African Ancestry Family Reunions

Senegal

African Ancestry Family Reunions in Senegal are specially curated all-inclusive birthright journeys. Now that your genetic ancestry has been found in Senegal, join us for an authentic, culturally immersive experience back home. We have worked in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, local communities, businesses and cultural organizations, to create an unforgettable reconnection to your family’s roots. This journey goes far and beyond your average tourist trip! We will honor our ancestors, learn our histories and give back to our brothers and sisters in Senegal with lots of love, laughter and respect.

All of our Senegal Family Reunions have been postponed until further notice due to constant changing COVID-19 protocols. Please contact travel@africanancestry.com if you have any questions.
