About Thiosane Travel.

Thiosane Travel has been one of the best travel organizations for organizing trips in West Africa since 2002. What makes us unique is that we are the only travel company that specializes in traveling by car through Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea and since 2014 to Benin, Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Gambia and Senegal.

The purpose of our trips is to introduce the traveler to as many aspects of West Africa as possible in a safe and respectful way. For this you can put together various trips with us.

We offer both group and individual tours. This is possible thanks to our extensive network in West Africa, where we work with various reliable organizations and guides to organize our trips.

The trips are ideal for people who do not want to arrange everything themselves, but want to be able to decide for themselves what to do.

Customization with attention to individual wishes that is characteristic of our trips.

We organize:

  • cultural tours, where you see as much as possible of the country and the people.
  • outdoor sports trips, where you can be active on hiking trips, boat trips or sports climbing.
  • workshops and courses, where you can make music, dance or practice a craft.
  • study internships and volunteer work, where you do your training, but above all learn a lot from a different culture and customs.

What you can expect from us:

Good information and preparation

Traveling through Africa is not the same as going on holiday in Europe or America. We therefore find it important to prepare well for the holiday together with the travelers.

With group travel we usually organize a meeting to go through everything properly, to give tips and – for those who want to – to arrange the flight and visas.

Are you going alone or in a small group? Even then you can count on good support in the preparation, via email, telephone or via a personal conversation.

During the trip itself, the tour leader also provides information about the day’s program at fixed times. And of course he is always available for questions or comments.


We will arrange everything for you. You can count on pleasant support from the start to the end of the holiday, so that you can fully enjoy your trip. This way we can arrange your visa, but also arrange everything for the flight. On location, we ensure that transport is properly arranged.

We have many years of experience and can use an extensive network with which we can provide the greatest possible security with transport, illness, accidents or other problems in West Africa.


We provide the comfort that suits you for a pleasant holiday. For example, you can choose to stay in hotels that meet the basic requirements: safe, clean and with sufficient facilities.

If you want more luxury, it can usually fit in well with our trips. Ask about the options and costs in advance.


Thiosane Travel offers the greatest possible safety that a travel organization can offer for West Africa. For example, we are constantly kept informed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch embassy of possible risks and calamities. More importantly, we have an extensive network that is also used for security. For example, we are in contact with police and customs officials and with doctors and specialists. We have assistance scenarios available for the most conceivable situations. Inquiries with our travelers have shown that they feel even safer with us in Africa than many airports and tourist attractions in Europe.

As everywhere in the world, your safety is mainly determined by your knowledge of the country, the people and the customs. If you do not have that knowledge, the tour leader of Thiosane Travel does and he knows what to do and what not to do, when to do something or not to do something and where to and not to come.

Travelers of Thiosane Travel are, if desired, taught what to look out for, so that after a short self-guided tour you can get on the road safely. We also have a number of very reliable supervisors.


Thiosane Travel offers the best possible quality. We do everything we can to ensure that our travels run smoothly and smoothly. We carefully select our local partners and prepare them for what is expected of them. Of course we are present as tour guide to make adjustments if necessary. During the trip we are open to suggestions and criticism and we respond flexibly to wishes and unexpected circumstances.
