Many people know the island of Gorée in the bay of Dakar and its fabulous beach lovers. Yet the beautiful Saint Louis, located further north, nearly 300km is a region as exceptional to discover. Near Saint Louis, the Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary (PNOD) has been classified as World Heritage by Unesco since 1981  . With an area of ​​16,000 hectares, 395 bird species (nearly three million birds) are listed making it the 3rd largest bird sanctuary in the world, perfect for the responsible travel.
