Full For The Season

Reserve

This hotel is bookable online via our sister website, The Senegal Experience.

Offering guests the best of both worlds with white sandy beaches bordering a blue ocean and the delights of the nearby rivers and bolongs,Delta Niominka is a unique hotel situated on the island of Dionewar, just a 20 to 30 minute boat ride from the mainland, at the mouth of the Sine Saloum Delta.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DELTA NIOMINKA WILL BE CLOSED FROM THE END OF APRIL 2014 TO UNDERGO A MAJOR REFURBISHMENT, WITH PLANS TO RE-OPEN IN 2015.

With the same owners as the popular Lamantin Beach Hotel in the resort of Saly, Delta Niominka offers its guests extremely comfortable accommodation and good cuisine in a spectacular location – the Sine Saloum Delta is a UNESCO World Heritage site - and is a superb choice for those seeking natural beauty, peace and tranquillity.

The spacious, comfortable rooms are set in cottages amongst the colourful gardens, all decorated in a modern style, but still very much in keeping with their African surroundings. Choose a beachfront cottage and you will open your doors directly onto the hotel’s stunning, white sandy beach.

The atmosphere here is perfect for a relaxing beach holiday - the two pools, one with a Jacuzzi, are adjacent to the beach with fabulous views of the Delta and beyond. If you do want a change of scene, the private jetty has a selection of pirogues and small sailing boats for you to enjoy some sea or river fishing, bird spotting or even for just a leisurely cruise relaxing and topping up your tan whilst taking in the wonderful surroundings.

Transfer time from Dakar to Dionewar:

About the Local Area (Sine Saloum North)

The Sine Saloum Delta is an 180,000-hectare area that encompasses the Saloum Delta National Park, and is a truly stunning part of Senegal.

Formed where two rivers converge on the mighty Atlantic Ocean, it's a region of great diversity consisting of a unique estuarine environment, glorious beaches, mangrove swamps, sand islands and ever-shifting dunes. The region is a joy to explore, and whether you're picking your way in a personal horse drawn carriage through the great herds of baobabs and salt-craters dug by the local women or quietly navigating the lush greenery of the labyrinthine waterways in a pirogue you're sure to absorb the region's gentle magic.

Thanks to its ecological diversity it is also rich in animal life, and for birdwatchers, the Delta will also not disappoint; home to a stunning variety of birds, such as flamingos, pelicans, herons, gulls, terns, egrets and avocets. Many of the hotels will arrange special birding trips to view them in their natural habitats.

For the fisherman, it is an angler’s dream with a wealth of fish in both the rivers and the ocean; you might even spot the odd manatee or dolphin in the coastal lagoon. Many of the hotels have their own boats or pirogues and offer specialised fishing trips, as well as more leisurely sightseeing trips along the rivers to deserted beaches and local villages.

Nightlife

As the hotels in the Sine Saloum Delta are a little more isolated, evenings are usually spent in the hotel enjoying a good meal and drinks in the bar, with occasional musical entertainment.
