Unencumbered by any industry or pollution, Centre Fagaru is suitable for travellers and groups with a particular interest for nature conservation and rural community development. Centre Fagaru welcomes students, researchers, school classes, youth groups and international travellers willing to contribute in various activities to preserve and protect the rich and diverse natural and cultural of the Saloum River Delta Biosphere Reserve, which is also designated as a UNESCO World heritage site and a wetlands of international importance for migratory birds.

We can tailor special programmes and activities - combining recreational and learning activities - for private companies, schools and organisations in search for experiential learning activities, team building and training in nature conservation and rural community development.

Tourists and day visitors can use Centre Fagaru as a base and we can make suggestions as to places worth visiting according to your interests.  In partnership with national park rangers and local partners, Centre Fagaru offers a wide range of excursions and activities to discover and learn about the unique natural heritage of the Saloum river delta and other sites of importance in Senegal and in The Gambia.
