Our hotel offers a wide variety of activities and excursions which are all focused on the discovery and exploration of the region and its numerous and diversified inhabitants.
hotel-lodge Keur Saloum is located in the heart of one of Africa’s most beautiful ecosystems. What’s more, this huge territory covering about 200,000 hectares, with its intimate blend of sky, earth and sea, has been the subject of several national and international protective measures. It therefore deserves our protection as well.
Until the late 90’s the Saloum Delta area was one of the most abundant waters in the world. Fishing there usually meant pleasure and unique catch, even for beginners. Unfortunately overfishing, especially with processing boats off the Senegalese shores, was to blame for a sudden fall in term of fish.
At Hotel-Lodge Keur Saloum, when mentioning the Saloum area, biodiversity is all over the place and it is of course the theme of all our excursions. They include the discovery of fishermen’s villages in the various islands, picnics on desert sandy beaches, visits to local weekly markets, pirogue or 4-wheel rides.
