Responsible travel in Senegal
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.
