Senegal in a Nutshell
It’s not an abuse of language when they describe Senegal as Africa’s Jewel. For a simple visit to a full fledged business trip, accommodations and the Teranga (Hospitality in Wolof) are at your finger tips. Senegal is the example of democracy and government stability in Africa. Click here to learn more: http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/2862.htm
Fayekunda African Village Project and the Natural Amphitheater
We are planning to build 25-30 huts in the Village. Some will be offered for weekend retreats of all occasions, short stays, as well as “hut and breakfast” style. The rest of the huts will be workshops for African artisans to perform their trade for sale in the upcoming souvenir shop. Workshop sessions and school field trips will also be organized in the Village. There will be also a cuisine component for occasional food events. We are away from the opening day, but we are working on it. It takes the village to build a village! You are always welcome to drop by either to check us out or to help build the Village.
