Our story


Zebrabar is the alternative to ‘normal’ beach holidays. Directly on the sandy beach of the salt river Senegal we built a camping area, bungalows, a restaurant and a tower with a panoramic view, all respecting ecological criteria.

Our story

After a few trips to Africa we found this lovely place and started in 1996 to build the Zebrabar.Zebrabar is the meeting-point for Africa travelers. Whether on the north-southern or the east-western route,  you’ll get to Zebrabar and share the latest information for your trip. For all repairs on your vehicles there is a well equipped workshop and competent help at hand.Zebrabar is also for Ornithologists and Birdwatchers a unique destination located within the national park ‘Langue de Barbarie’, well known for its fauna abundant with a lot of different birds (pelicans, flamingos, etc.). The entrance fee for the National Park is 2’000 cfa per person, also for our guests, who stay for a night or longer.
The park can be reached by fishermen’s pirogue or with the Zebrabar’s kayak and canoes.The name ZEBRABAR comes from ZEBRA (stands for Africa) and NjagaBAR (which means Pelican in Wolof, official senegalese language).Our children, Samira (1999), Marco (2002) and Nora (2011), enjoy the freedom and are always looking forward to meeting traveling families. Together with our longterm staff, Anta, Binta, Khoudia, Rokhaya, Sokhna, Nafi, Pape, Karim, Saer and Koutaye we would love to welcome you and be your hosts. zebrabar-sig
