Travelling through the maze of the bolongs, these mangrove-lined inlets, by pirogue is a must in the Sine-Saloum and Lower Casamance regions. Take advantage of this peaceful moment to observe egrets, ospreys, or other shorebirds, and plan with your guide a walk on one of the many islands that line the bolongs. If you are numerous, you can rent a private pirogue with a guide. Count around 60 000 FCFA for the rental. Otherwise, guides propose specific walks for a more reasonable price
