This tour allows visitors without much time to take advantage of two of the best birdwatching places in Senegal on a one-and-only day trip.

Departing and ending in Dakar, this tour leads to the Saint Louis area in the north and crosses Langue de Barbarie bird reserve to reach Djoudj Bird Park, the #1 birdwatching jewel in Senegal (#3 in the whole world!)

Of course a full day is needed to take advantage of the sites; we start early at 6 am and return at 10 pm. 

  • Physicality: Medium
    Physical rating

    From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.


    No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.


    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.


    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.

  • Culture shock: Low

From Dakar we travel to Diamniadio, then Thies. After a short breakfast stop, we continue to Kebemer.

We leave the main road to get into the bush and enter the Langue de Barbarie area. After another short stop, we board the pirogue to reach the best bird spots. This is a unique bird trek specifically designed for avid birdwatchers and specialists.

Lunch is eaten right in the middle of this picture of paradise. After lunch we continue to Saint Louis for very quick city tour (1h), and then to Djoudj Park, where a pirogue allows us to reach all the best bird spots.

Participant Guidelines

As usual for birdwatchers, bring your pair of binoculars, your camera (with lenses if you have),  sportive and light clothes, trek shoes.
