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.

What customers say

About Virtual tours

— I have twice visited Mali and both trips were special experiences. Africa is “different” and has much to offer. When you mentioned you would tape and offer virtual tours, I felt excited, and was wondering if I would like it. Having seen the “Manding Tour” I am even more excited. Good guidance, beautiful nature, waterfalls, and routes as you can only experience in Africa; impressively bumpy. The tours are more than worth the money spent. I am looking forward to the next one(s). Keep up the good work!

About Books

— Just another Camino book? No, this time I was pleasantly surprised. Monique managed to turn 'her' Camino in an intriguing, almost exciting book. It is about the walk, and also about love, self-image, doubt and grow. A very personal story, made accessible for a larger crowd.
