TOP FIVE COUNTRIES YOU CAN TRAVEL TO BY ROAD IN WEST AFRICA.

It is no doubt the pandemic is a hard one especially on lovers of adventures and vacations. However, as the lockdown gradually eases off and many health team try to find a cure to COVID-19, it is time to sketch your bucket list of where to travel especially locally once things get better.

We have decided to help you with a travel- friendly list especially if you currently reside in West Africa, is stucked there (because of the ban on international flights) or will be visiting West Africa. Here goes the list.

Countries you can travel to from West Africa includes:

GHANA

Known for its colourful cultural wears and music and ranked Africa most peaceful country, Ghana is indeed a nice place to visit and enjoy a vacation in, especially in it’s capital, Accra.

Ghana weather is on the hot side. It can also get pretty hot, reaching about 30°C or 86°F, on most days. The heat is tempered by the cool breezes blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean.

They speak English as an unifying language. Two of the most widespread native languages are the Twi language of the Ashanti people – which is spoken in the southern and central regions – and the Dagbani language of the Dagomba people – more commonly spoken by people in areas to the north.

Ghanian food is a mix of indigenous flavours and outside influences – like European and Indian. You will find tomato-based stews with complex flavours throughout Ghana. The stews usually contain a type of marine or freshwater fish and are eaten with a dough, which is used to scoop up the fish and soak up the fragrant sauce. The dough – sometimes called fufu or akple – is made from any type of starch including cassava, plantain, yam, maize, millet, sorghum, potatoes or cocoyams. Another staple of Ghanaian cuisine is jollof rice: a one-pot rice dish that includes a variety of Ghanaian spices with tomatoes and chili. Peanuts are often used to flavour stews and garnish dishes. You will be sure to find taro leaves and okra in many of their dishes.

Considering trying Ghana for a vacation after the pandemic? Yes! Though ensure you have yourself a Kente cloth (a fabric worn by Ashanti royalty) while leaving. Also remember to change your money to cedi since this is the currency used in Ghana.

 

SOUTH AFRICA:

Wow! Now, this country, also known as “Rainbow Nation”, is known worldwide for their skills in sports including rugby, cricket, golf and soccer. They have about twelve tourist centres you don’t want to miss out either. You should also note that South Africa is the 24th-largest country in the world. That will help you when you feel you have exhausted all the places to visit while there.

South Africa has a generally temperate climate being surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans on three sides and is home to the oldest meteor scar in the world – the Vredefort Dome in a town called Parys. It is known for the winds.

At least thirty-five languages indigenous to South Africa are spoken in the Republic, ten of which are official languages of South Africa: Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swati, Tsonga, Tswana, Venḓa, Xhosa, Zulu and Afrikaans.The most common language spoken as a first language by South Africans is Zulu (23 percent), followed by Xhosa (16 percent), and Afrikaans (14 percent). English is the fourth most common first language in the country (9.6%), but is understood in most urban areas and is the dominant language in government and the media. So be sure to keep your English language skills handy.

Don’t leave South Africa without eating their special meals: biltong & droewors, boerewors, malva pudding, chakalaka & pap, braai/shisa nyama, bunny chow, bobotie and melktert. South Africans enjoy not only beef, but mutton, goat, chicken and other meats as a centerpiece of a meal incase you are meatatarian. On weekends, many South African families have a “braai,” and the meal usually consists of “pap and vleis”, which is maize meal and grilled meat.

The South Africa currency is rands which is equivalent to 0.060 USD.

 

ETHIOPIA

Ethiopia is a landlocked country on the Horn of Africa, in the east of the continent. It is bordered by Djibouti, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Somaliland (Somalia). Ethiopia covers Simien Mountains. There is a list things to do there and places to visit like the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela, The Holy City of Harar, Gondar, The Blue Nile Falls, Addis Ababa and The Aksum.

Ethiopia enjoys a mild climate, with average temperatures below 20°C in the highlands. This number can rise past 30°C on the lowland fringes of eastern, southern and western Ethiopia. Generally the best time to visit is between October and June, when it is the dry season.

However, Amharic is the “working language” in Ethiopia together with Oromo, which is one of the two most widely spoken languages in the country though English is the most widely spoken foreign language.

Ethiopian cuisine (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ምግብ) characteristically consists of vegetable and often very spicy meat dishes. A typical dish consists of injera accompanied by a spicy stew, which frequently includes beef, lamb, vegetables and various types of legumes, such as lentils which are not only healthy and nutritious, but is also a great way to expose children (if you are visiting with your kids) to new flavors and teach them about other parts of the world at the same time.

Be sure to change your money to Ethopian Birr (ETB) in any Ethiopian bank while visiting. It is a plus to know their currency is known to be very strong.

A little extra tips…

If you are a humanitarian and love to know people of diverse culture irrespective of socio-economic background and share your life with them, Togo might be a perfect place to visit.

Togo is a sliver piece of land which finds itself hidden on the topographical map between the countries Ghana, Burkina Faso and Benin.  In West Africa, Togo stands to be one of the prominent tourist destinations with quite a variety of tourist attractions to offer to its visitors. It offers some extra-ordinary and interesting sites: Togo has great beaches, scenic spots and busy markets to make any holiday a memorable one.

The national dish in Togo is Fufu – ball of cassava served with soup. Other dishes are often staple foods including maize, rice, millet, cassava, yam, plantain and beans. Maize is the most commonly consumed food in the Togolese Republic. Fish is a significant source of protein, and bush meat is often hunted and consumed.

 

The currency of the Togolese is West African CFA franc.

MOROCCO

This North African country is mostly visited by tourists to see the famed Sahara Desert. Other places they want to see may include: Hassan II Mosque, Mint Tea and Pastries, Majorelle Garden, The Islamic Architecture, Todgha Gorge and The Tagine.

The best time to visit Morocco is during spring (mid-March to May) or fall (September to October). The weather is warm but pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter, or the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year-round.

In Morocco there are two official languages, Arabic and Amazigh, which are spoken in the streets and villages of Morocco. Classical Arabic, more commonly known as Literary Arabic, is the administrative language of the country. Generally speaking, you will hear Moroccan Arabic spoken in the streets. However, 18.3 % of Moroccans speak English -English is the second most spoken foreign language in Morocco, according to the most recent data disclosed by High Commission for Planning.

 

Tip:

You can say “As-salaam Alaykum” (literally) “Peace be with you” as a form of greeting to a Moroccan, interchangeable for “hello”  and “Walaykum As-salaam” is the response. Meanwhile, “Sbah l’kheir” means “good morning”.

The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous. Beef is the most commonly eaten red meat in Morocco, usually eaten in a tagine with a wide selection of vegetables. Chicken is also very commonly used in tagines or roasted. They also use additional ingredients such as plums, boiled eggs, and lemon.

The best currency to use in Morocco is Dirham, denoted as MAD or Dhs. It’s preferable when you go out pay in Dirham currency. The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. £1 sterling is approximately 13 Morrocan Dirhams.

I hope you enjoy your stay in these countries. Bon voyage!
