Trace the West Coast of Africa with Zegrahm Expeditions
Discover Nine Less-Visited African Nations and Give Back at an Amputee Soccer Camp in Sierra Leone
SEATTLE, WA (June 27, 2012) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the leader in small ship cruising and overland adventures, is offering a captivating voyage up the West Coast of Africa. Starting in Douala, Cameroon and ending in Dakar, Senegal, the journey visits nine nations and explores the region’s intriguing cultural heritage, storied history, and numerous natural wonders. 
In addition, a highlight of the trip is a visit to Greatest Goal Ministries (GGM), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Sierra Leone’s war-affected disabled and amputee community. Trip participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a lively soccer match with the amputees.
“Because of the positive feedback we received from guests on our inaugural Tracing the West Coast of Africa expedition in April 2012, we decided to offer the itinerary again in November 2013,” stated Jon Nicholson, President of Zegrahm Expeditions. “Many of our guests said visiting the GGM clinic and watching the soccer match was the highlight of the trip and was truly inspiring.”
Priced from $13,980 per person, the 18-day Tracing the West Coast of Africa expedition also visits historic ports of call, rich in local culture and colonial architecture, as well as pristine natural areas where guests can search for the abundant animal and bird life that call this region home. Highlights include the lush volcanic islands of São Tomé & Príncipe, the vibrant markets in Benin and Togo, and crossing Africa’s only suspended walkway in Kakum National Forest in Ghana. Guests will also visit Abidjan in Ivory Coast, known as the “Paris of West Africa,” as well as the beautiful beaches of Sierra Leone.
