African visa – West-route – from South to North/East to West
Although I am aware that visa regulations change continuously, I think it would be helpful to have a complete list of the places where one can get visa for (South-/Central-/)West-African countries if one drives from south to north (/east to west). This may be particularly useful in planning the route from South Africa to Maroc and prevents threads to be started per country.
I made the following list and completed it as far as I could, based on my own experience, although more options shall be possible. I realise that visa costs may vary per nationality, but we can keep this in mind and the list will therefore give a rough idea.
I invite all of you who have recent experience to complete the list as best as you can! Thanks a lot for the effort!
