      About this trip

      This pilgrimage back to the last door some of our ancestors crossed on the motherland, is a very special journey which will be filled with emotions, laughs & memories.  As much as we'd love to bring everyone on this epic experience, we KNOW that traveling to some parts of the world where some of the basic necessities we enjoy at home are luxuries, is NOT for everyone!  In the words of Anthony Bourdain "Senegal, an African nation which is over 90% Muslim, serve as both rebuke and example. It is a country that proudly elected as their first president after independence, a Christian—because they felt, in their best judgment, that regardless of his faith, he was the best person for the job.

      It is a country that defies stereotypes and expectations at every turn.

      Emerging from French colonial times as a functioning multicultural, multilingual, extraordinarily tolerant society.

      It has managed to avoid coups, tribal wars, dictatorships and most of the ills that have afflicted so many of its neighbors and remains an absolutely enchanting place to visit, with delicious food, absolutely extraordinarily beautiful music, and a relatively free and easy attitude towards intermarriage, mixed-race and inter-tribal relationships, and foreign visitors.

      It has a powerful and proud tradition of hospitality that endures to this day. Senegal is one of the best arguments for travel I can think of. The more we see of the world, the more we actually meet who we are talking about—take a walk, however briefly, in their shoes, the more we see how other people live, find ourselves—as so often and so inevitably happens—as recipients of random acts of hospitality and kindness from total strangers—then the better we shall be. And the happier we will be. Knowledge of, or exposure to, the “other” is not a contaminant—it enriches us. It makes—or should make us—more humble. Senegal. It’s someplace that everyone, given the chance, should go."

      This was my first trip with Haitian Nomad and it definitely will not be my last. This trip was amazing Richard took care of every detail. Our guide Ramez was always enthusiastic and passionate about teaching us everything about Eygpt. The accommodations were top notch. Our group had the most amazing vibes, everyone was so nice and helpful. 10/10 I would highly recommend this trip.

      Mauritius owes me nothing! This trip was very well-curated. What a beautiful country, located east of Madagascar, sitting on the Indian Ocean. Beautiful people, amazing food, and beaches with clear turquoise water to die for. Saizaid, our tour guide, gave us a rich history of Mauritius. He was very personable, leaving you wanting to learn more about Mauritius. Thank you for discovering this gem and allowing us to see Maurtius through your lens!
