A region of contrast where the land and water blend intimately together, Sine Saloum is characterized by its hinterland, the groundnut growing basin of Senegal, and the Saloum delta -- a myriad of small islands scattered between innumerable "bolongs" (channels).

In the river region, during a canoe excursion round the islands of Saloum and Betani, one discovers a completely different landscape.

Bordered by white sandy beaches and having an extremely dense vegetation, these islands shelter, beneath coconut palms, small villages of fishermen, a people whose traditional hospitality enables you to share their daily life: fishing, canoe excursions, meals of mangrove oysters grilled over an open fire. The wildlife here is rich with birds of all kinds.
