Your experience


Joal has a history which goes back to the Portuguese occupation of the 15th century. A particular house of interest is the one in which the first President of Senegal late Leopold Sedar Senghor was born.

One of the characteristics of Fadiouth is that all houses are made entirely of sea shells and pounded shells are used as cement.

Take a traditional canoe trip to the famous cemetery made of sea shells where both Muslims and Christians are buried, the first one in history. Visit the crop store built on the water, then proceed to the small catholic mission run by the nuns and interact with the local population.

At the end, visit the largest baobab tree in the country that has magical healing qualities.
