Inspired by the infamous slave trade, this round-trip tour is designed to enable you follow the footsteps of millions of Africans who were forcibly snatched from Africa and taken to the Americas through the middle passage. For centuries Africans were enslaved and forced to work in the plantations in Brazil, the West Indies and the United States. Now you have the chance to follow the trail and the tour kicks off in The Gambia where you will visit Kunta Kinteh Island as well as Juffureh– the ancestral home of Kunta Kinteh – an African snatched from his village in Juffureh and forcibly taken to the Americas and popularized in the docudrama ‘Roots’ by his black American descendant – Alex Hailey. 

This trip will expose you to the hinterland of the Gambia and you will also have the rare chance to cruise on the tranquil waters of the majestic river Gambia. At Juffureh you will visit the numerous heritage sites, some already in scripted by UNNESCO as world heritage sites. The second leg of the tour takes you to Goree Island in Senegal, where you will visit the slave house as well as the dungeons where slaves were kept in preparation for the middle passage. You will also have the opportunity to visit the recently inaugurated museum of black African civilization in the cosmopolitan city of Dakar. 

 The final leg of the tour will take you to Cashier, in Portuguese speaking Guinea Bissau- dubbed the Slave Coast.
