The Domaine Les Paletuviers Hotel is located in a quiet and tranquil area in Toubakouta in the Sine Saloum South region of Senegal, 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 hotel has recently undergone a period of refurbishment, resulting in stylish decoration, furnishings and touches of comfort throughout. The spacious rooms are mainly house in thatched roofed bungalows or buildings set amongst the trees in the spacious grounds. An exciting new addition is the Baobab Suite, a treehouse giving you the chance to sleep in comfort amongst the branches of a baobab tree, with spectacular views over the water and the mangroves. Although most of the decor is kept to a cool, pale palette, the restaurant offers colourful, quirky seating. Here you can enjoy European and Senegalese cuisine complemented by French wines. 

The swimming pool and sun terraces are ideal for enjoying the sun and for the inquisitive there are guided excursions and a number of pirogues and kayaks for exploring the local creeks, as well as ideal conditions for birdwatching and fishing. Just walking around the village of Toubakouta will give you a real insight into Senegalese life and the chance to experience 'teranga', Senegal's famous hospitality.  

Transfer time from Banjul to Toubakouta: 2.5 hours

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.


In the Sine Saloum, many of the hotels have their own boats and offer specialised birding and fishing trips, as well as more leisurely trips along the river to deserted beaches.


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.
