H.E.L.P. Travel introduces a new travel concept, associating a specific humanitarian mission to a true discovery of the magical African lands.
The H.E.L.P. Travel concept is to blend a holiday trip with a humanitarian action, and to make the combination of the two accessible to everybody.
Simple and specific actions are previously and uniquely planned for each participants ; fluvial and terrestrial excursions are integrated in the itinerary, towards the discovery of remote villages and lands, still preserved and untamed.
The mission is organized in a way that will be finished and accomplished during the participants’ visit , who will directly work towards the completing of the action.
He will get to know all of the people he helped, in an atmosphere of joy and happiness.
He will have the chance to really feel the beauty that lingers in this side of the world, as his Goodwill will open all doors.
Sustainable Travel and Solidarity Tourism are the new frontier in the Traveller’s world: with the H.E.L.P. Travel Projects and Missions, the participants have the chance to happily interact with local populations for a deeper contact and understanding of the lands they visit.
Special events and celebrations will take place uniquely for the visitors, giving them the chance to discover ancient rhythms, dances and traditions.
H.E.L.P. Travel actions and adventures take place mainly in the Casamance Region of Senegal, cradle of ancient and characteristic cultures and tribes; tours are also planned towards the discovery of Guinea-Bissau rivers and islands.
H.E.L.P. Travel (helptravel.org) will be introducing their tours and projects in the forthcoming fairs in Paris (Salon Mondial du Tourisme) and St Tropez (DITEX 2007);
A special promotion is offered to travel writers and agents, tour operators and tourism professionals.
