Mariam Traore

Mariam Traore

Mariam Traore is one of our “lifers” (those who started with the company from inception). She is quite at home in travel and tourism, the industry where she has spent all her professional life.

Mariam has an encyclopedic knowledge of hotels throughout West and Central Africa, and can be relied on to extract the last room in that “sold out” property.

She is fluent in French and English as well as several regional dialects, which accounts for the ease with which she usually secures your preferred accommodation, whether in a big-city 5-star property or the small remotely located guest house.

Ousmane Guindo

Ousmane Guindo

Ousmane Guindo, our Tours and Meeting Planning Manager was born in Anakila, a small Dogon village in Mali. (The Dogons are indigenous to Mali only). Guindo lived in several villages while his father, a teacher frequently moved the family to wherever his civil service career led. Growing up in different regions of Mali gave Guindo a working knowledge of the cultures, languages and customs of several Malian ethnic groups. He is a graduate of the University of Bamako where he studied languages. In addition to French, he speaks English fluently and is quite comfortable with the German language. Guindo's career in the hospitality industry started with the international hotel group Kempinski, which allowed him to travel for extended periods in Chad, Switzerland and Spain.

He has led tours or managed conferences in Mali, Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Liberia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, and Mauritania. His love for adventure, the outdoors and meeting people from different cultures resulted in Kempinski’s loss and Continent Tours good fortune. Guindo is never satisfied unless all aspects of your tour or conference exceed your expectations.

Guindo looks forward to welcoming you to Mali and West Africa.
