The Saloum Delta National Park or more commonly known as Sine Saloum is one of the most beautiful and atypical regions of the Senegal. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thus protected since 2011, the Saloum delta forms a subtle blend of humans and nature. There are many species of birds that delight ornithologists (heron, pelican, cormorant, flamingo, etc.), many land animals (warthog, hyena, monkey, duiker, jackal, etc.), but the Sine Saloum is also home to a huge number of marine animals. There are the large mammals that the inhabitants are content to watch, dolphins and manatees, but above all there are all those who have made it possible to feed and develop the region: the many and diverse fish and shellfish. The picking of the latter practiced for centuries has even formed over time numerous piles of shells contributing to the stabilization of the land and the preservation of this biodiversity even if it remains fragile. Today, tourism is an important new axis of development for this natural park, but the main activity is still by far that of fishing.

With its 52 islands, its area of 180,000 hectares and its dense vegetation, fully see the Sine Saloum and its ecosystem requires a lot of time in pirogue. Our day tour will allow you to have an overview of the delta and its landscapes while having a pleasant time, you can observe its birds, its mangroves, discover the traditional village of Mar Lodj. Our excursions of several days in bivouac will allow them to go a little deeper into this estuary to, for example, contemplate the arrival of fishermen in Djifer and its impressive collection of pirogues, take a hike in the mangrove through paths still unexploited by tourism, go in search of wild warthogs, cross baobab forests, meet pirogues craftsmen, etc.
