for the night.

Leave Burkina Faso behind today and head to the second country on your West African adventure – Benin. This relatively small, club-shaped country was once home to one of the most powerful empires in West Africa - the Dahomey Kingdom, which lasted for almost 300 years. It’s also considered the traditional home of the voodoo religion. En route to today’s final destination you’ll stop for a picnic lunch and visit to the village of Tintangou, home to the traditionally nomadic Fulani people. Continue on to Natitingou (total driving time approximately 12 hours).

Today travel south to the town of Natitingou (approximately 3 hours), a great base for exploring the tribes, mountains, and wildlife of the surrounding region. En route you’ll make a stop at the most impressive waterfall in the county, Tanougou Falls, surrounded by thick forest and perfect for a refreshing swim in the natural pool at the foot of the falls. Arrive in Natitingou, located 440 metres above sea level and with a pleasant climate found in the Atakora Mountains of northern Benin. Here you’ll head out to visit the remote Betamaribé people, who still hunt with bows and arrows and live in the middle of their cultivated fields rather than in a village environment. Their small, fortress-like houses consist of three levels, built to provide a lookout for potential dangers, such as enemy tribes or dangerous predators. The ground floor is for animals, the first floor for the kitchen and the top floor for living and sleeping. Traditionally, it is said that when a son is ready to build his own home, he will climb to the roof of his parent’s house and shoot an arrow to the spot where he will construct it. Afterwards, you will arrive at your hotel in the early evening in time for dinner.

Today starts with a 5-hour drive to Dassa Zoume. On the way, see how the countryside becomes less green and how the palm trees are replaced with acacias and boabs. When you arrive, embark on a 2-hour hike to visit the altars and shrines of voodoo on the Dassa Hill. Dassa is said to be made up of 41 hills, which is an auspicious number in voodoo. Each hill has its own story and voodoo fetishes, and at the top of your hike you will meet the High Priest and learn about the ceremonies and ritual performed in the area. When your walk is finished, you will then visit one of the most famous churches in Benin – The Grotto of Our Lady of Arigbo – where it is believed that the Virgin Mary appeared. Pope John Paul II visited this church and said a prayer before he passed away. Nowadays the Church is considered to be a place of pilgrimage for thousands of Catholics in West Africa. Spend the night here in Dassa Zoume.

Continue south today (approximately 1-2 hours) to Abomey, the ancient capital of the Dahomey Kingdom. The city is filled with palaces, shrines, altars, and monuments to what was once one of the greatest empires in West Africa. Each successive king built his own palace, usually next to the old one, and the cluster of UNESCO-listed Royal Palaces has been restored. Here you will hear the incredible history of the Fon people, and learn how each king had his own special symbols for reign. One of the palaces is now a museum and here you can see items belonging to the ancient kings and learn about this powerful state, where a perpetual position of war enabled the kings to capture thousands of prisoners and sell them as slaves.
Accommodation
  • Hotel Nifur or similar (1 night)
Included Activities
  • Abomey Royal Palace
  • Geleden Masked Dance
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch

Today you will discover more of the rich cultural heritage of Abomey, starting with a visit to the underground villages of Agongointo-Zougoundo. This once subterranean community consists of a series of around 50 caves dug 10 metres in to the earth and divided into sections that could be used as living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. It’s speculated that these houses were built in the 16th century (during the region of Dakodonou, the second King of Abomey) to protect his warriors and surprise enemies. Tonight you will experience an unforgettable performance of the unique Geleden Masked Dance (Dance Geleden des Fons) by the local Yoroba and Fon people who practise both the Voodoo religion and Christianity. The dance honours the women of the community – living, ancestral and deity. It also involves worship of idols, which are represented on some of the masks used for the dance.

Travel towards the coast with a short drive (approximately 3 hours) to the port of Calavi. From there you will climb aboard a motorized 'pirogue' (dugout canoe, the traditional boat used by west African fishermen). Your destination is the lake village of Ganvie. This floating stilt village of traditional, colourful bamboo houses is one of the most unique communities in Africa, founded by those wanting to escape from the warriors of the Fon. All life here is played out on the water, with markets, bars and churches all floating here. Tonight you’ll be entertained by some traditional music and dancing.

