This trip to the Saloum Delta National Park is the ideal way to discover Senegal's stunning natural beauty. You will even take an amazing ride in a motorized canoe!
Saloum Delta Trip
Once we have collected you from your hotel in Dakar, we will head southeast towards the Saloum Delta. Arriving at the small fishing of Ndangane, you will stop on the banks of the river, where a motorized canoe will be waiting for you. These amazing vessels are the typical form of transport for inhabitants in this area.
Once we are aboard our boats, we will take a ride along the beautiful Saloum Delta, in which the Sine and Saloum rivers converge and flow into the Atlantic Ocean. As we cruise downstream, we will admire the magical landscapes filled mangrove swamps and palm trees. You will also see various species of exotic birds such as magnificent pelicans.
Later, we make a stop so you can take your own time to have something to eat in one of the park's restaurants, where you can try the delicious traditional Senegalese cooking. Rested and recharged, we will head to a Niominkas village. This tribe is related to Serer ethnic group and they live on the islands found along the river dedicating their lives to fishing.
Our trip to the Saloum Delta finishes back Dakar where we drop you back at your hotel.
