SENEGAL
Senegal is the westernmost country on the African continent with an area of just under 200,000 sq km. It is largely flat, with a natural vegetation of dry savannah woodland. The shore of the Atlantic Ocean marks the country's western border. Dissecting the whole country nearly in two is The Gambia.

CASAMANCE 
Casamance is the region south of Gambia.

The region of Casamance is generally said to have the best climate in Senegal. Thanks to its tropical climate, a prominent characteristic of the region is its lush vegetation, which we are sure you will appreciate on walks in the bush.

In the far south is the Casamance River, which gives its name to the surrounding Casamance area, a fertile zone of forest and farmland. It features a labyrinth of picturesque creeks and lagoons and is dotted with small islands and areas of palm grove mangrove swamp.

Senegal's most beautiful beaches are also here in the Casamance region. You will be able to lie on an endless sandy beach, swim in the azure sea or meet the local fishermen who land a variety of fish every day. 
Its friendly and welcoming inhabitants will make you feel at home from the very first day of your visit.
