Pitfalls I might experience when I drive my old campervan to Ghana from Bristol UK
HI Just wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what I have to be aware of when I drive my camper from Bristol UK to Accra in Ghana
Anywhere I should avoid or not miss? I would like to go at the end of November
Great stuff it will be a terrific experience. We drove from Portugal to Ghana traveling through Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and then into Ghana.
I would strongly encourage you to learn a few phrases in French as there is not much English spoken until you reach Accra. The border crossing between Mauritania and Senegal is challenging known as the Rosso crossing.
Good luck with your route.
Will I have to cross the desert going off road or can I go on the road all the way?
No there are roads all the way even across the desert in Mauritania. The roads in some places are very rough but they are technically roads we did not need to use our 4X4 on the roads. Worst are the potholes
Thanks. Do you think I will get there in a T3 Volswagan camper?
yes they drive alsorts of vehicles it is amazing what they drive and travel in in that part of the world. We have a lot of info on our blog
