3-Day Private Tour to the Casamance Region from Dakar
Casamance is the area of Senegal south of The Gambia. It is a region of large rivers and sacred forests of kapok and palm trees. Casamance is Senegal's breadbasket and home of the Diolas, one of the tribes that has most preserved the purity of its animist African customs. The Diolas are also considered Africa's best architects, proof of which can be seen in the way they build their houses. You can visit a Diola village on fascinating Carabane Island. Casamance is also home to Cape Skirring with its superb beaches and ideal year-round climate. Morning pick-up from your lodging.
