G Adventures extends West Africa cruise for 2014

- Longer itinerary takes guests to 16 ports of call from South to North Africa –

G Adventures has extended the itinerary for its 2014 voyage up the coast of West Africa onboard its expedition vessel MS Expedition. Passengers will now journey for 32 days to 16 ports in 14 countries, including the new ports of Dakhla in Western Sahara, Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands and Agadir (for Marrakech) in Morocco.

The West Africa itinerary operated for the first time in April this year and its success has led to G Adventures extending the trip and selling it as a single adventure cruising itinerary, whereas previously it had been broken in two sectors.

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.

Highlights from last year’s itinerary include visiting some of the most remote communities in Africa in Benin, Togo, Angola and Sierra Leone. Travellers will see the famous coffin-makers of Ghana, as well as Elmira Castle and Cape Coast Castle, where they come face-to-face with the conditions slaves endured awaiting their fate.

While onboard guests also have the opportunity to support a Planeterra - G Adventures’ non-profit organisation - project, a maternal and infant health programme in Sierra Leone.
The MS Expedition sails the following itinerary:
West Africa Cruise – A 32-day trip from Cape Town to Marrakech is priced from £10,699pp*, departing April 6, 2013.  Includes 29 nights aboard the MS Expedition, all meals on board ship, two hotel nights with breakfast (Cape Town and Marrakech), airport transfers, shore excursions and sightseeing per the itinerary, lectures and wine tastings, and zodiac excursions with G Adventures’ expert expedition team.
