Package Itinerary

Departure from the hotel after our breakfast, for a tour in the depths, to discover the daily life of the peoples in their villages

Our trip will be marked by a few stops to meet and discover.

We will stop at a village in Serrere to interact with the locals, then visit an African bush market in the surrounding area.

Authentic open-air market, and organized weekly, here the inhabitants come to buy or sell; and everything happens around barter.

We will walk from the cattle fair to donkeys, horses, sheep, cows and goats, to traditional medicinal herbs, for talisman. The other sellers will offer you products for your souvenirs. Next door are vegetables, dried and smoked fish

The Serrere, constitute an ethnic group of farmers and fishermen in Senegal.

Mainly Christians, the Serrere still keep their animist beliefs and are the guardians of the sacred grove.

Often in the bush, next to the Serrere, live their neighbors, the Fulani tribes, that we call the nomads.

This ethnic group can be found in many African countries, and their main activity is herding.

We will pass by the thousand-year-old baobabs with giant termite mounds for a better immersion through life in the bush

Our visits can be crowned, luckily to attend ceremonies or rituals.

We will then join Joal, a former Portuguese port in the 16th century and birthplace of Senghor, the first president of Senegal.

By a wooden bridge, we can access Fadiouth a small village installed on a pile of shells.

Walk in this traditional village of Serrere to meet and interact with the local populations. Visit the cathedral, the market place, the sacred baobab for libations and on another bridge join the mixed cemetery where Muslims, animists and Christians are buried side by side ...

By boat, return to the mainland and return to the hotel.

Visit on the way, a distillery with tasting of palm wine or local liquor

We will have lunch if needed, and route back to Dakar.
