Oumar picked us up at Dakar airport and we had a fantastic three days with him. We were a family of five, three adult children. The trip involved travelling across Senegal all the way to St Louis and back. Oumar and the driver Bape dealt with the various police stops on the roads well, charming the officials at the various checkpoints. The desert camp was amazing but the most spectacular almost biblical place was St Louis. I cannot recommend Oumar highly enough
