Sine Saloum is a region in the northern part of Senegal in West Africa. In the west of the region is the Saloum Delta, at the mouth of the Saloum River and the Atlantic Ocean. One of the area's most popular attractions is the Saloum Delta National Park, a UNESCO Heritage Site which covers nearly 150,000 hectares.
Small minibuses, known as 'Sept-places', operate between Dakar, the capital of Senegal, and Sine Saloum. The distance between the two cities is around 190km. You could also choose other forms of bus transportation, but by far the Sept-places are the most comfortable for the nearly 4-hour journey.
There are several places to visit in the Sine Saloum region, aside from the aforementioned Saloum Delta National Park, which is full of birds and other wildlife for nature lovers to enjoy. A visit to the town of Toubacouta is worth it, as it's arguably one of the delta's most beautiful spots.
In the vicinity of the region is Foundiougne, a quiet village that has maintained that rich traditional look through the years. The buildings are old and mango trees all over the streets. Some other villages around you can visit are Missirah and Dionevar Island.
