Did anyone recently travel from Guinea-Bissau to Guinea and onward to Sierra Leone?
If so......what are the travel times between these countries' capitals? And any info on decent (not necessarily cheapest) accommodation in Conakry?
Dear fellow travelers,
We are in need of information on travel routes through Guinea. We've been stranded for days in Kindia after our car broke down and urgently need to get to Bissau.
The route through Labe is too time-consuming as it requires us to break up the travel into two days and we've been told by people here in Guinea that there's a good route through Boke - Koumbia - Foulamory and on to Piche in Guinea-Bissau. However we can't find any information online or directly from anyone…
Im a german and wanna know how to get the necessary Visa for onward traveling.
in Ziguinchor for Bissau
in Bissau for Guinea, S.Leone
and in Guinea for S.Leone, Liberia
and in Leone for Liberia.
How long I have to wait for, the cost, multiply entry for Guinea possible , or is it even possible to get them at the border
(I heard for S.Leone is possible).
also for the best and fastest public transport. how long i have to plan just for the transportation
cheers and thanks for infos
Does anyone know if borders are open between Guinea-Sierra Leone? How long does it take to go between Conakry and Freetown and does anyone have contact #s for a driver? We will be there in January.
Does Guinea-Bissau have embassies or consulates in Guinea outside of Conakry? For example in Boké?
FYI, the week of August 4th might not be a good time to go to Conakry, see http://guineenews.org/meeting-geant-de-lopposition-a-conakry-les-dessous-du-choix-du-4-aout-2014/ (TLDR: president out of state, opposition announcing huge rallies)
Hi, please, let me know if it is good choice this route for 2 weeks?
And if someone know how it is with roads, paved or not? Do we need some guide or can we drive the car alone. Is it also possible that people can speak a little English? Our French is a little like zero LOL, but we managed us in Cote d'Ivoire so I hope here it will be the same. Or?
Hello fellow west Africa vagabonds
Does any of you has more info about the current situation of this ebola outbreak in Guinea and especially about the borders? Heard that the one with Senegal is closed at the moment, but how is the ones with Bissau and Sierra Leone?
Im in Bissau at the moment, got my Guinean double entry visa(staggering 60000 CFA!!) and heading towards Freetown. Then will head back to Gambia in a month.
But now with all these border issues doesnt look very good
