A DAY IN THE VILLAGE

Village

The village excursion, where people still live in mud brick houses with thatched roofs, is one of the most interesting ones. The drive there will take you along an African road that was renovated a couple of years ago. Meanwhile you can observe beautiful nature and picturesque villages filled with children and smiling people. Apart from a multitude of mosques, modest village shops, wells and small streams, you will often meet women, who carry heavy burdens on their heads, farmers working the land and shepherds taking care of livestock. It can also happen that a herd of cows or sheep will cross the road with a slow, African tempo and completely stop all traffic.

When you enter the village, you will first meet with the village chief (alkali). He needs to grant you permission to walk freely around the village. You will get to spend unforgettable time with local families. The smiling people of this village will allow you insight into their daily lives, religion and customs. You will get to try their traditional cuisine, see their humble homes and get to experience part of their culture and tradition. The chief might even give out some village secret.
