The historic town of Joal-Fadiouth is located to the southeast of Dakar, on the tip of the stunning Petite Côte coastline. Discover it for yourself when you take our amazing trip during which you will also visit a traditional Serer tribal village.
Joal-Fadiouth and Tribal Village Trip
We will collect you from your hotel at 9 am in Dakar and hop into a 4x4 vehicle to begin our fantastic tour of Senegal's Petite Côte coastline. Our first stop is a tribal village of the Serer people, the third largest ethnic group in the country.
There, you will get a taste of the inhabitant's traditional way of life when you discover the local houses, schools, and shops. You will also visit a local market where you will encounter traditional products, handcrafted by the tribespeople.
After visiting the tribal village, our trip continues at Joal, a settlement discovered by the Portuguese in the 15th century and the birth city of the first president of Senegal, Leopold Senghor. We will take to the fishing port, one of the largest on the Petite-Côte coast.
Later we then go to the neighboring commune of Fadiouth crossing a wooden bridge that links both localities. During our tour, you will find out why both settlements historically united. On the other side, you discover the Fadiouth lies on an island of clam shells.
We will visit the Cemetary, which is home to the remains of both Christians and Muslims. You will also learn all about the history of the baobab tree, which stands there in homage to the deceased. You will also encounter a pretty traditional church.
Then we return to Joal. If you want, you can paddle there along the waters of the Atlantic in a canoe (optional). Our tour finally comes to an end in Dakar where we will drop you back at your hotel.
