Just stayed the entire day for a quite moment of relax. Service is good and staff is incredibly kind and gentle. Of course this is a turistic attraction, very different from the real Senegal, but it's worth if you're looking for an all inclusive place.

Nice to see for anybody who like birds and nature. Take a one houre boat trip from behind Royal Horizon Baobab hotel restaurant (10€/person). Ask first when is the best time to go (the tide) and arrange the trip.

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.
