Wonderful getaway from Dakar and Saly! Quiet, except for the lapping of waves on the beach and the hundreds of birds nesting on the grounds. Spacious clean rooms. Best food I've eaten in Senegal! Comfortable without aircon in hot season because of the open air construction and river side location. Great for families, small groups, adventure (and not so adventure)... More

My friend and I stayed one night at La Bazouk on our way to the Ecolodge. I wish we had stayed longer! It's a beautiful set up, with small cottages and a common dining area. It also has a games room, which would have been fun if we had more time (and a trampoline!) The food was excellent, and they... More

Beautiful and friendly lodge with big clean rooms by the river. Very good food (set menu) and breakfast. We received the wi-fi signal in our room. As an added bonus, the 30 minutes boat trip from N'dangane takes you through a mangroves area with plenty of birds, passing really close to black, grey and goliath herons. Only downside, to say...

It’s a shame the older reviews on Trip Advisor still stand although this place has been under new management for two years. The prior owners lived offsite and only came once a week to deliver supplies while guests were left to the local staff. The new owners, Pierre and Veronique, live onsite and work hard to ensure guests are looked... More

I was sadly only at Bazouk du Saloum for one night, but it was fantastic. The owners are very involved with the running of the bungalows. It was quite a trip from Dakar with public transport - an experience in itself. If you are two or more, I would recommend asking them to organise you transport. The Bazouk is comfortable... More

Veronique and Pierre, the new owners of Bazouk du Saloum (since last September) have developed this little haven of peace and tranquility into something really special. The jetty off the beach is the perfect spot for sundowners over the mangroves along with a twinkle of a solar-lit lantern. Justin, the restaurant waiter is always ready for an off-the-cuff conversation and... More

Highly recommended! We booked two cottages for 3 nights in the Sine Saloum delta not knowing what to expect. We extended our stay for another two nights. It is that good. The bungalows we had were right on the banks of the river with beautiful sunset views. Each day you can sit and watch the river traffic pass by. Very... More
