Gambia - Senegal - Guinea - Bissau - Archipelago Bijagós


This is not a traditional backpacking trip, you will experience Africa in a profound way. We will take you through Gambia, cross Senegal, visit its most remote villages and experience their way of life, and finally reach Guinea-Bissau, where you will discover its gastronomy and local markets.

Finally, we will sail towards the pearl, the highlight of the journey, the natural paradise of the Bijagós Islands. In this dreamlike setting, we will explore its wonderful and generous nature, with a myriad of extraordinary landscapes, spectacular deserted beaches, palm groves and tropical forests, abundant birdlife, and sublime sunsets, all within an ancient culture and animist villages. We will stay in a majestic hotel on the seashore, a blend of culture, ethnicities, nature, and good gastronomy. You can’t miss it!
