Hi,

Visa for mali you can get at the ambassy in Nouakchott (Mauritania)
Guinea I don't know,
Togo at the ambassy in Accra (ghana)
Nigeria at the ambassy in Accra to,
Cameroon at the ambassy in Calabar (Nigeria),
Gabon at the ambassy in Yaounde (Cameroon)
Congo at the ambassy in Libreville (Gabon)
DRC at the ambassy in Libreville to.

Regards,
Frank

some info

Mali, Got mine at the border. 1 month
Nigeria, must get before border..got mine in Niger
Cameroon, Got in Abuja nigeria
Gabon, got in abuja
Congo, got in abuja.

The Nigerian police will not let you pass to the border if you do not have a cameroon visa. ( when I was there anyway 2008 )
Abuja will surprise you. I did not like Nigeria but because this city is only for people who have business in the city, it is a lot quieter.

Now you seem to be going the coastal route which means you will be going to Lagos...sorry for you!
Cheers
Orrin

Best to get your visa for Guinea from Nouakchott - same day service if you can find a day when they open - and much cheaper than in Bamako, Mali.

I assume that you prefer getting your visas straight at the border, without having to spend time at embassies.

This is possible for Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Togo, Congo and most likely for Cameroon.

I am not sure about Guinea (haven't been).

I know that Gabon will be tough without prior visa and Nigeria practically impossible.

Hi, I have gone trough most posts about visas for the West Coast but I can not find any info for visas if traveling from South to North ! I just wonder if most visas, say at least up to Nigeria can be obtained in South Africa and if so they must be flexible on dates. Thanks - Alfredo
