About the tour

the reserve of community interest of Somone is located 70 km south of Dakar. It is a site that polarizes the attention because of the battle of the riparian populations to save it from the multiple assaults of the too-rapid urbanization linked to the seaside and tourist activities of the locality. The objectives of its creation are the preservation of the ecological integrity of the lagoon, the promotion of sustainable local development. It is therefore a bewitching and soothing trip aboard a local boat to discover this natural treasure that is the Lagoon of Somone
