What have West Africans historically had to say about Back-to-Africa movements? Have they supported it, or did they find it silly? Or worse, insulting?

Alternate phrasing: have West Africans ever agitated for or supported the return of freed slaves or their descendants to West Africa? Or has Back-to-Africa sentiment only been present in Black American and white abolitionist communities?

I hope the use of "West Africans" isn't too broad β€” I'm trying to avoid falling into the portrayal of Africa as a single monolith, but, because European slave traders were active all across the West African coast, I feel this is the best I can do in this context.

I also want to say, I'm aware of Ghana's recent Year of Return 2019 and Right of Return policy, but for one, that's well on the near side of the 20 year rule, and for another, I want to know more about the rhetorical history in addition to the political, I suppose.

Anyone with experiences in West Africa?

I’m forming a plan for a future trip to essentially travel from Morocco to South Africa hugging the Atlantic coast of Africa. I have a few questions about some specifics.

I will be doing the trip by bicycle so it would involve lots of wild camping, I understand that always carries risks but are there any specific risks to that region which I wouldn’t have encountered in Europe/Asia/South America? I speak good French and English so there shouldn’t be an issue with languages for the most part until Angola

Given the nature of the trip it would be very hard to organise all my visas in advance, are there any countries where it would be impossible for a European to obtain a visa from an embassy in a neighbouring country?

The only country I would avoid completely is the DRC, and I would instead take a boat around it by entering Angola on its border with the republic of the Congo. The only other countries I have some concerns about are Cameroon, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Cameroon is pretty unavoidable but I could easily skip Liberia and Sierra Leone if they are too dangerous. Has anyone had any experiences in these countries?

Thanks for reading!
