TOUBACOUTA, FATICK REGION, SENEGAL, WEST AFRICA

I really like big metropolitan areas, and try to enjoy coming back to Hong Kong, New You are able to, and Sydney-among many more. What about individuals unknown gems which are from the beaten tourist path… individuals obscure places just waiting to become explored by real travelers?

Our “Mini City Guides” are here to discover individuals gems, and we’re searching to the favorite explorers-AONC readers-to provide us the interior scoop.

Important unique?

Ancient trees, lovely people, great fresh foods, and also the tranquility to be near the water. This small (6,000 person) resort town sits around the Sine-Saloum delta (where dolphins, ocean horses, manatees, along with other fish find home or go through throughout the season). It’s large enough to locate something totally new every single day, and sufficiently small where per week lots of people is going to be calling you by name on your stay.

Important special for you?

I’ve spent the final 2 yrs like a Peace Corps volunteer living 11km out of this town. Individuals are diverse from the remainder of Senegal. Quiet, relaxed, with absolute hospitality (teranga, the wolof word for hospitality, is Senegal’s middle name) and since it’s a little taken care of, it’s never overrun by vacationers.

You will find small restaurants the locals goes to in the morning, dinner and lunch (Restaurant Pam, Adama Sy’s). Chez Boom includes a French-trained chef while offering a periodic menu with fresh fish, and an array of wine and beer. The 2 hotels and number of campgrounds (Senegalese KOA, one room cabin/hut with simple amenities that’s simpler around the wallet) offer great food and beverages.

Where are you able to kick your ft track of an excellent mug of coffee?

Here the thought of American style coffee doesn’t exist. Senegalese style coffee shop touba (think dark and sweet spiced coffee) can be bought in the pub from many vendors. Attaya (a sweet, strong eco-friendly tea) is generally made within the mid-day to nights while chilling out and speaking with buddies, and it is provided to any friendly face passing by. Be cautioned-attaya may take a couple of hrs for that three models you’re likely to consume, and you will not sleep for some time after consuming it.
