Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary

The Senegal River and surrounding wetlands host pelicans, pink flamingos as well asb many thousands migrating birds.

Reviewed By jeroma25 - Menlo Park, California

I spent 2 days being driven around the reserve with a local guide for help-Vieux Mamadou. Most people visit just for the boat ride to the huge pelican colony. Did that 9 years ago and this time tried to photograph as many new birds as I could while being close to watering holes for shore birds, going along savanna roads, etc. Found the chestnut bellied sandgrouse, crowned crane, black stork, long tailed nightjar and many others too numerous to mention.

Reviewed By B V - Saint Louis, Missouri

Rama Collection is THE clothing store in Saint Louis. Rama (the owner and designer) has a great eye for style and mixing fabrics. She has an excellent selection of stylish dresses, skirts, and tops along with purses and shoes. She also creates custom pieces if you have the time. Her shop is located just south of the mosque on the north end of the island. If you are looking for a great gift for a loved one or great pieces to take back as souvenirs, you must go to Rama!

Gandiol

Reviewed By kikekike - madrid, Spain

It came as a surprise, since Sahara is so far. But this is a small desert between saint Louis and the Lac Rose which makes for a great day. You don't really feel 'the immensity of the desert' but the colors, sand and feeling was similar to the real thing. The staff was very nice too. A thing we liked very much is that they allowed our driver for free accommodation and dinner

Le Camee

Reviewed By Ogotemmeli - Brussels, Belgium

Learn about Senegalese culture through its esthetic traditions! Textiles can tell you about history, structure of society, commerce, cultural influences. The space is not big, but don't rush through. Take your time to read the descriptions. If you are lucky, Maï - the person behind the institution - is available and can present the exhibition herself. Camée is related to the Tëss gallery and weavery which are also well worth a visit.
