The team

Welcome, smile and dedication...

The SARL ESSAMAYE is a Senegalese company founded by a senegalese, François Xavier DIATTA, and a french man, Philippe MIGAUD. Both form a french-senegalese team who love western africa, and want to offer you original and tailor-made touristic stays and tours.
The creation of our company originates in our interest for Senegal, the different cultures, the history, the fauna and flora. Our company aims at sharing our experience and love for this country. Our keen knowledge of Senegal and its inhabitants enables us to offer you exceptional trips during which you will meet different local tribes, virgin landscapes and the fauna and flora of the mangrove. We always have the greatest respect and consideration for the inhabitants and the environment.
