Casamance

Casamance means the house of the chief or king , it is a region with a lot of diversity. Human wealth, joy, spontaneity of a people, exceed the borders of the African continent. The visitor will be captivated by the splendor of a wild nature, the smell of the earth and the bright colors. By a sun that bows every night to the horizon of the sea. It is the land of palm trees and rice fields, islands and mangroves, savanna and forest. It is the crossroad of cultures and beliefs to the rhythm of Ekoting, Diambadong, Bougarabou, Ekonkon, etc

 

Oussouye

It is a small rural town located between the city of Ziguinchor and Cap Skirring, on the Atlantic coast. It is also the town where you have to change from 7place (popular taxi) on the way to Mlomp or Elinkine (small port of departure to the islands). With a strong diola and animist tradition, many ceremonies are held which will leave no one indifferent!
One of the main tourist attractions is the visit to the king of Oussouye but we also recommend visiting the fruit, vegetable and fish market or strolling through the palm forest until you reach Edioungou, a town famous for its pottery and its handmade mango, lemon, strawberry, etc ice cream.
The Casamance region is very flat, so we also recommend that you contact the Casamance VTT that organizes bicycle tours.

 

About us

We are a couple formed by a Catalan and a Senegalese (Cristina&Bakary), accompanied at all times by our dog Asembe.
Since 2 years ago we are settled in a town house that, little by little, we have been renovating to make it our home.
Bakary works as a taxi driver or private driver and can take you wherever you need: on an excursion, to the beach or back to the airport.

I will prepare your breakfast every day and I will try to make your stay in our home as comfortable as possible and if you want I can suggest you multiple excursions to do or even organize them for you.

I will buy the bread every day at the village boulangerie and we can accompany it with chocolate cream (the famous Senegalese chocopain ) or natural jam made in the cooperative of peasant women of Oussouye. Milk, coffee or tea will complete breakfast together with seasonal fruit (bananas, papaya, watermelon, ...)
