About the tour

The culture of the people in Sénégal is divided into various ethnic groups such as Peulh. Most of the Peulhs live in rural districts and much of their life is guided by activities around animal husbandry and breeding. Join us as we respectfully explore what daily life is like in a Peulh Shepard village in Sénégal.

He did a great job of explaining life in the village, how they work and live together, what is their wealth, communicating with the villagers, seeing a cow milked, how they get water and even inside a home. Was a great learning experience and very lovely people. Loved their colorful clothing!

A very special tour of the Sheppard's Village and some of its inhabitants. Definitely off the beaten path. I've loved all of Alioune's tours.

Alioune's tour was a delightful and interesting visit with the people of a farming village in rural Senegal. I learned so much and will take the warm hearts of the villagers as well as the cows, goats and that sweet donkey with me forever.
