Two Day Tour To Zighinchor & Cap Skerring


Ziguinchor (also called Zinguinchor) is the capital of the Ziguinchor Region, and the chief town of the Casamance area of Senegal, lying at the mouth of the Casamance River.

It is the second largest city of Senegal, but largely separated from the north of the country by The Gambia.

Ziguinchor remains economically dependent on its role as a cargo port, transport hub and ferry terminal.

The “Nationale 4” highway crosses the Casamance River just east of the city, linking the region with Bignona about 25 km to the north, and (via The Gambia), the rest of Senegal.

A number of buildings in the town have classified by government decree as historic, including the cathedral of Saint-Antoine de Padoue, the Grand Mosque of Santhiaba, the cemetery and several government buildings

A vibrant tourist destination, the beaches of nearby Cap Skirring were discovered by foreign tourists in the 1960s, and the location was built up to become one of the first Club Med resorts.

It is a popular seaside resort with Europeans and has an airport and a golf course.

Apart from sun worshipping, you can go cycling, fishing or explore the local culture, which has an exotic African flavour.

The Casamance region, in southern Senegal, is renowned for its awesome beaches, its beautiful river scenery and its lush tropical forests.
