Land of Teranga, in other words, the ‘land of hospitality’ is well known for the warm welcome of its people, but also for the beauty of its magnificent fine sandy beaches with sometimes translucent waters in some places. With its hundreds of kilometers of coastline and beaches, Senegal has many beaches from Dakar to Saint-Louis and from the Petite-Côte to Casamance. With guaranteed sunshine almost all year round and its privileged location on the African Atlantic coast, Senegal is recognized as the preferred destination for travelers in West Africa. Apart from its seaside side, Senegal has other surprising assets: spectacular nature and unique culture. Despite its small area, Senegal offers a very varied natural diversity, the North remains flat and desert, while the South and South-East are very wooded with small mountains on the border of the Fouta djallon of Guinea Conakry. This set of natural and cultural resources offers many advantages to travelers because all desires are there, between beaches and bolongs, mangroves and forests, national and reserved parks, mountains and savannas, all tastes are there for the pleasure of all.Senegal is also a country full of colour with its lively markets with a thousand scents and a thousand flavors. Colonial houses are present in the city of Saint-Louis or the traditional houses with thatched roofs. Observe the turquoise waters of the sea and the pink water of the unique Lake Retba. Admire the colorful traditional outfits of its inhabitants such as boubous in wax or bazin.

Why travel to Senegal?

To travel to Senegal is to enjoy an impressive culture and conviviality. It is to visit a country where you really feel at ease and where everyone lives together in full harmony and in a well-respected secularism. To the west of Dakar the Atlantic Ocean, to the north the Senegal River in the Saint Louis region, to the south the Casamance river, and to the south east the Gambia river, which all have their sources at Fouta Djallon in Guinea. Senegal offers a very rich flora, but also gives you a glimpse of the African fauna with safaris in parks or in animal reserves.
Senegal remains the holder of an extraordinary heritage, whether artistic, culinary or historical, so do not miss a visit to the island of Gorée, known for being the site of the House of Slaves.It is better to go in the dry season in Senegal, that is to say between November and May. The temperature is pleasant, not too hot, and precipitation is avoided. This is valid for the whole country, except Casamance where you can go all year round.

Commitment to sustainable tourism

Today responsible tourism is gaining momentum in Casamance and Eastern Senegal. Our approach is to develop ecotourism to invite people to engage in responsible tourism to the detriment of mass tourism. We always offer beach stops to allow travelers to relax and rest, but we go even further.We offer atypical stages in Senegal in a particular region, for its forest, its mountains, the rivers, the ethnic diversity, in short a lot of things are very different from the rest of the country and it is this type of local immersion that we allow you to discover Senegal from the inside. During your stay in a small camp built 90% with local products while respecting environmental and climatic standards, you will share the daily life of your hosts. This tourism that we organize for you allows you to create jobs, show the way to young people, and be able to organize small income activities in the middle of a society that lives only on agriculture and little breeding.
