Do you mean the south of Africa, like South Africa? From Dakar?
Or south from Burkina to Ghana?
You can try to get on a cargo ship from Dakar heading south, but I won't take that chance. Otherwise, you have to take a flight. Don't know which is the best connections, but Kenya Airways and South African Airways have the most connections througout Africa.
