Drum and Dance classes in The Gambia
Activities: The activities will include 9 days of drum, dance and folklore classes. We will visit at least two cities. This will require two travel days. There are always special events and celebrations. Of course you will have time set aside for shopping. And, everyone receives one drum as part of his or her registration.
Accommodations: We will be living just outside of Dakar, visiting the Gambia, Cassamance, or St. Louis. A house, an apartment, or local cottages will be rented in each location. There will be 2 to 4 people in a room depending on the number of participants.
You will need to bring your own bedding, i.e. sheets, a pillow and case, should you require one. A light sleeping bag or sleeping sack is an acceptable alternative. Foam mattresses will be provided. In most locations, bucket showers are the norm. You should bring a few rolls of toilet tissue. It may be difficult to find or more expensive than you think since this is considered a tourist item.
Meals are prepared by local families. Breakfast is fruit, coffee or tea, and French bread. We can provide eggs if you would like to prepare them yourself. You may also bring dehydrated foods or cereal with you.
The large meal of the day is between 1 and 3 o'clock. The general diet often includes some variation of rice, vegetables, and fish. The evening meal is generally a lighter variation of rice, salads, or fish and chips. Chicken, lamb or beef are occasionally prepared as special meals. We will do our best to accommodate special needs, but realize that vegetarian menus and special diets are difficult to accommodate. You should plan on spending approximately $4.00 a day for bottled water, or you may bring a portable filtration System available at camping shops
Included in your registration is the cost of all ground transportation in Senegal associated with trip activities, all classes, housing, three meals a day, and special events.
Note: This fee does not include the round trip ticket from the United States to Dakar, Senegal, the cost of your passport, visas, gratuities, phone calls, and personal charges. Your tour participation and payment for this tour, is an agreement by you as a participant that Mark Sunkett or any representative shall not be liable for any accident, injury, property damage or personal loss to you or those traveling with you in connection with any accommodations, transportation or other services resulting directly or indirectly from such occurrences or conditions beyond his control, including, but not limited to acts of terrorism, defects in vehicles, breakdowns of equipment, strikes, thefts, delay or cancellation in itinerary or schedules. You are responsible for acquiring your own passport, visas and immunizations. No visa is required for Senegal if you are a U.S. citizen. You will need a visa for The Gambia. This can be obtained in Dakar but it would save time to get this before you leave the United States.
