Located in Toubakouta in the Sine Saloum South region of Senegal, the highlight for many at Keur Saloum is the panoramic terrace, where you can relax 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, including fishing, picnicking on a deserted beach or exploring a local village along the river.
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.
