Our charming hotel is situated in the beautiful Kafountine region of Casamance in southern Senegal. We welcome you in our area of several acres in a natural setting: the heart of a forest of palm trees surrounding a lagoon, forming a veritable bird sanctuary - 140 bird species recorded to date, and at the same time edge of the Atlantic Ocean and a beach almost deserted stretches for 15 km ... deliberately limited to a capacity of 20 people staying in our lodging is certainly place under the sign of Charm and Nature in atmosphere of tranquility, away from mass tourism, vacation safely to the discovery of an Africa and an original character region, Casamance, to the rhythm of a small fishing village, Kafountine, door Karon entry Islands, accessible only by boat through a maze of rivers and mangrove, a kind of Amazonian African ... The Franco-Senegalese-Guinean-Ivorian of Esperanto Lodge will be happy to show you Kafountine and villages of the island untouched and preserved. When time meets space by giving you the pleasant sensation being "at the end of the world" ... Welcome, Kassoumay! Eric & Justine

Way off the beaten track, this is a very special place. We wanted to get away from the Gambia and found this online. A lovely three hour drive into very different rural surroundings then down a very long windy track took us to the lodge....More
