ULTIMATE EXPEDITION MARRAKECH-BISSAU, SHORTER ITINERARIES

ULTIMATE TRANS-SAHARA & BLACK AFRICA EXPEDITION.
JOIN US JUST FOR YOUR PREFERRED PART OF THE EXPEDITION

A journey from south to north (or north to south) , in unique ever-changing landscapes.

These itineraries are the outcome of many years of research on the field: going through all these different eco-systems we encounter the main natural, cultural and religious “milieu” of the African continent.

A great variety of landscapes, cultures, and nature is reflected in the choice of different transport means, using always the best one to fully enjoy the environment.

CULTURE – Local authentic cultures. In the south, sacred forests where traditional animistic religions are still practiced, fetish and shrines in remote villages, tribal kings and dancing masks, then Dakar, the most cosmopolitan Western African metropolis. From Moorish nomads and camel herders to fishermen at the edge of the desert and by the ocean. Legendary Reguibat and Sahrawi nomads of the still untamed Western Sahara (currently annexed to Morocco), the most isolated Berber villages and the last cave-dwelling families.

HISTORY – We will meet “timeless” men and women and visit “historical” sites such as Bolama (an ancient Portuguese town now vanishing into the forest), Dakar, Goré (the slave-trade island), Saint Louis (the first capital of the former French West African Colonies), Dakhla (the ancient capital of Rio De Oro) and then, at the end, Marrakech, the traditional terminal of caravans coming from Black Africa through the Sahara Desert – there could be no better station to end our expedition.

NATURE – Along the “uncertain border” between water and land, our journey from south to north follows the migratory route of birds – a constant and discreet presence all along our trip – and pays a visit to the  richest bird sanctuary of West Africa.
