Traveling to West Africa
I’m looking to spend the month of March 2020 in Western African countries. I’ve narrowed it down to Ghana, Benin and Togo. I wouldn’t mind visiting other countries such as Senegal and Ivory Coast but then again I don’t want to cram in too much and spend most of my time in transit. Could anyone who travels a lot in Africa recommend the best way to see at least those 3 countries or maybe different ones if it makes more sense?
For instance, should I book a round trip flight that arrives and leaves in Ghana and then fly (or hire a reasonably priced driver take me to) to Benin and then Togo for about a week each?
Or should I arrive in Ghana, then end the trip in Benin or Togo and fly back to the states from there?What makes the best sense economically for someone who isn’t rich but wants to spend time in 2 or 3 African countries? Also if you think that me visiting 3 countries is too ambitious for a month’s time please let me know. If need be I can narrow it down to Ghana and Togo or such. Any input drawn from your experiences would be much appreciated!
