Are you really curious to discover West-Africa? Not by air-conditioned hotels and tourist entertainment? But with journeys and excursions which brings you to the normal daily African life, their different cultures, habits and traditions? Join us, meet Africa!
Meet Africa is a small network organization who is operating in Gambia and Senegal . We make special journeys and excursions who give you an inside look in West-Africa. We only travel in small groups with drivers and guides who like to share their knowledge and experience, who are never tired to give answers on your questions and who brings you to unexpected places.
You are sleeping in local African lodges which are situated in the mid of the African society. You are invited to eat on the African way in small restaurants, but also in family compounds. We make picnic lunches when we are on the road and you can have plenty possibilities to make a stop where you want.
You are invited to connect your own interest to what we offer: explain which part of the society you like to discover and we can make a tailor made program for you.

Every journey we organize is airport to airport: we pick you up from the airport and bring you back. You can start or end in Dakar, Senegal or in Banjul, The Gambia. It depends on your flight what suits you the best.
In general, a minimum of six persons and a maximum of twelve persons is required. But it is also possible to make the trip with a smaller or larger group.
All the journeys can be adjusted if guests have special interests in some aspects of the society, like education, health, religion, traditional healing, agriculture, bird watching or art. We can arrange different types of meetings or projects. It is also possible to spend more time at the same place or to connect your trip with some lazy days at the beach.
