About

When tourism came to a standstill in 2020, Monique Teggelove decided to bring Mali to the world. With the Papillon Reizen team, she set to work creating virtual tours and experiences, which later resulted in founding Papillon Fairtrade.

Social entrepreneurship has always been a priority to Monique. Through fair payments and giving back to the people involved, the guides, cooks, artists and local projects benefit as well.

Papillon Fairtrade offers carefully selected and created products, including virtual tours and experiences, one-off necklaces made by Monique, and books about her travels.

Together we make the world a better place.

About Virtual tours Mali

— What a fabulous experience! I enjoyed two tours from this company. Both were marvelous and really helpful in helping me to understand a bit about the long cultural traditions of Mali. I found you because I searched for Mali online, thinking deeply about a storybook of Sundiata that I’ll be bringing to my 11-12 year old students in a couple of weeks. I felt a need to find more of an impression of a country that is so far from mine (Eastern Australia). I’m so glad I found these tours, because they not only gave me an impression of the sights and sounds, the climate and complexity of Mali, but also made me picture myself there and feel how amazing it would be to travel to Mali in person. Thank you to the tour guides and all the people involved!
