Adventure holiday operator G Adventure has extended its West African cruise for 2014 and will now call at 16 ports in 14 countries across 32 days.
The voyage will see passengers call in at Morocco, Western Sahara and the Canary Islands amongst others.
Rich Heller, marine product manager for G Adventures said: “We spend our days visiting local communities, villages and markets, engaging with locals and children as they go about their day-to-days lives. Then back on the ship we have historians, a wine sommelier, natural history experts and painters so the learning experience continues at sea.
“When you consider all that’s included, this trip is extraordinary value. We visit 14 countries and Western Sahara in 32 days, so it appeals to those interested in culture, anthropology and geography, and is also a great way for ‘country-counters’ to check off a few hard to-get-to places,” he added.
In total the 2014 West Africa Cruise visits South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Congo, Sao Tome & Principe, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Guinea-Bissau, The Gambia, Senegal, Western Sahara, the Canary Islands and Morocco.
Prices for the 32-day tip start at GBP10,669 based on one person sharing a quad room.
