It was a real joy to stay (10 nights) at the garden of the Lampsar Lodge, nicely situated at the riverside. Nothing is too much trouble for Mme Andrea and her staff. Everything works, the food is good (especially the 'Soupe de Poisons'), the rooms are quiet en comfortable.. Every evening at sundown hundreds of Herons and Egrets fly in to take take their night shelter in the wet lands just across the water opposite the lodge. As for more birding: the direct surroundings of the lodge may at first sight not seem promising but allow yourself to be surprised! Of course an excursion to Djoudj birding reserve is mandatory).
This place is a little slice of heaven. Its location, right on the banks of this wide, quiet river, made for an incredibly peaceful two-night stay. The breakfast was probably the best we've had in Senegal and the owner (I think) was very friendly. Rooms had lots of thoughtful touches and we spent hours chilling out by the pool.
Calm and cosy place next to the river with garden bungalows and spatious swimming pool will make you happy forr sure. And coming off the season means you could have the whole "campament" just for yourselves. Supernice and very friendly staff. You can enjoy tasty food either inside the restaurant or eat outside and watch the river on a jetty. Breakfast is no doubt the best we had in Senegal! One almost doesn't need any food till the evening :) And having a Jacuzzi after dusk seems to be a little miracle in this corner of the world. Although the location and facility itself is beautiful, it's a bit far from the Saint-Louis (ca. 45 mins drive). But if you haven't got your own car, the staff would willingly arrange a taxi (fair price) for you.
Just a small reservation on the menu - it's a bit too European and you may miss a choice (at least some) of local dishes. Restaurant is slightly more pricey than comparable Senegalian facilities.
Great location, near Djoujd National Park, on the river bank. Bungalows are very comfortable and clean. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Diners were real feasts.
very nice hotel at wondeful location - close to the highway yet completely peaceful and quiet. the perfect spot to explore Djoudj national park and Saint Louis from. Very friendly and helpful people, both the French proprietors and the local staff
