Current state/safety of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ivory Coast
2 months until departure, and current route is Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, and continuing down the west coast to South Africa. (Here's hoping Mauritania is ok by the time we leave!!)
I've had the sudden urge to alter my route, and from the Gambia continue down through Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Ivory Coast.
Having looked through the Travel Safety and Sub-Saharan Travel forums, I haven't been able to find much recent relevant information regarding the current political and social state of Sierra Leone, Liberia and the Ivory Coast.
- Has anyone gone through recently?
- Is it safe to go through these countries at the moment?
- Are there any areas we should avoid?
Any and all information is greatly appreciated!
