Any trip to Africa involves a leap of faith, not because of the reality on the ground but because the Western world's perception of Africa has always been a bit askew! It is typically portrayed as a dark continent of war, famine, disease and pestilence.

Of course, in the same way the USA is a country of Cowboys, Indians and school killing sprees - and England a land of tea, cucumber sandwiches and tennis. We know the stereotype is false, but it is hard to get beyond the media image sometimes!

From Here 2 Timbuktu aims to give you a perspective changing trip, to show you Africa as it really is (rather than the Africa perceived by the west). We encourage you to embrace Africa with us from an African perspective.

Any trip to Africa involves a leap of faith, not because of the reality on the ground but because the western world’s perception of Africa has always been a bit askew. It is the “dark continent” of war, famine, disease and pestilence, just like the USA is a country of cowboys and Indians and school killing sprees and England the land of tea and cucumber sandwiches and tennis on the lawn on endless summer evenings.

Of course we know the stereotype is false, but it is hard to get beyond the image sometimes.
