The village of Toubacouta, Senegal (population, approx. 3,000) is 300 miles south of capital city of Dakar.
Isolated by its geographical layout, the village is self-contained, thus rich in culture and local flavor. Toubacouta is located on a mangrove delta where there are plentiful fish, lobsters and oysters in the region making this location the perfect place to fish. Thus, the local town's mainstay relies on fishing.
Toubacouta is not located along the typical tourist circuit of Senegal which makes it extremely appealing to visitors looking to be entrenched in the Senegalese culture without feeling like a tourist. the villagers are friendly and welcoming, as well as curious, making it the perfect and safe location for foreigners to explore this wonderful area.
Les Paletuviers, considers this the real Africa - as it opens her doors to us once we visit.
