Welcome

As soon as you arrive at our hotel-lodge, a breathtakingly immense and untouched landscape unfolds before your eyes. You are in Toubacouta, Senegal, right in the middle of the Saloum Delta.

Unesco World Natural Heritage

This area is unique in its natural and wild beauty and was recently included by Unesco in its World Natural Heritage List of protected biosphere reserves.

What is more, the “Delta du Saloum” was adopted in 2011 in the very exclusive “Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World”.

Situated in the protected Saloum Delta National Park, the hotel is perched on a high point overlooking the mangrove and a large sound offering an unforgettable panorama.

African Amazonia

Far away from Dakar and its hectic life, visitors looking for genuine Africa will enjoy the pirogue rides in the mangrove.

Home to hundreds of different bird species, no wonder why the place is also referred to as African Amazonia!

Our hotel-lodge is indeed a typical ecotourism place where you can enjoy nature in really deserved comfort. Here, leisure includes mostly fishing, bird and wildlife watching.

Keen photographers will benefit from the natural beauty and sunlight of the Saloum Delta.

Our Local Piece of Paradise

At our hotel-lodge we highly value our guests and we strive to give them an unforgettable time during their stay. That is why our hotel gardens are given the utmost care so that you can get the best of tropical flora.

A superb lawn planted with coconut palm-trees and other species will be a unique playground for your children and it sits just next to the giant tortoises’ enclosure.

Our Service

At our lodge, the European manager speaks several languages. In the high season, he is in charge of a staff of 50 people who will do their best to make you feel at home and enjoy your stay in an African surrounding.

The Rooms

The 37 comfortable rooms, containing quiet air-conditioning, individual shower and toilet, can accommodate up to 130 guests. They are tastefully arranged in African-style bungalows scattered throughout a 7-hectare park with numerous trees and flowers.

We also offer 5 family rooms which can each accommodate 4 guests in great comfort.

This building called “Les Tisserins” is fully equipped with solar energy.

Let us not forget our 6 comfortable suites, providing a unique sight on the mangroves.

We called them the “Lamantin du Saloum” because of their shape, but also because of the scarcity of this loved mammal (the manatee or “sea cow”), still present in this part of the Saloum Delta.

The “Lamantin du Saloum” offers comfort and space as each 70 square metres suite also includes a balcony overlooking the mangrove.

Facilities

The cascading swimming-pool and sun terrace are next to the bar where you can enjoy a drink.

The restaurant and bar

The restaurant building is opened on each side, providing a natural air conditioning, overlooking the mangroves.

The cuisine is diversified and pays tribute to French, international and African specialties, making this place famous in Senegal. We even serve our hot mangrove oysters once a week.

The round-shaped bar is the place where you will enjoy a cocktail and socialize after a day spent discovering the surroundings.

The panoramic terrace

From our unique 200 square meters panoramic terrace, equipped with comfortable armchairs, deck chairs and hammocks, you will enjoy a splendid view over the mangroves and our typically breathtaking African sunsets.

The meeting rooms

We have two meeting rooms with excellent acoustics, sitting over 30 people

These rooms are available, free of charge, for your meetings, incentive trips, congress or residential gatherings.

Wifi

WIFI is provided free of charge in the common parts of the hotel. 


At our hotel-lodge, 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.

You will see our wildlife, as well as the locals, climbing up the palm-trees in order to collect the “palm-wine”. For those who feel like it (and are fit for it) we have arranged various excursions on foot.

We also own exclusive camping sites on islands or on the ocean shore on superb fine sand beaches where you can enjoy long walks, swimming, surf cast fishing, barbecues and, of course, sun tanning.

We have issued a special brochure listing our excursions which we can send you on request.

Our personal favorite:

You will have an early morning departure (5:30 am) in a 4WD vehicle to the savannah next to the Gambian border at Baria or Koular. We find it necessary to get there before sunrise in order to spot the flight back home of night birds and bats.

