  Piroque trip
by sachara

The best way to visit the area of the Casamance river is by pirogue.
The ecological environment is impressive: a labyrinth of creeks and islands with mangrove, palm groves, swamps, forests and estuary vegetation.
In the dry season there are millions of migratory birds.

Directions: South west part of Senegal, south of the Gambia.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
