Our Expert Opinion
"In this peaceful Senegalese haven, I felt away from the world. There were plenty of friendly staff in the background, always ready to give a helping hand. It was bliss."
- Nina, Sales

Soak up the panoramas and local life
Located in Toubakouta in the Sine Saloum South region of Senegal, the highlight for many at Keur Saloum is the panoramic terrace, where guests can relax in comfortable chairs or hammocks and take full advantage of the views of the river meandering into the distance.
Away from the busier tourist areas, here you are perfectly placed to discover the real Senegal and its amazing bird and marine life. Keur Saloum’s varied excursion programme also enables you to explore the local area easily: this includes making use of its many boats to take you fishing, out for a picnic on a deserted beach or to explore a local village along the river. You’ve also got Fathala Wildlife Reserve just a 20-minute drive away, where you can embark on a game drive, or why not consider it for a twin-centre holiday?
Enjoy traditional African accommodation
Set amongst the well-kept grounds are 48 African–style round bungalows, surrounded by numerous shady trees, aromatic shrubs and flowering plants. Each bungalow is individually decorated, offering a simple yet comfortable base for a relaxing holiday. For an extra special location overlooking the jetty and the river, we suggest upgrading to one of the spacious suites, which are beautifully decorated, with a lounge area and an extensive private terrace.
In the evening, the open-plan bar and restaurant is a great place to relax and swap stories with others about your day, whilst enjoying freshly cooked food, which is inspired by French cuisine and locally caught seafood. French is the main language in Senegal, however some of the staff will be able to communicate in English.
Transfer time from Banjul to Toubakouta: 3 hours
The transfer from Banjul includes a river crossing of approximately 40 minutes, border formalities and then a short road transfer. You can combine Keur Saloum with any of our Gambia or Senegal hotels; if only staying at Keur Saloum, your first night will be spent in The Gambia.
As in any destination, we would not recommend walking in remote areas after dark.
