The majority of our group tours run with a maximum group size of twelve people, with a limited number of fixed departure dates. We usually only offer one or two group departures of a particular itinerary each year to minimise any negative impact on local communities. These tours are designed to encompass as broad a range of interests as possible, taking in not just the highlights of a destination but those lesser known sites and encounters that are just as – and sometimes more – valuable in terms of your overall experience.
“Noah went to great lengths to seek out and find all sorts of ‘extras’, from a small village ceremony somewhere near Abomey to meeting a feticheur in Togo, and his dedication to our enjoyment really lifted the tour by a couple of notches. I really enjoyed his lively explanations about the different spiritual practices of voodoo and other religions, and we felt that we’d done more than just passively observe, and learnt a great deal.
This trip, and the region, is not for everyone and I can imagine that Africa novices might struggle, but for me it opened up a different area after lots of tours in east and southern Africa. On a practical note, the bus was good and the hotels were in general better than expected, especially given where we were. I’m really grateful for all your patient advice at the time of booking – your knowledge, love and enthusiasm for the region shone through and I shall definitely be travelling with you again.“
