“Comfy hotel in Ndangene, Saloum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I've stayed at the Pelican twice in the last 12 months while serving on a short-term mission team working in Djilas, about 30 minute ride by bus. We at the beginning of the rainy season, which means you might lose power briefly if a rain shower moves through, but the generator does kick in.

The staff have been wonderful to our teams of 18 (2012) and 12 (2013) respectively. In fact we have been almost the only hotel guests during our stay because it is not high season. We've been told that French tourists do frequent the Pelican during their "high" season.

Breakfast is prepared by Abdou. He will make crepes and omelettes to your liking. Dinner in the open air dining room always consists of two appetizer choices, 2 main dish choices (fish and chicken or beef) and 2 desserts (one is usually fruit). The rooms are basic including a small fridge and mosquito netting. The air conditioning works well unless you lose power.

Both years the hotel staff has prepared a large dinner party for us to entertain our Senegalese brothers and sisters (about 100 of us this year).

A small beach is accessible and a short walk will take you to the river's edge if you wish to book a river 'cruise'. We do!

We've found the hotel staff to be very accommodating and were told that they recently did an upgrade to the facilities; now they need more guests!

I very much looked forward to my return to the Pelican this year, and I encourage you to give it a try if you don't require 4-star accommodations but enjoy a comfy place for a fair price.

Room Tip: I like the pyramid-shaped pods, each containing four rooms - 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. I've s...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We arrived by boat, and this was the last hotel of our holiday with Explore. It was a nice hotel, but with a small pool. The two-story rooms were clean and air-conditioned with TV, and had good views over the Saloum Delta.

There was plenty of bird life nearby, with Thick-knees, Bee-eaters and sunbirds along the water’s edge and well as others nearer the village.

The hotel is in the centre of a busy local village, so plenty going on, with local shops and a few bars.

Room Tip: Drinks at the village bar on the water-front are much cheaper and a better location too.
