West Africa

West Africa

The array of small countries spread across Africa's western coast—places like Nigeria, Senegal, Togo and Mauritania—are not on every traveler's bucket list, but have a rich cultural heritage and amazing wildlife. We suggest reading up on the Triangle Trade, enjoying a few West African folktales or following the (always wonderful) Peter Matthiessen as he searches for endangered wildlife in African Silences.
