Claude Morency After fifteen years on the road worldwide, Claude joined the Adventures Abroad team in 1998. He enjoys challenging destinations with a strong adventure factor. He shows a definite interest in landscapes, wildlife, ecology, arts, traditions and history. International friendship has always been his ultimate travel objective and personal reward. Read More
Chris Tripodi I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another. Read More
Jonathan Hodgson Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Victor Romagnoli I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey. Read More

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
When is the best time to visit West Africa?
Being so close to the equator, temperatures in West Africa don’t vary greatly throughout the year. In terms of the ideal time to visit, it’s best to think of things as being dry or wet, rather than hot or cold.
October to March is a great time to travel here, with drier weather and pleasantly warm days. This is also the best time to see wildlife. However, from the end of November to the middle of March, dusty winds from the Sahara Desert can cause hazy and dry conditions. Be sure to pack lip balm and moisturizer if you’re travelling during this period.
What countries are in West Africa?
West Africa is composed of 16 countries, which together cover an area of over 6 million km2 (over one-fifth of Africa). The geography is a mix of semi-arid terrain, savannas, forests, and the Sahara Desert. The 16 countries in West Africa are Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.
