Here, the ground and water mix closely. At the junction of Sine and Saloum, the arms of the sea infiltrate between the islands out of shells. The mangroves braid a vegetable crown above bolons. An area to be discovered in pirogue, at the hour when the birds bicker themselves to find their nest.
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 around the Saloum islands 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.
