Senegal, known as the “Gateway to Africa” is a beautiful country in western Africa. Located at the westernmost point of the continent and served by multiple air and maritime travel routes. The country lies at an ecological boundary where semiarid grassland, oceanfront, and tropical rainforest converge; this diverse environment has endowed Senegal with a wide variety of plant and animal life. It is from this rich natural heritage that the country’s national symbols were chosen: the baobab tree and the lion. Come journey to Senegal with us as we discover Dakar a lively and attractive metropolis, located on Cape Verde Peninsula along the Atlantic shore. A very popular tourist destination that perfectly combines culture, music, art, history and the many treasures soon to be discovered by you.

Gambia is a small West African country, bounded by Senegal, with a narrow Atlantic coastline. It's known for its diverse ecosystems around the central Gambia River. Abundant wildlife in its Kiang West National Park and Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve includes monkeys, leopards, hippos, hyenas and rare birds. The capital, Banjul, and nearby Serrekunda offer access to beautiful beaches.
