Hello, I am traveling to Senegal in a couple of weeks, and I intend to visit Saint Louis. I intend to use the city as a base and make one or two day trips from there. I was wondering what places you recommend me to visit this way, leaving the city early and returning there to sleep. I am specially interested in Podor, but in the maps it looks a little far away, is it possible to go there and back the same day? if not what other places you recommend me?
I'll be in St Louis around beginning of feb with my fiance. I really want to visit Mauritania and I found a company called Sahel Decouverte who do 1 or 2 day excursions into Mauritania about 50/90 Euros. I contacted them. But they only do one for a minimum 4 people. So if by some amazing coincedence there was at least 2 other people in this city beginning of feb who wanted to visit Mauritania that would be great, We could arrange it all together. Otherwise I have to go and take my chances.
