Day 1 - Tema

Arrive: Tue 05 April 2022

The largest seaport in Ghana, Tema boasts an inner and outer fishing harbor, the former known as the Canoe Basin and built to encourage the local fishing practice; the latter designed for the commercial fishing industry. But some of the most fascinating sites are located further along the coastline, where you’ll find UNESCO-listed forts and castles remaining from the Portuguese trade between the 15th and 18th centuries.

Day 2 - Tema

Depart: Wed 06 April 2022

The largest seaport in Ghana, Tema boasts an inner and outer fishing harbor, the former known as the Canoe Basin and built to encourage the local fishing practice; the latter designed for the commercial fishing industry. But some of the most fascinating sites are located further along the coastline, where you’ll find UNESCO-listed forts and castles remaining from the Portuguese trade between the 15th and 18th centuries.

Day 3 - Takoradi

Arrive: Thu 07 April 2022 at 07:00 / Depart: Thu 07 April 2022 at 19:00

The Kakum National Park is an astounding virgin rainforest habitat for hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, mammals and fauna, and your visit to the deep-sea port of Takoradi – or Taadi – can lead you there. Exploring this natural heaven is its own adventure, as you traverse suspension bridges strung from treetops nearly 100 feet high, though the sights (and sounds) of the resident animals will keep you looking outward rather than down.

Day 4 - Abidjan

Arrive: Fri 08 April 2022 at 07:00 / Depart: Fri 08 April 2022 at 19:00

Along stunning beaches, palm trees stretch to the heavens, while inland, it’s modern marvels that scrape the sky. More balance than contrast, Abidjan is a tropical paradise that is embracing economic progress and modernization, and at the same time preserving the natural treasures at its core. The Parc National de Taï is a wildlife haven of lush trees, and the UNESCO-listed Historic Town of Grand-Bassam, the first capital of the Côte d'Ivoire, is a delightful colonial throwback

Day 5 - Atlantic Ocean Cruising

Day 6 - Monrovia

Arrive: Sun 10 April 2022 at 07:00 / Depart: Sun 10 April 2022 at 18:00

Monrovia has had several identities over its approximately two centuries on the modern map, from a coastal town caught in the crossfire of war and settlement for emancipated slaves to a party haven and land of opportunity for entrepreneurs. Today, the Liberian capital is a blend of its past and present, with a bright future. The Liberian National Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into all phases of Monrovia and the country, connecting points of history – and people – to the proud culture.

Day 7 - Freetown

Arrive: Mon 11 April 2022 at 08:00 / Depart: Mon 11 April 2022 at 19:00

Founded in 1792 as a haven for free-born and freed American slaves, Freetown is now a diverse mixture of international cultures. The town is a thriving harbor city built around a historic cotton tree, which symbolizes emancipation and can be used as a kind of GPS to orient oneself to Freetown’s main attractions. The Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary outside of town represents another part of the region’s spirit, connecting people with the forests and the animals who live there.

Day 8 - Tokeh

Day 9 - Atlantic Ocean Cruising

Day 10 - Banjul

Arrive: Thu 14 April 2022 at 07:00 / Depart: Thu 14 April 2022 at 19:00

Tucked on beach-fringed St. Mary's Island, where the mouth of the Gambia River meets the Atlantic, is Banjul, Gambia's tiny capital city. Banjul is the country's commercial and transportation hub, though it retains a rustic charm. For a taste of local life, browse the Albert Market, lined with colorful craft stalls, or visit the Gambia National Museum, home to historical and cultural artifacts. Also worth a look is the Makasutu Culture Forest and its wildlife-rich mangrove wetlands.

Day 11 - Dakar

Arrive: Fri 15 April 2022

Take a look into the city known as "West Africa’s Window to the Western World," where architectural vestiges of its French rule are still on display, and peaceful islands beckon offshore of beautiful beaches. Dakar’s once tumultuous past is now revived with a brimming cultural scene, full of diverse markets and art galleries.

Day 12 - Dakar

Depart: Sat 16 April 2022

Take a look into the city known as "West Africa’s Window to the Western World," where architectural vestiges of its French rule are still on display, and peaceful islands beckon offshore of beautiful beaches. Dakar’s once tumultuous past is now revived with a brimming cultural scene, full of diverse markets and art galleries.
