(ex international flights)


10 days

This 10 day cruise gives you the chance to marvel at the stunning beauty of West African nature, the rich cultural traditions, and the compelling history of the Senegal River. It is combined with plenty of land excursions. Highlights include: ➣ Admire the striking architecture of Saint Louis. ➣ Learn about the ancient traditions of the Toucouleur people. ➣ Feast upon mouth watering regional dishes in remote river villages. ➣ Live the nomadic lifestyle in Lompoul desert. Travelling by water enables you to reach off the beaten track destinations, which are otherwise impassable by road, whilst enjoying a more tranquil way of seeing the country. Please note, there is no river cruise from June to September.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
