Bismillah! Au mwebeni so! Anichié! Bienvenue! Welcome!
Born in Zimbabwe, raised in England, Africa has always welcomed me back. I want to repay Africa's warm hospitality by sharing the places I know with you.
Over the years From Here 2 Timbuktu has become a network of handpicked guides, cooks, drivers and fixers, families, clans and tribes who have seen me, Guy Lankester, right throughout my own travels. We all want to share with you the Africa we know and inspire you to come again and again to this amazing continent.
We can get you into the heart of Africa, and will show you a positive, diverse and vibrant continent with original, inspiring and resilient people.
Tours to all destinations can be organised on a customised basis at any time of year.
Small set group trips (most of which I lead) are listed under Upcoming Trips in upcoming order.
Come with us on a journey of a lifetime, discover your nomadic shadow stretching over Saharan sands to Africa beyond.
