National Park Langue de Barbarie
The Zebrabar is situated in the middle of the National Park Langue de Barbarie. From the Zebrabar you can take a 90 minute boat tour and observe the diverse birdlife.
On a Pirogue the tour brings you to one of the breeding islands where you can see pelicans, cormorants and pigeons.
You can also take one of our canoes and paddle to the bird islands and discover the nature on your own. If you feel like, you can also walk over the sand bank. Miles of empty sandy beach invites you to relaxing walks.
National Park Gueumbeul
On the way from St Louis to the Zebrabar is the National Park Gueumbeul.
Gazelles, oryx, turtles and monkeys are easy to spot in this 700 ha Park. The monkeys are sometimes jumping over the fence and you can see them on the road.
National Park Djoudj
The second largest bird sanctuary in the world (16,000 ha) belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage and is situated about 60 km north of St Louis, towards the Mauritanian border.
Ornithologists and birdwatchers can discover the beauty and diversity of the African birdlife. The 1 hour boat trip brings you to one of the islands where each year thousands of pelicans breed and nurture their youngsters. Along the waters’ edge you should also see varanus, crocodiles, wild pigs and if you are lucky the odd python.
The Desert of Lompoul
About 50 km south of the Zebrabar between Kébémer and the Atlantic Ocean are some wonderful sand dunes. The Lodge in this lovely setting invites you to experience a night in the desert – in case you haven’t driven through the desert before coming to the Zebrabar. You can also experience riding a camel.
