Casamance shares its name with its geographical location; it is situated in the south of the Gambia. It is often called "the granary of Senegal" because it is very fertile. Rice cultivation dominates there and the lives of many families depend on it. Many villages have their own vegetable garden and fruit trees abound, including mango, papaya and coconut trees. The mangroves that line the banks of the river and its meanders are home to an important fauna, many species of birds, monkeys, mongooses, monitors and much more. Sailing is the ideal way to discover this unspoiled part of the country.

The inhabitants are mainly Diolas, Catholics or Muslims. Very attached to their traditions, they know how to keep a strong cultural identity and maintain a constant relationship with the Earth and Water. To reach them, it is often necessary to use the inland waterways.
