How much do you know about Cote Divoire, the great places to visit and the rich culture of the people, you will really love the country

If you haven't already heard about the Garifuna culture, then come to Belize and learn about it the hands-on way with Warasa Garifuna Drum School.  The Garifuna people are descendants of shipwrecked slaves who mixed with the Arawak and Carib indians on St Vincent in the 17th century, creating a whole new ethnicity and culture.  The language and music of the Garifuna has been declared a masterpiece of human heritage by UNESCO in 2001.  Help us keep the culture alive through the vibrant beat of drums!

Thomas, West Africa Discovery's CEO, will be travelling to Sierra Leone for a research project he is conducting for his MSc in Responsible Tourism Management. As part of his travels, he wants to involve all of you in his journey of discovery (itinerary, experiences, photos, facts, stories, videos, etc...). To start things off, he has plotted his planned itinerary including information about the places he will visit and the things he hopes to do. Regular updates will be posted on this page to keep you involved in his journey.

We are also raising funds to buy school material for the communities Thomas is visiting. Here is a break down of the items that we will buy.

Hi guys,

  My youngest daughter Kristina is going to Avignon, France to teach for about 8 months beginning in latter September. Does anyone have any heads up on a place to stay that is reasonable and walking distance and hopefully to train station. Let me know ASAP. Thanks

We have just received our copy of the Rough Guides First-Time Africa in which we are listed on page 405, under the 'Africa Specialist Operators' category. The entry states: "West Africa Discovery: One of the few companies specializing in West Africa , with unusual tours and a strong responsible travel ethos".



We have a selection of sustainably managed responsible tourism projects just for you to discover. Work with us to create better places to visit and better places to live in, in West Africa.


You can also join a community dedicated to travel in West Africa which explores the rich local heritage in a sustainable and responsible way.

Inspired by World Poetry Day, we would like to launch a West Africa Local Heritage Poetry Competition. Send us your entries to share your love for west African history, nature & culture and we will publish them on the web portal for review. Prizes to be announced. We look forward to it!


West Africa Poetry - some poems for inspiration

Our resident poet Daouda Fall (Dave the poet) lives in Toubab Dialaw, Senegal and has been writing poems for as long as he can remember. His mission in life is to raise awareness towards his continent of Africa and to share his passion for peace, sustainability and unity of the African peoples through the medium of his poetry. This is why he tunes in perfectly with the West Africa Discovery mission.

My company owns and licenses the world's best travel software featuring all back-end website features such as newsletters, maps, calendars of events, reservations, itinerary builders, custom itinerary maps, route planners, client admin panels, advertising, e-commerce, and a robust data-mining engine. This software serves destination marketers by providing a link between points of interest and visitors. It also serves highly affinity markets including African Diaspora Tourism.

I am looking for investors and/or strategic marketing partners to expand our scope into all aspects of travel, point of presence advertising, and event support. Our fully-developed product includes full and innovative support for QR codes, Smartphones, and Social Media sites.

Interested and qualified parties must be willing to sign an NDA since our marketing plans and applications are far-advanced and ready to apply to the market. Interested parties must also be ready to attack the market since we are not interested in creeping forward and exposing our solutions without gaining a significant, first mover advantage. Please respond to

Our applications will change travel marketing and how travelers interact in space. Each of our applications are instantly monetized. They also develop robust and profitable data assets built on individual and aggregate user profiles and preferences.

As a descendant of Freedom Seekers that came to Canada in 1851 from Kentucky, I have developed a tour for the Niagara Canada - U.S.A. region.  Sites visited included the crossing point of freedom for many, the church Harriet Tubman attended when in Canada, the grave of Anthony Burns and many others. Hope to meet you on my tour one day.
