The Motherland dream tour

This popular tour requires a minimum of 2 participants. It allows you to explore Dakar and Goree Island taking you back to 350 years of African Slavery.
Explore the Pink Lake, a natural curiosity. The senegalese version of the Dead-sea. Experience salt collectors harvesting the salt. Also visit the original city of Saint-Louis, the African door to French colonisation. However, Saint-Louis reminds you of New Orleans with wooden balconies lining the narrow streets.
With a boat ride to SIPPO island, you will meet for the first time an African Queen and pose for souvenir pictures.
An overnight in tents with modern toilets in the middle of the desert is an unfogettable experience.
Visit one of the most beautiful MOSQUE in West Africa located in the holy city of TOUBA.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had the most amazing two weeks with Oumar and driver Bapi (request Bapi! Best driver ever!) Oumar planned everything amazingly, and accommodated our every off-the-wall request. It was a wonderful 12 days; he even had art packed and shipped to the states for us! The itinerary was well-planned, but flexible enough to get us to two extra countries for the crazy country collectors in our group. We've traveled extensively and have to say, this was one of our favorite trips.
