Burkina Faso
Landlocked country that is very off the beaten path for visitors.
Cape Verde
Tiny Atlantic island group off the coast of Senegal with wonderful beaches.
Côte d'Ivoire
Formerly something of a jewel in the West African crown, this nation has taken huge steps backwards due to recent political driven conflict.
Tiny coastal nation popular with European beach package tourists and birdwatchers.
So-called "Africa for Beginners"—West Africa's richest, most-English speaking country, with highly varied landscapes, a few off-the-beaten-path beach getaways, and the solemn, imposing slave castles of the coast west of Accra.
Some great hill scenery (the Switzerland of Africa), major rainforests and Atlantic beaches, ravaged by decades of political turmoil and lawlessness.
A former Portuguese colony which has been through lots of struggle since independence and is little visited by travellers.
Settled by former African American slaves in the 19th Century, this country has been through murderous conflicts, and it is too dangerous to visit outside Monrovia.
A vast, dangerous, chaotic, overpopulated, and always fascinating country, with great wealth—little of it shared with its people.

  • Cotonou — Benin's big non-capital has the feel of a West African, urban version of the Wild West; you can buy anything at a city that is essentially an enormous, lawless (but reasonably safe) market town, and dirt cheap "Rolexes" of questionable origin and voodoo charms remain popular items for travellers
  • Dakar — the capital of Senegal and the westernmost city in Africa
  • Lagos — the largest city in Nigeria and the second largest in the whole of Africa is a city bursting with energy. With over 15 million inhabitants, it is considered to be like the New York of Africa where you can find anything you are looking for
  • Lomé — Togo's bustling capital, somewhat unfairly disliked by travellers, and possibly the moto-taxi capital of the world.
