Who Are We?

In the past decade From Here 2 Timbuktu has established itself as the go-to travel service for Saharan and West African overland, music festival and adventure trips. Our expertise is the road from London to Timbuktu, Mali and The Tuareg. We offer escorted and tailor made trips, linking our clients up to our extensive network of partners across our region. All journeys have been created, travelled and designed by Guy Lankester.

We also cover The Rift Valley in Tanzania and in April 2016 we are running our first trip out of Africa to Iran

We invite you on a journey along the road less travelled, from wherever you are to somewhere different, "from here to Timbuktu".

Bismillah! Au mwebeni so! Anichié! Bienvenue! Welcome!

Born in Zimbabwe, raised in England, Africa has always welcomed me, Guy Lankester, back. I want to repay Africa's warm hospitality to me by sharing my favourite places and people with you.
