Must see attractions in Casamance

  • Sights in Oussouye

    Mlomp Musée de la Tradition Diola

    Set amid towering kapok trees on the main road between Oussouye and Elinkine, this striking case à impluvium houses an exhibition dedicated to Diola culture. A guide on hand can explain some of the rustic, crafted objects: hoops used for climbing palm trees, baskets that serve as fish traps, mortar and pestle for making palm wine, and shields made of thick hippopotamus skin.

  • Sights in Ziguinchor

    Alliance Franco-Sénégalaise

    This is easily Ziguinchor's most stunning building, a giant case à impluvium (a large, round traditional house) decorated with blindingly busy South African Ndebele and Casamance patterns. Inside are exhibitions, a large concert hall (shows take place at least once a week) and a welcoming restaurant and bar (with a weekday lunch special for CFA1000).

    The city's post office is one of Central Ziguinchor's colourful colonial buildings. Although you can go inside, there isn't much to see at the small postal center.
