Basse Casamance National Park

 
Basse Casamance National Park Forest, open savannah, mud banks and mangrove swamp. Access by road from Oussouye. Open all year round. Camping accommodation available. Animals living in the park include buffalo, bushbuck, duiker, hyena, mongoose, monkey, porcupine and a wide variety of birds. While this national park is one of the highlights of Senegal we recommend that you avoid it at this time as rebel activity has made it dangerous. The park is a preserve of forest savanna land and mangrove swamps. The diverse terrain provides homes for more than 50 types of animals including four varieties of monkeys 72 species of birds and the orycterope (a type of aardvark). The animals are generally difficult to find however. Still we felt compensated by...
 

Djoudj National Park

 
Djoudj National Park This spectacular park outside of Saint Louis Senegal allows you to travel through flocks of exotic birds, among other animals. It is worth a trip, but don't try it on your own. It forms a living but fragile sanctuary for some 1.5 million birds, such as the white pelican, the purple heron, the African spoonbill, the great egret and the cormorant. The ride from Saint Louis is off-road at times, and you'll need a pirogue tour once you get to the park. Your best bet would be to hire a complete tour from Saint Louis, which you can do at the visitor bureau. The best time to visit is Oct-April, when all of the migratory birds are there. In addition, the waters also hold populations of crocodile and African manatee...
 

Fadiouth

 
Fadiouth Fadiouth is an old fishing village close to Joal. It is situated on an island in a river delta with mangrove forests. No motor vehicles are found in the narrow streets in the village which can be reached on an 800 m long bridge. Most inhabitants are Christians (90%) and a new church was recently erected. The village is much visited by tourists and there are several souvenir shops. Peculiar to Fadiouth is that the streets and even the houses are built up of the remains of shellfish that were consumed throughout the centuries. Even the burial place (common to Christians and Moslems), which can be reached on another bridge, is built up of these remains which give the whole village a peculiar whitish character. The bu...
 

Saly

 
Saly Just one hour and a half south of Dakar lies the domain of Saly: 1,480 acres of trees, lawns, and exotic flowers surrounded by baobabs and fragrant eucalyptus. Twelve hotels are spread along the beach, each with air-conditioning, swimming pools, restaurants, and bars. Discos, a casino, a horse stable, a deep sea fishing center, a biking center and a shopping area are common to the hotels. To reach the golf course, you can walk or avail yourself of a fun ride in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. For windsurf, jet ski, water-ski, snorkeling, scuba diving, the ocean is warm and clear and the air, cooled by gentle sea breezes rarely exceeds the upper 80's. A perfect weather to play tennis, golf, or volleyball on the bea...
