Kafountine isn't the only spot in this popular region worth seeing; visitors with plenty of time can also head off and experience the charms of the surrounding countryside, cities and cultural attractions. Interesting places in the vicinity of Kafountine are Ziguinchor, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northwest, and Kabrousse, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north.
Visitors longing for spots to learn more about local spiritual beliefs, will relish spending time in the area's mosques.
Mix a little learning with leisure on your travels by joining one of the area's popular wildlife safaris.
Take your tastebuds on an adventure through the culinary landscapes of Senegal. Lamb and pea are two of the much-loved ingredients. Why not order thieboudienne (fish, rice and tomato sauce) or yassa (spicy, marinated fish/chicken)? Both meals are popular in this area. Banana fritters is a local last course. Taste a fresh juice, an alcohol-free Senegal drink that is very common in Senegal.
Allowing time to know a little of French separates the true travelers from the tourists. "Je viens de..." is the French way to say "I come from..." One more interesting example is "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" (What's your name?).
You'll hate to bid "Au revoir / À bientôt" (farewell) to this memorable area.
