Matam is situated around 290 miles east of Dakar, the country's capital.
You should definitely take some time to relax and enjoy fun activities, such as shore fishing or bird watching. Both of these activities are popular with travelers and locals alike.
A visit to the water is a key part of most tourists' time in the area. Swimming and snorkeling are the most sought-after water activities.
The food in this area has its own special flavors, so make sure you give some of the local menus a taste test.
There's nothing like locally sourced ingredients. You'll soon find out that lamb and pea are go-to favorites in the region.
Be sure to taste-test some traditional food, like thieboudienne (fish, rice and tomato sauce) and yassa (spicy, marinated fish/chicken).
Make your mouth water with one of the area's delicious specialties, banana fritters.
At the end of your meal, you can enjoy sipping some fresh juice, a popular alcohol-free choice among locals.
Many travelers agree that one of the greatest gestures you can offer to the locals is to go to the trouble of memorizing some of their language. "Je viens de.." is French for "I come from..". There's also "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?", which translates to "What's your name?"
Visiting Senegal on the 4th of April offers you a first-hand account of Independence Day.
The unfortunate thing when it comes to vacations is that they always come to an end. Even though you might be bidding "Au revoir / À bientôt" to Matam, don't forget, it's always possible to return!
