Welcome to the
land of teranga


Senegal is a unique combination of good weather, culture, architectural heritage and natural attractions. This alchemy has given rise to the extraordinary aura of a universal and authentic country, whose exceptional value is demonstrated by the inclusion of many of its sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

From town to town, from village to village, the atmosphere follows on from one another, complementing one another without resembling one another, with a long-lasting tradition of smiling, openness to the world and the natural hospitality with which we welcome our guests.

Bandia reserve

Discover a true ecological success story: the Bandia reserve. This magnificent 700-hectare park features flora and fauna typical of the African savannah. A three-hour mini safari will take you through this little jewel, where you’ll come face-to-face with numerous free-ranging species: birds, patas monkeys, gazelles, giraffes, ostriches, Buffon’s cobs, antelopes, cape elands, rhinoceroses, savannah buffalo, giant tortoises, reptiles and many more. The tour is led by experienced guides who will pass on their knowledge and passion for African wildlife, and the history of the Serer pyramids and baobab tombs in the reserve.

Renaissance Monument

If you’re traveling through West Africa, and Senegal in particular, don’t miss the African Renaissance monument. As soon as you enter the Senegalese capital, you’ll easily spot this statue in the commune of Ouakam. Built on one of the twin hills overlooking Dakar, the monument stands 52 m high. Access the top of the complex, and you’ll enjoy a splendid view of Senegal’s marvellous coastline. The infinite blue evolves unperturbed, except for the horizon which seems to be asking it to stop. You’ll also enjoy an impressive view of the capital. An absolute must.