Today continue on in your motorized pirogue to Benin's administrative capital, Porto Novo. Porto Novo is a port on an inlet of the Gulf of Guinea and is Benin's second largest city. Originally developed as a port for the slave trade by the Portugese, the city is full of colonial architecture. From here it’s back on dry land and on to Ouidah (approximately 3 hours) a charming, tranquil town set on a beautiful beach. You’ll spend two nights here, so there’s plenty of time to relax in the shade of the coconut groves after some recent long days of travel. On the way to Ouidah, drive the coastal highway and pass through small villages dotted with white flags that identify Voodoo practitioners. Benin is a country that takes Voodoo very seriously, so much so that it is recognised as an official religion and is practised by over 60% of the population. It all centres around the small town of Ouidah; voodoo is part of everyday life here and Ouidah hosts many voodoo festivals and celebrations throughout the year. The town is like a living encyclopaedia to the historical and cultural heritage of Benin. Here you’ll learn more about this often misunderstood religion.
Accommodation
  • Hotel La Casa Del Papa or similar (1 night)
Meals Included
  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
The town has a fascinating and colourful history, having been an important centre during the slave trade. The Portuguese, English and French all constructed forts here to protect their trading interests, one of which now houses the Ouidah Museum of History museum and gives a unique glimpse into the terror and destruction that the slave trade wreaked on this part of the world. While in Ouidah you’ll walk along the 'Route des Esclaves'; at the start of their journey to the Americas, many of the slaves walked the route from what is now the museum to the Door of No Return, where they had their last image of home. You’ll walk the route in reverse, from the fort to the museum, where you can learn about the slave trade as well as gain an interesting insight into the voodoo history and culture of the area. The Temple of the Sacred Python, where the serpent deity Dangbe has been revered for years, is also an important stop for a voodoo education, a religion that seeks to restore the harmony between humans and the universe though herbal, mineral, animal and spiritual rituals. In your free time, you may also like to visit the new Ouidah Art Museum (Villa Ajavon) or the La Maison Bresil.

Today you will leave Benin behind and cross the border into Togo, one of Africa’s smallest countries. Drive approximately 45 minutes to Lake Togo before continuing by boat to visit Togoville - a historic town renowned for its royal palace and colonial church. It was here that Voodoo practitioners were taken before they were transported to Haiti as slaves. There’s still a strong Voodoo influence in the town today, with plenty of fetish stalls dotted throughout the streets. Continue (approximately 30kms) to Togo's capital, Lomé. This city was once a colony of the British, Germans and French, and is one of the few capitals to sit on a border with another county. This has lead to the development of a unique lifestyle and architecture, a cross between people, trades and cultures. After you arrive you’ll take a city tour, including a visit to the Musée International des Arts and the fetish market at Akodessewa, four kilometres from the town centre. Here you’ll find remarkably eclectic collection of supplies for traditional medicines used by sorcerers including skulls of monkeys, snake skins, warthog teeth, lion skin, leopard skin and dried birds. Not for the feint-hearted! It time permits you will have another short city tour this afternoon, or the following morning before you depart for Ghana and Accra.

Today enter your final country, crossing the border into the English-speaking Ghana (approximately 6 hours, not including time spent at the border). It will certainly be a welcome adjustment after travelling through so many French-speaking countries. Upon arrival you will explore the Ghanaian capital, visiting the National Museum, which is filled with fascinating displays on the country’s history and culture – indigenous arts and crafts, musical instruments, Stone Age artefacts, and an exhibition about the slave trade. Also included is a visit to the site where Ghana’s first president and one of its founding fathers declared independence in 1957. The Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park was erected in memory of both.

