Hi all, looking to be introduced to African rural culture, but are afraid to throw yourself into the deep end straight away? Well, here is a holiday idea which will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself into African day-to-day life.

"In the West we lead fast, crammed complex lives. We have so much to do, and to get done, and there is little time to stop and do nothing much. In Africa life is much slower, and the days stretch long, hot and unhurried. This is a great place to rest, relax and reflect. There is lots going on, but you can choose your level of participation and be as busy or as quiet as you like."

If you are interested in experiencing the magic of Africa first-hand, have friends that have been going on about travelling to Africa but never have plucked up the courage to go there, or if you just need to relax, kick off your shoes and 'go with the flow', this project is just for you...

Suitable for families - loads of great activities for children of all ages!

West Africa Discovery ( , a web portal aiming to raise awareness towards West Africa and to promote sustainable/responsible tourism development through the listing of tours, accommodations and volunteer projects that strive towards the fulfilment of criteria outlined in the Cape Town, Kerala and Belize declarations on responsible tourism practices in destinations ( We also aim to make West Africa Discovery the first port of call in the UK for referring tourists to Western African based Responsible Tourism projects.

As a company we aim to help in the development of Responsible/Sustainable development in all West African countries by linking like minded people together to facilitate the sharing of ideas, educating by distributing Responsible Tourism related material to Tourism organisations and helping locally based individuals to develop ideas which will help to develop the concept in their country.

We are committed to putting West Africa on the map as a destination that tourists would like to visit, and our vision is that through the West Africa Discovery project the listed accommodations and tours will provide benefits for local communities whilst respecting the natural, cultural, social and historical heritages in the destination.

I spent three weeks in Ghana in May, visiting most of the country so I can advise clients and develop itineraries--especially for those wanting to visit diaspora historical sites. I'm also visiting Mali and Burkina Faso this October to expand my personal knowledge of West Africa--since I'm already well-versed in East and Southern Africa. Does anyone have any thoughts/advise for me in Mali/Burkina Faso?

Africa is front and center on our site this week, with the Go-Lo Spotlight shining on the famous dunes of Sossusvlei in Namibia's Namib-Naukluft National Park. After this week, look for it in our Spotlight archive.
