Senegal is a country you already want to come back when you leave it !
We already went there separately many times and we wished to return together.
In winter, Senegal is a hotspot for winter visiting birds in terms of diversity and density. We observed 300 bird species in 3 weeks. If you avoid naps, it’s possible to increase the number of observations. We were lucky to meet again our friend Bram Piot, a Swiss ornithologist, who lives since a few years in Dakar and animates a very complete blog about ornithology in Senegal: http://senegalwildlife.wordpress.com
We warmly advise you to consult it before an ornithologic travel in this country !
To avoid long hours driving and to enjoy to a maximum the different visited sites, we limited ourselves to three costal regions. Discover them in a few words and may pictures by clicking hereunder:
- Djoudj National Park and Langue de Barbarie North
- Sine Saloum National Park South-West, just above Gambia
