The departure for the excursion to the Djoudj National Bird Park will be at 7 am for the delight of the early risers. The circuit will begin with a classic canoe ride; with your binoculars you will be able to see: white egret, cormorant, African eagle, warthog, pelican, etc.
If you’re lucky, a crocodile might even stick its head out of the water to scare you! Then, you will go for a walk and visit the various observation points of the park such as the big lake or the watchtowers that allow you to observe pink flamingos. A passionate guide will teach you the well-kept secrets of Djoudj which are not on the agenda of many visitors.
In the shade of a Guent observation post, you will stop to enjoy a good picnic. In the early afternoon, you will resume the road and you will make a first stop near a small village for a last hike in the less scorching sun, which will be followed by a second stop by the river for an aperitif at the Lampsar lodge. You can enjoy fresh fruit juice, a cold beer or just water with fresh air that will bring the temperature down. Around 5/6 p.m. you will be back in the old colonial island, Saint-Louis.
Optional: during the dugout canoe trip in the Djoudj, you can privatize your dugout canoe to enjoy the landscape in a small group. Consult us for the supplement.
