Senegal Excursions

Reviewed By jezaal - Reading, United Kingdom

We left the Gambia via the ferry from Banjul to Barra on the other side of the river Gambia then over the border to Senegal. We drove to the animal park. We had to put a lot of insect repellent on as the park has some nasty mossies. It was nice to see animals in a natural environment with no preditors. It took ages to find the giraffes. Coming back to the Gambia on a smaller ferry really showed us the real Gambiam people. It was a good day out.

Went on 3 different tours with this awesome company during a weeklong trip to Saly Senegal.
1st excursion was a half day ATV trip all over Mbour with our awesome guide Babacar. Great time on that trip. He is very safe and ensured we enjoyed our tour. He speaks excellent English too.
2nd excursion was a full day trip with Amadou. We went from Saly to Dakar. We visited the Renaissance monument and Goree Island. Again, excellent guide, informative and very professional. He speaks excellent English too.
3rd excursion was a half day trip to a remote nomad village in Mbour. Once again we had Babacar as our guide. He was excellent. We brought the villagers some food we bought at the local supermarket in Saly prior to the trip. We also visited a local elementary school and brought snacks, School supplies and toys for the kids.
Great tour company! Definitely the best one in town! Julie the owner was always prompt responding to my emails. Pape was also very good with organizing our tours for the week.

Senegal Discovery

Reviewed By Isathep - Brest, France

Nous avons effectué avec notre fils de 20 ans un voyage d’une semaine au Sénégal fin février 2018. Nous avons partagé notre semaine en une partie farniente de 3 jours dans le Siné Saloum, et une partie itinérante les 5 premiers jours. J’ai pris contact avec Diokel car nous souhaitions voir plusieurs sites dans le confort sans perdre de temps sur un séjour si court avec les déplacements, les réservations d’hôtels, la recherche des points d’intérêt etc …
Je lui ai fais part de nos souhaits en lui laissant carte blanche pour enrichir le parcours. Après quelques échanges, le planning était prêt dans un budget raisonnable. Diokel s’est montré un guide sérieux, compétent, toujours de bonne humeur, et d’excellente compagnie. Le planning a été respecté et quelques surprises nous attendaient souvent en détour du chemin. On ne s’est pas ennuyé pas pendant les trajets en voiture car Diokel nous faisait part d’anecdotes sur les lieux traversés.
Il est certain que l’on a vu des choses que l’on n’aurait jamais connues sans Diokel. Sa présence nous a permis également d’avoir une meilleure intégration avec les habitants.
En résumé, Diokel est un guide jeune et dynamique, très chaleureux, avec une très bonne connaissance du Sénégal. Vous pouvez voyager avec lui les yeux fermés pour votre plus grand bonheur dans la découverte touristique du Sénégal en oubliant les contraintes logistiques. Nous étions très émus de nous quitter avec ces 5 jours extraordinaires de visite du pays.

Last summer I was in Saly with a couple of friends. We did some activities with Lamba tours and I always felt really safe and everything was well organized. Senegal is an amazing country with even better people, and I think is one of the best countries to meet Africa. Saly is paradisiac location where you can do sightseeing, meet people, eat good food and enjoy day trips to amazing places. Africa changes the way you see things! Thanks Marc and Guillem for the organization!

Village Artisanal de Saly

Reviewed By Alastair J - Ngaparou, Senegal

This is a good-sized crafts market in central Saly by the main roundabout with quite an array of attractive, hand-made arts and crafts stuff and African clothing.
The vendors are particularly persistent and tenacious with tourists so it is not to be recommended to new boys/girls to West Africa. You will be (verbally) accosted whether you're interested or not at every single stall you walk past, so get yourself mentally prepared before setting foot in the market.
Tips:
1.) Ideally visit with a Wolof/French-speaking Senegalese friend - if you have one.
2.) Ensure you have a good stock of low denomination CFA Franc bank-notes with you.
3.) Be patient, friendly and smile but above all be firm on what you're prepared to pay.
4.) Be prepared to take your time and haggle ruthlessly. Offer no more than a 1/4 or 1/3rd of the vendors' first asking price and don't budge from your initial price offering until the very end of negotiations (when you may increase your offer by, say, about 1'000F or 2'000F - according to the value to you of the item). You will always be able buy something at less than 40%-50% of the vendors' initial asking price.
5.) Never hesitate just walking away from a stall - if the vendor isn't approaching offering you a price you'd be willing to pay for an item.
Good luck with your visit...
