Walking In West Africa

This adventure takes us to the pristine rainforest of Ghana to discover its lush vegetation and varied wildlife, such as the Mona monkeys and hundreds of species of colourful butterflies. We walk on the longest and highest suspended canopy bridge in the world, hike to the tops of waterfalls and meet local people living in the nearby villages farming cocoa and palm oil. In Togo the landscape becomes dry and rocky, and the verdant forest is replaced by baobabs and palm trees. Walking from village to village, we discover the remote Atakora Mountains where people live in fortified dwellings made of mud, similar to medieval castles. We also visit colourful markets, make our own glass beads and witness a traditional fire dance.
