West Africa – An Overview

West Africa is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean in the south and west, and Sahara desert in the north. To the east, countries of central Africa wedge the region into a diversity of inter-relating cultures and people. It occupies an area of 5 million sq kms. Steeped in history and filled with countless resources, there are general similarities in dress, cuisine, music and culture that are not shared extensively with groups outside the geographic region. This long history of cultural exchange predates the colonization era of the region and can be approximately placed at the time of the Ghana Empire (the proper name at the time being Wagadou Empire), Mali Empire or perhaps before such empires.

The places common to all destinations and which tourists should work into their schedules for a visit to the region are the markets, beaches, wildlife parks or reserves, old settlements and buildings, natural sites (like mountains and waterfalls) and slave relic sites.
