Aigle Azur have just announced flights from Paris to Conakry via Bamako (& I would think probably via Algers to refuel)
266€ one way to Bamako, 368€ one way to Conakry currently
Excellent airline that has been doing well on the Algerian routes (owner is Algerian resident in France)
Dear fellow travellers
I have roughly six weeks to travel south from Senegal, that is to Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry before I fly to Nigeria. Since I'll be doing this trip towards the end of the year I have to book my flight to Nigeria soon, otherwise I'll end up with inflated Christmas prices.
Don't know if I'll make it to Conakry or if should fly from Bissau. Can anybody advise me on where to spend more time and what to skip? I like: quiet beaches, villages, nature, rivers, hiking…
my friends and I are going by car from Senegal-Guinea-Côte d'Ivoire to Ghana this year in October. Could anyone give me an update about the current safety situatiuon in Guinea. We are not planing to spend much time in big cities or turist places since we are more keen on the wildlife and rural areas.
Are there any places or regions that are unsafe? Is it possible to cross the Guinea-Côte d'Ivoire border?
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)
