The Djoudj Birds Natural Park
Departure in the morning at 8 AM from Saint-Louis to reach the Djoudj (3rd ornithological reserve in the world).
After the entry formalities, you will be able to see during the 7 km of tracks that separate from the pier, warthogs, monitor lizards and some birds. Then we will embark on pirogues for a visit of the backwater.
Observation of thousands of pelicans, African cormorants, ducks… with a bit of luck small crocodiles on the bank. Return at 1 PM.
The departure for the excursion of the Djoudj National Bird Park will be at 7 AM for the greatest pleasure of early risers. The circuit will start with a classic pirogue ride; equipped with your binoculars you will be able to see: white egret, cormorant, African eagle, warthog, pelican, etc.
If you are 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 large lake or the watchtowers that allow you to observe pink flamingos. A passionate guide will whisper to you the well-kept secrets of the Djoudj that are not in the program 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 hit the road again and make a first stop near a small village for a last walk under a less stifling 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 simply water with a fresh air that will lower the temperature. Around 5/6 PM you will be back in the old colonial city of Saint-Louis.
Optional: during the pirogue ride in the Djoudj, you have the possibility to privatize your pirogue to enjoy the landscape in a small committee. Consult us to know the supplement.
