West Africa - A dramatic region of Africa full of beaches, forests and vibrant urban centres
West Africa is a sub region of Africa that contains 18 mostly coastal countries and islands, set along the dramatic North Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Guinea. Brightsun Travel offers discounted airfares to West Africa all year round so that you can escape to the tropics this holiday. Starting in the Ivory Coast, or Côte d'Ivoire, one of the region’s most booming economies, and you could enjoy a diverse city break in its economic capital of Abidjan. Abidjan is bursting at the seams with roof top bars atop gleaming skyscrapers, and, nestled in its lively neighbourhoods, some of the best dance halls and night clubs on the continent. Head to the beaches and forests surrounding the city and you could find yourself in the World Heritage resort town of Grand Bassam, which offers tropical lagoons and gorgeous sandy beaches, and in National Parks and reserves that contain impressive natural landscapes. Brightsun Travel offers numerous cheap flights to West Africa, taking you into the centre of the Ivory Coast, and into a range of countries across the region.
Fly into Accra, Ghana’s capital city, and you could find yourself amongst bustling markets, historical coastal towns, lively beaches and small pockets of African rainforests. In Accra itself you can enjoy up and coming neighbourhoods with impressive galleries, restaurants and boutiques, plus atmospheric markets, and beaches lined with boutique hotels. From Accra you could visit Cape Coast and Elmina, historic coastal areas littered with forts and castles, which have been awarded World Heritage status. Or, head to Kakadu National Park and you could spot wild elephants in their natural habitat. Or perhaps you’d like to visit the most populous nation in Africa, Nigeria? Fly into Lagos, the country’s largest city, and enjoy a fast-developing urban centre, which offers a mix of the old and the new in its pretty old town and exploding arts and culinary scenes. And for nature lovers, Lagos is the perfect base to explore Ghana’s conservation centres and National Parks that provide sanctuary to wild elephants and important wetlands.
