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

The Domaine Les Paletuviers Hotel is located in a quiet and tranquil area next to a saltwater bolong and is an ideal place to relax and unwind or to use as a base to explore the surrounding region.

The 58 simply furnished rooms are housed in either thatched roofed bungalows or buildings scattered amongst the trees in the spacious grounds. The rooms are a comfortable size and all have mosquito nets and air-conditioning.  Many of the rooms have been refurbished in the last year and Senegal Experience guests are guaranteed these rooms.

The restaurant has a lovely view through the trees down to the hotel’s jetty. Guests have a choice of dishes at lunchtime consisting of Senegalese and French cuisine and a set meal in the evening. The swimming pool and sun terraces are surrounded by gardens and daytime activities within the hotel area include table tennis and pétanque. There are also a number of pirogues and kayaks for exploring the local creeks.

The hotel is located on the outskirts of Toubakouta, a typical Senegalese village with a very friendly and hospitable population.  Simply walking around the village will give you a good insight into African life and will ensure you take home fantastic memories of your holiday.

Transfer time from Banjul to Toubakouta: 2.5 hours

Due to its location, it is easier to fly into The Gambia as the transfer times are shorter. The transfer from Banjul includes a river crossing of approximately 30 minutes. If only staying at Domaine les Palétuviers, your first night will be spent in The Gambia.

About the Local Area (Sine Saloum South)

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.