You will marvel at a spectacular African sunrise while doves start cooing as the daylight gets more intense…Thousands of egrets quietly move to the meadows where they can feed. All this while the red sun slowly climbs up in the sky and village men ride their donkey or ox-drawn carriages to the fields for the daily work.

We then slowly take the direction towards the hotel by the off beaten track, stopping and chatting with the locals in the villages and hamlets, busy with their daily activities in the shade of the mango trees.

By 11 am we arrive back at the lodge where you can let all the numerous expressions you encountered that early morning sink in. 

Birdwatching and Ecotourism

Our hotel-lodge is located in the heart of one of Africa’s most beautiful ecosystems. What’s more is that this huge territory covers about 200,000 hectares. With its intimate blend of sky, earth and sea it has been the subject of several national and international protective measures. Therefore, this ecosystem deserves our protection as well. In fact, how could someone possibly spend a holiday in the Saloum Delta and not experience its natural and ecological assets?

Birdwatching

Our Hotel-Lodge is the place for ecotourism in the Saloum Delta area, therefore we created a birdwatchers’ society called “Les Rolliers du Saloum” in charge of organizing regular birdwatching trips for visitors or birdwatching organizations. Kindly ask for the Rolliers du Saloum’s catalogue which we shall send you.

Because we have this beautiful environment available we are offering total immersion in this huge natural aviary where you can see, day and night, the many inhabitants of this pristine ecosystem.

Scientists agree on the fact that the number of bird species to be seen in the Saloum Delta is impressive.

We have several skilled guides to accompany you on foot, in our four-wheel-drive vehicle, on board of our pirogue or to a watchtower. All this to help you discover the numerous and colorful species around.

Key features

This area is unique in its natural and wild beauty and was recently included by Unesco in its World Natural Heritage List of protected biosphere reserves. 

There is more: The Delta du Saloum has been adopted in the very exclusive Club of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World.

Situated in Toubacouta in the protected Saloum Delta National Park, located 270 km from Dakar, the hotel is perched on a high point overlooking the mangrove and a large sound offering an unforgettable panorama.

The 48 comfortable rooms (air-conditioning, individual shower and toilet) are tastefully arranged in small African-style bungalows scattered throughout a 7-hectare park with numerous trees and flowers.

A new building, which counts 6 comfortable suites, each 70 m2 big, balcony included, provides a unique sight on the mangroves. We called it the Lamantin du Saloum because of its shape, but also because of the scarcity of this mammal (the sea cow), still present in this part of the Delta du Saloum.

Situated at the side of the cascading swimming pool, the restaurant offers both traditional cuisine and African specialties.

Seen from the bar's panoramic viewpoint, sunsets are a stunning and unforgettable experience.

The 14 motorboats and canoes, each one of which is perfectly equipped to take you out for a small excursion or to go fishing, are ready for you at the landing stage.

Those wishing to have a truly African experience will enjoy the canoe trips in search of kapok trees, thousand-year-old baobabs, or a never-ending beach of fine sand worthy of a honeymoon.

A dense network of small islets and narrow stretches of sea are home to a multitude of fish species, mammals and birds, such as fish eagles, pelicans and pink flamingos. And it isn't exceptional to find yourself in the company of a pod of dolphins.

In the bushes of the savannah you will spot several red apes (Patas) of green apes (Cercopithèques).

This immense natural aviary, which has been called the Amazon of Africa, is a genuine treasure for Eco-tourism and will delight any person seeking a holiday that combines a green retreat with a more than respectable level of comfort.

The region offers also excellent outings on foot, in a four-wheel-drive vehicle or on a mountain bike, and gives you the opportunity to experience the kind of tourism that favors contacts with the highly colorful and very welcoming local population.

Are you still seeking for a good reason to buy a hotel in Toubacouta, where 40 years ago the hotel decided to establish, where calmness and security prime, where respect is insured, day and night, thanks to our guardians, here is no aggression, no violence and no theft.

To be convinced, you have to hear it, the dominating silence of the mangrove, disturbed by improvised djembé (tamtam) concerts.
