“Friendly place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

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 can tell you stories about the history of Mar Lodj and its villages. The food is excellent and innovative - ask whether the ginger sweet potatoes will be on the menu! A group of women make and sell a variety of extraordinary jams (baobab, cashew apple, hibiscus, sweet potato). There are two bikes you can use (no extra charge) to visit the island and a variety of tours that include everything from shell islands to beach barbeques. They organised transport for us from Dakar - prompt, clean car.

If you've heard bad things about this place, it likely comes from the previous owners. Go on, give it another try!

Room Tip: Ask for a bungalow on the bolong.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

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 calm and tranquil. The staff are very friendly and the managers, Veronique and Pierre, are extremely responsive. The restaurant has fixed menus and the food is very good. It's basic, barefoot luxury. However, if you must you can charge your! phones and IPads, or get wi-fi in the restaurant/reception area. Solar lights and lanterns are used at night. The stars above provide the rest. There are a variety of river and village excursions to eco and community sites. Don't miss it!

Room Tip: The two corner cottages facing the river that seem the most private.
