Before we dive into it, here is a quick story about a great African traveler that you will enjoy.

An adventure at every turn

2021 is a year of uncertainties. Of not being able to make too many predictions. Of risks. It’s a year that seems made for adventure. And at Baboo, we believe that great walks are always great adventures. They are, after all, an adventure at every step. That’s why we want to propose 5 great routes in 5 beautiful countries of the world. We’ve put together 5 itineraries where you can enjoy, step by step, the landscapes, people, history, culture and gastronomy of 5 unique countries.

To motivate you, we’re going to first tell you the story of a great traveler: Ibn Battuta, the African answer to Marco Polo. Born in Morocco, Ibn Battuta traveled nearly 75,000 miles in the 14th century through almost all the Muslim countries of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It was an odyssey that took him 29 years of his life, in which he had time to live countless adventures and to marry and divorce ten times! A pioneering traveler with an unwavering passion for exploration, he had only one rule in his life: “Never travel any road a second time”.

“Only in adventure do some people succeed in knowing themselves, in finding themselves.”

André Gide
