"Sine Saloum National Park" Parc National du Delta du Saloum by grets

The delta is formed by the confluence of two rivers (the Sine and the Saloum) into the attlantic. There are many lagoons and small islands fringed by palms and little fishermen villages which you can visit. The biosphere reserve is a wild, beautiful region which extends over 180 acres. Mangroves are dominant, but sand dunes, open forest on sandy soils, coastal waters and sand islands also characterize the area.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting village life
  • Cons:Some of the local people were very aggressive and hostile
  • Last visit to Parc National du Delta du Saloum: Feb 1996

    Thought provoking page of this less travelled destination. Interesting to ponder why locals are not friendly to tourists. Great pictures of the people there. Wish I were there... Cheers, SL :)

    I enjoyed reading about your trip to Senegal, since I'll be going there for the first time in five weeks. Looks like a beautiful place.

    You captured such beautiful people photos Grete, I love the dusty road sunsets too. Sorry to read some were not as friendly as they should have been. Wonderful page though (~_~)

    Grets, did you ever try the dried mussels. Are they eaten just like that, or used in soups or stews? Pa

    Great page and tips,Grete. I dislike pushy salesmen also and buy elsewhere. You mean you washed off your red tan?

    Lovely advice and photos Grets... esp re those pesky salesmen! One's not obligated to buy anything, ever. Thanks!
