The CAMPEMENT LE LAMANTIN facing the majestic river Casamance offers you the unique chance to escape the usual tourist routes, surround yourself with the spectacular nature of mangroves, forests, river, beach and rice fields and watch the mysterious MANATEE, an aquatic mammal that can only be seen in very few parts of the world. It is perfect for a relaxing stay in nature while you can discover the traditional life of an authentic fishing Diola village, Pointe Saint-Georges.
“Beautifully located property run by local people. Wonderful long beach with palm trees and mangroves (but when the tide is under water), nice for walking, watching crabs, swimming (at least if you don't mind the cloudy brown water) and looking for manatees. Yes, we actually saw them! : o) "only" brown backs appearing briefly, but where else do you have the chance to see African manatees ?! (There is a small tower from where you can easily watch them. Swimming is prohibited there.) The place is also perfect for shrimp lovers. They come with every meal and they are really delicious. But the food is not very varied. If you stay for several days, you either have to be a really big shrimp fan or have a meal somewhere else. (There is not much in the area, but there is still a camp with a restaurant nearby (unfortunately we only discovered it too late ...)). The footpath to Mlomp is very varied and beautiful. I can also highly recommend the tour to the viewing platform on a kapok tree in the nearby forest! Was much more spectacular than expected. All in all, great accommodation with hospitable, committed people in a really wonderful place!”

“We really enjoyed our stay with Pierre-Louis and his family and we even stayed one more day! Geneviève stayed specially at home to be able to welcome us despite our last minute booking. The place is very clean and quiet, the breakfast excellent with real coffee and homemade jams. Pierre-Louis explained all the things to do in the area and even organized a superb canoe trip. Little Lohan made us smile. Thanks again for everything! Isa & Mehdi”

“Thank you to Marine, Loko, Fatou, little wild child Lola and friends for a very pleasant 2-night stay in Ziguinchor. Their house is full of laughter and we felt instantly welcome. We had lunch with the family both days, eating in the traditional way from one plate, and breakfast outside which was also lovely. We also did a load of washing (long overdue!) Extra thanks to Loko for picking us up from the port when we first arrived.”
