perhaps March isnt the best time to go as there were not many birds. However, the experience of walking through the mangroves is magical and the time on the boat was peaceful

Lots of birds and a tranquil place to be. Did a boat tour from Dangane. A nice day activity. Pricing was on the high end compared to other Senegal activities.

It was a nice boat trip. Not expensive and we had a nice guide. We have seen a lot of beautifull birds and some cool pelicans.

It´s been perfect relax. We took the boat and go over river about one hour and we were looking to pelicans and mangroves. It was started from Pelican hotel. When you have the time, this is great view of Senegal´s wild nature.

Loved the boat tour at la Somone. It was stunning with transparent water, and great for bird watching. I would definitely recommend it! We went to Sine Saloum afterwards and I think it was a nice complement.

If you come here,you must join boat tour to explore Somone beach.You can see various bird and absorbing places when you make it.so there is better to swim than Obama beach and close area.
