Meet Africa!

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.
