More About Paula Coar/Gueye

Peace, Love and Hotep, Nanga Def

My  name is Paula Coar-Gueye,

  • I am a Tour Guide, who  brings people to Senegal, West Africa   We are embarking on 3 amazing trips to Senegal in 2019 and 2020!    Here are the details:   

TRIP TO SENEGAL, WEST AFRICA for 2019 and 2020



It is with great excitement and pleasure we will be bringing our people to Senegal in December 2019, February (school vacation), and April (school vacation) 2020!  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 for those 3 months!   It is pretty busy schedule so plan on having an amazing experience, during the 8 to 10 days we are in Africa!  


Have you ever gone to Africa with someone who has been there well over 25 times and has a house there where we can chill?   Well that’s me!   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 like it is home!?  Well that is Senegal and how we roll in 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, eat with 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 learn so much culture, we are enthralled almost everyday.  We visit families, visit schools, go to fascinating museums, and performances, ride animals, chill on the beach, learn about salt mining, herbal medicines, natural resources, for our well being along with 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 my husband , Cheikhou Gueye  (we call him Pape) who knows everything about his country and shares with us so much we become so in love with his peaceful country, we don’t want to leave !


For some of us, our minds start thinking about what we can do in Africa to stay there, and there is no better place to stay than Senegal particularly Saly, where our house is!   It has all the amenities, like pharmacies, grocery stores, markets everywhere, artists everywhere, jewelers, leather makers,  fashion, fashion, fashion, lots of entertainment!  It’s a tourist city so, you have all the accommodations, plus you get to be around villages to meet with the wonderful hospitable people, schools, and peaceful living! 


Well let me take you on a little tour, and show you what our usual itinerary, looks like, although it is subject to change, in case you make a special request, like stay on Goree Island for 2 days, or go up to St. Louis for a jazz show, or see a late night concert using traditional African Instruments from the Mali Empire, or a concert by Senegal’s well know artists like Youssou n Dor, or Baba Mal, or take some dance classes, or visit or just jump out a car to see a wedding ceremony or birth ceremony, etc!   I’ve done it all!   I am blessed to be able to share with you just this post!   Now I need you to come and see for yourself how Senegal is a wonderful Country with peaceful, busy people!!
