    Hakuna Lodge is the ultimate relax place, surrounded by pure nature you will find your peace here. Reaching it via boat and carriage or "speed" boat was easier than expected and has some adventurous flavour. The meals are served in a community place were you get together with the other guests and meet nice people like we did. The food was european with a regional touch (pasta with fish). Boat tours etc. can be organized by the host and cost extra, hiking the island is beautiful.

    The chef at Hakuna Lodge makes it totally worth the time there. I spent 4 days there and it was wonderful just to do nothing! I strongly recommend taking the Horse-drawn Bourette Ride through all the villages. Tout était absolument magnifique! La cuisine est carrément cordon bleu!

    We had a great stay at the Hakuna Lodge. It is a wonderful tranquile place full of birds. The hosts are very welcoming and charming people. A place for those looking for an extraordinary location in the hart of the Sine de Saloum delta. There are many ways to reach the Lodge, by car is not one of them so choose between a fast boat, a local boat or a passage over the island with a horse carriage. It is well suited for couples as for families with small children. Contact the Lodge for details on the transfer from Dakar.

    (Translated by Google) Honestly, if you like tranquility and nature, this Lodge is for you. Plus the staff is so friendly. I ate there fish delivered the same day by local fishermen. Try the adventure, you won't regret it. (Original) Franchement si vous aimez la tranquillité et la nature, ce Lodge est fait pour vous. En plus, le personnel est tellement aimable. J'y ai mangé des poissons livrés le même jour par des pêcheurs locaux. Tentez l'aventure, vous ne le regretterez pas.

    An amazing weekend get-away from the daily routine of life. The short boat trip to the island was fascinating, as we saw the islands of Sin Saloum. Once we arrived on the pier, the workers were very welcoming and helped us with our luggage. The rooms are comfortable and include outdoor seating too. The open air shower was a real delight. Food was absolutely delicious - fresh fish and delicious side dishes. Fishing is a major activity at Hakuna Lodge, fishing rods are available at your disposal and you won't have a hard time catching anything! I really felt at one with nature and it was a truly relaxing experience.

    One of the most peaceful and inspiring places in Sénégal! The place is super clean, the food is delicious and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. In the middle of the nature with a small beach and crystal clear water. I definitely recommend and will go back

    Great location in the heart of Sine Saloum , nice beach The service is however a bit limited and not so flexible compared to their price standards. Moreover keep in mind that to get there you need to pay 20,000 f for the pirogue on top.

    (Translated by Google) A corner of paradise, surrounded by nature. A nice getaway far from the hustle and bustle of Dakar. Simple and comfortable houses. Such a nice team that does everything to help you discover the surroundings: mangroves by canoe or pirogue, walks in the small surrounding villages. The chef prepares delicious, very fresh meals! Fish every day! I already dream of going back. Thank you for this perfect stay! (Original) Un coin de paradis, en pleine nature. Une belle échappée loin de l’agitation de dakar.

    (Translated by Google) I have spent several stays in Hakuna, the last being in December 2022. The place is incredible, one of the most beautiful spots in Sine Saloum.

    (Translated by Google) Totally relaxed weekend. Tired of the forgotten week. Want to just dive into the water. Sleep quietly. Play with the children in the playground, zip line, trampoline. Quiet boat ride. Fishing party whenever you want. Meals at the super simple table d'hôtes, multiple encounters. Walk in the village: visit by cart, local meetings. Full of life before returning to work in great shape. (Original) Week-end total relax. Fatigue de la semaine oubliée. Envie de juste plonger dans l'eau. Dormir au calme. Jouer avec les enfants dans l'aire de jeu, tyrolienne , trampoline. Balade en bateau tranquille. Partie de peche quand tu veux. Repas en table d'hôtes super simple, multiple rencontre. Balade au village : visite en charrette, rencontres locales. Plein de vie avant de reprendre le boulot en pleine forme.

    (Translated by Google) It was a nice stay that my friends and I had in July. The setting is simply magnificent. We are in an ecolodge so do not expect luxury. I really enjoyed the outdoor outdoor shower. It looked like an adventurer. The food is just as good. The beach is great. Over a long distance it is not deep and almost no water current. There is the possibility of taking walks in the mangroves, discovering the salt wells and many other things (but extra). You just have to watch out for the mosquito at night and see ants appear at night too (harmless) but they don't really bother you. We are in the middle of nature Dc let's be indulgent :) Also since we are far from the city (on an island) it would be necessary to do these urgent shopping before going there because once there it will be difficult. It's a nice place to disconnect from the stressful city and fully enjoy nature :) (Original) Ce fut un beau séjour que mes ami.e.s et moi avions passé en juillet. Le cadre est tt simplement magnifique. Nous sommes dans un ecolodge du coup ne nous attendons pas a du luxe. J’ai beaucoup apprécié la douche extérieur en plein air. Ça donnait un air d’aventurier. La nourriture est tout aussi bonne. La plage est top. Sur une longue distance elle n’est pas profonde et presque pas de courant d’eau. Il y a la possibilité de faire des ballades dans les mangroves, découvrir les puits de sel et bien d’autres choses (mais en extra). Il faut juste faire attention au moustique la nuit et voir apparaître la nuit aussi des fourmis (inoffensives ) mais elle ne dérange pas vraiment. Nous sommes en pleine nature Dc soyons indulgents :) Aussi vu que nous sommes loin de la ville (sur une île) il faudrait faire ces courses urgentes avant d’y aller car une fois sur place ça sera difficile. C’est un bel endroit pour se déconnecter de la ville stressante et de profiter à fond de la nature :)

    Wonderful lodge on the Mar Lodj island in Saloum delta. Only accessible by speed boat or pirogue (arranged by lodge). Lots of activities, village visits, mangrove trips, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking etc. Set menu mostly seafood at a communal table.
