Senegal may not offer the most sumptuous landscapes in Africa, but it has unforgettable sites that will bring you a total change of scenery. Senegal boasts national parks, like that of the Djoudj, north of Saint-Louis, rich in birds of all kinds; the islands of the delta of the Saloum; the Casamance region where one gets lost with delight in a network of bolongs, in the mangroves. And for those who do not wish to get too tired, its pleasant beaches, lined with lush and varied vegetation, will completely seduce any weary traveller. One of the assets that makes this country particularly endearing is its cheerful, communicative and welcoming population.
