Overview

This tour will take you 100 km away from Dakar, deep into the countryside.

First stop in a colourful, weekly market, where locals bargain for vegetables, fruits, animals, grains, and fabrics. We have diversified the markets that will be visited on specific days of the week: on Wednesday - Sandiara, on Saturday - Geniene, and on the rest of the days - Mbour. The rural markets are meeting places for sereres people, transforming into a bustling farmer's bazaar with unforgettable colours and atmosphere.

Tour in the market and continuation to Joal to have lunch in a local restaurant. Joal lies on the mainland. It is also the home town of Senegalese poet and first president Leopold Sedar Senghor.

Visit by foot of Fadiouth Island, it is linked by a bridge from Joal, lies on an island of clam shells, which are also used in local architecture and crafts; the cemetery where muslims and christians are buried side by side, the market, the church, the white alleys where wheel carts are ubiquitous.
