Eastern Senegal is one of the best kept secrets of the country. There, far from the touristic areas, you will enjoy the traditional African life of the little villages.

The Bedik, Bassari and Tenda people of the Kedougou area have jealously retained their customs, costumes and ornaments. They are hospitable and friendly. Their villages are perched on top of green hills, near waterfalls, in the middle of wonderful landscapes. The Bassari are renowned for their initiation ceremonies, complete with magnificent masks, which take place between April and June.

Lodges are available in Kedougou and Salemata.
