Oumar is a great guide that will go out of his way to ensure that you get the best experience ever! very trustworthy, punctual, optimistic, respectful and reliable. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and in good hands. He gives you a great insight into the local living and perspective of senegalese people and has a good understanding of his country, not to mention his full passion and energy for this great land, Senegal, the land of beauty and hospitality. I enjoyed every aspect of this experience!