Leave Accra and drive inland (approximately 6 hours) to the ‘Garden City’ of Kumasi. This one-time capital of a powerful kingdom is nicknamed for its beautiful flora. The city is the beating heart of Ashanti history and is seen as the home of Ghanaian culture. It’s also a busy, cosmopolitan city, a place where traditions mix with the urbanity of the developing world. According to legend it was in Kumasi that, in order to gain Ashanti independence from a rival state, the Priest Okomfo Anokye called down a Golden Stool (containing the spirit of the people) from Heaven and then drove an irremovable sword into the ground as a symbol of Ashanti unity. On arrival you will visit the Armed Forces Museum in a former fort, built by the British on the ruins of the Asante Fort they had destroyed. The museum tells the story of the many conflicts that have taken place in Ghana, particularly the British-Ashanti wars of the 19th and 20th centuries. The last of these took place because the British Governor of the Gold Coast demanded that he be given the sacred Golden Stool to sit on. You will then continue your tour of the Kumasi area with a visit to a nearby village, where you’ll meet talented artisans who weave Ghana’s beautiful kente cloth, an icon of African cultural heritage around the world.

It was built by the British in 1925 and was home to the Ashanti Kings until 1974. In the museum you will learn about the functions of each room and see artefacts belonging to the kings. Today you'll also experience the unique atmosphere of the Akwasidae Festival. Celebrated every 42 days at the palace, the festival is held to honour Ashanti ancestors, the king, and the Golden Stool. Ashanti chiefs from all over the kingdom, dressed in traditional kente cloth, come to pay their respects. The king attends the festival, meeting his subjects and sub-chiefs in the palace courtyard, and is paraded on an elaborately decorated palanquin accompanied drummers, dancers, and horn blowers. The rest of the day is free for you to spend at your leisure. The city has the largest market in the whole of West Africa, well worth exploring if you have the time.

Leave the Ashanti Kingdom behind and travel south to Axim. En route, you will visit a cocoa plantation. Ghana is the second largest exporter of cocoa in the world, and their beans are held up at the best around. At the plantation you’ll find out more about the history of the bean and its many uses. You’ll then continue on to the coastal town of Axim (total driving time today of approximately 7 hours). You will spend tonight at Ghana’s most isolated and luxurious beach resort. Stay on a palm-covered tropical hillside with kilometres of deserted beaches spread out before you. Close to the accommodation is historic Axim town, where fishing is the main occupation for the 20,000 residents. The town also has several historic places of interest near to the hotel, including Fort St Anthony, built by the Portuguese in 1515 when they were settling the town as a trading port. Also near by, perched on top of a hill in Princess Town is Fort Princess, originally known as Gross Friedrichsburg and built by the Prussians in 1683.

If the waves are right then paddle a board out to surf, or go underneath the water instead with some snorkelling. There’s also fishing for a more relaxed activity. Otherwise, head into the forest for some hiking or bird watching.

Meals Included
  • Breakfast

This morning you’ll get on the road back towards the end of your adventure, with today’s destination as Elmina (approximately 3 hours). In the city you’ll discover the dark history of the slave trade at St George’s Castle. The fortification is one of 20 or so ‘slave castles’ that were built along the shoreline of the Gold Coast – the former name of modern-day Ghana. Built between the 15th and 18th centuries by European trading powers, these castles became the point from which an estimated 12 million Africans were shipped to the Americas. Walk the atmospheric grounds of the castle, past the oppressive dungeons where thousands of slaves were kept while officers lived in light and spacious quarters above, and through to a small door – the ‘Door of No Return’. Here slaves left the fort and were put on to ships; for many the sight across the sea was their final image of home. Continue to explore this busy little fishing town situated on a narrow peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. On the final night of your journey, take a walking tour and discover the Pursubans animist (the traditional religion of Ghana) shrines.

Here, in what was the centre of British administration and capital of the Gold Cost between 1700 and 1877, see the colonial architecture of an easy-going fishing town that is still haunted by the ghosts of the brutal slave trade. When you return to Accra, the rest of the day is free. For those flying out this evening, day rooms have been booked for use at our Accra hotel, where you can freshen up prior to your flight home.
