Senegal - The country of Teranga, the art of hospitality
Near the laid back traditional villages, relax on the beaches, dotted with hundreds of colourful wooden pirogues. At the deltas of the Casamance and Saloum Rivers, the coastline is broken up into a maze of thick mangroves, tiny creeks, wide lagoons and shimmering plains. A pirogue trip through these striking zones reveals hundreds of bird species, from the gleaming wings of tiny kingfishers to the proud poise of pink flamingos. Whether you want to mingle with the trend-setters of urban Africa, or be alone with your thoughts and the sounds of nature – Senegal is the place to be.
