Trip to Senegal 2021-2022

TRIP TO SENEGAL, WEST AFRICA!!!!

From October 1st,  to May 1st 2021/2022

A 7.5 HOUR RIDE FROM AMERICA TO AFRICA from NY

A 8 day 7 night trip for $1250 with a $100 perdium rate if you want to stay longer! **You must buy your own ticket  to Senegal (We will need to know what day and time you will arrive)***  

 

It is with great excitement and pleasure we will be bringing our people to Senegal from Octocber 1st 2021 to  May 1st 2022. My husband,  my family, and I are delighted to bring our people to this beautiful, culturally rich country in Africa!   

 

Here is a copy of our brochure!   It is a  pretty full schedule, so plan on having an amazing experience, during the time you are in there!

 

Have you ever gone to Africa with someone who has been there well over 30 times and has a house there where we can chill?   Where we now

have land that we will be building Condos, a farm as well?!  Our house:

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you ever gone to Africa where you truly hang with the people and learn the rich culture and language of that people, eat the food, party with, travel with, and feel safe and secure!   

 

Well that is Senegal! There are plenty of trips out there now, but when you are with us, you are not a tourist, you are family, you are home!   

 

The Senegalese hang out with us, cook for us, dance with us, party with us, embrace us, and hope that we decide one day to live there and bring our skills there!

 

We  in turn, visit families,  go to fascinating museums, ride animals, chill on the beach, learn about salt mining, herbal medicines, natural resources, for our well being and beauty enhancements, and so much more!   We also get a chance to see how the Senegalese honor a Black man and his mother in an African/muslim style!   Culture first is the model!!    

 

We get a chance to tour with well qualified informed escorts and my husband who knows everything about his country and shares with us so much we become so in love with this peaceful country, we don’t want to leave and come back to racism and hate ever again!  

 

For some of us, our minds start thinking about what we can do in Africa to stay there,  do business there, buy land there, buy a condo there, or even a room, or  continue to visit.

 

Saly,  where our house is, and where you will be staying!   It will be in a hotel in walking distance to our house.   At our house you will eat breakfast and dinner, but you will sleep and rest at the Hotel next door!   Saly is   particularly is a tourist city.   It has all the amenities, like pharmacies, grocery stores, markets everywhere, artists everywhere, jewelers, leather makers, fashion, fashion, fashion, and lots of entertainment!

 

 As  a tourist city, you have all the accommodations, plus you get to be around villages to meet with the wonderful hospitable people, schools, and witness peaceful living!   

 

Well let me take you on a little tour, and show you our usual itinerary!  

 

If you decide to stay longer we can consider staying on Goree Island longer,  go up to St. Louis for a jazz show, or see a late night concert using traditional African Instruments from the Mali Empire, sit with Artists to learn drumming, jewelry making, shoe making, visit a healer, go to a concert by Senegal’s well know artists like Youssou n Dor, or Baba Mal, or take some dance classes, at the Cultural Center in Dakar, Visit some schools run by African American women and their Senegalese husbands, and so much more!
