Sine Saloum in the west of Senegal at the mouth of the Saloum River is one of the area's most popular attractions the Saloum Delta National Park, designated a UNESCO Heritage Site, covering nearly 150,000 hectares.
It’s safe to say the Sine-Saloum Delta is nothing short of spectacular and will give you an opportunity to peek into this wild and disorienting expanse of saline bolongs, lofty palms, gnarled baobabs, surreal shell islands, ancient burial mounds and a bewildering stretch of mangroves.
Aside from the Saloum Delta National Park, take time out for a visit to the town of Toubacouta one of one of the delta's most beautiful spots. Enjoy the stunning sunsets, mangroves and colourful birds providing a serene backdrop that always has something going on.
Off its coast, Toubacouta boasts another World Heritage Site, an island made entirely of shells with an ancient baobab tree, and in the evening, enjoy a nighttime stroll under the starts.
