02Langue de Barbarie National Park

If you want to see Senegal's wildlife, visit Langue de Barbarie National Park. Located on the peninsula that separates the Atlantic Ocean and the Senegal River, the park is an essential home for the local bird population. But its wildlife claim-to-fame is the critically endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. You can easily book a tour from nearby Saint-Louis.
