Senegal

Swinging Beaches and Safaris

Senegal JOURNEYS

Africa close by!

Senegal , a sun-drenched holiday destination on the African west coast, is still unknown to many (Dutch) tourists. It is an ideal destination for a short, varied trip to Africa. On the coast lies the African Riviera, including fashionable seaside resorts and picturesque fishing villages on elongated, quiet beaches. Senegal is home to world-class national parks. Take Djoudj - one of the three most important bird sanctuaries on earth - or Niokolo-Koba with its savannas unique to West African standards and populated by nearly a hundred species of mammals including lions, leopards and elephants. Don't forget the Bassari , a colorful tribe that still lives as it did centuries ago, the former slave island of Ile de Gorée , a World Heritage Site, and the colonial Saint-Louis with its regattas and jazz festival that became the largest in Africa. Add to this the bustling capital Dakar with markets, museums and music bars, an ever-friendly population and the omnipresent 'teranga' – African hospitality – and we only have one question: what are you waiting for?

OUR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES

mr. Jansen and Mrs. Vlaar

Dear Untamed Traveling team,   We have good memories of this relaxed trip (luxury of our own driver/guide). We are very positive about Djoudj, which is an incredibly beautiful water area with many birds. We saw several species of kingfishers, egrets, fish and sea eagles, snake-necked birds, pelicans (about 4,000) and much more. We were very lucky that we were on a boat with few other travelers and there was a guide from the park who was perfect for spotting birds.   The village…

The boat trip, with the Bou el Mogdad, was more than I expected  suggested:  nl more trips and a lot of information about the history of the  villages and their inhabitants.  The taxi ride from Dakar to St. Louis was immediately Africa, while we  view from a comfortable position.  Then a carriage ride through St. Louis.  The guide, Ansou, of the boat, is a walking encyclopedia, he was  informed about everything and told the beautiful and less beautiful sides,  such as the construction of the dam…
