Partenza la mattina per la citta santa di Touba. La città venne fondata nel 1887 da Cheikh Amadou Bamba in persona quando, in un momento di estasi sotto l’ombra di un grande albero, ebbe un’esperienza mistica. Proprio per questo decise di erigere qui la città destinata a diventare simbolo del Muridismo e, in generale, di tutta la spiritualità senegalese. Nemmeno il nome è casuale ma è ancora una volta da legarsi al profondo spirito di fede e di Islam che aleggia su questo luogo incredibile. Tuba, infatti, in arabo vuol dire “felicità, estasi”, oltre ad essere il nome di uno degli alberi del Paradiso coranico dopo la visita proseguimento verso il delta del Saloum

formato dai bracci di tre fiumi. Il sito comprende canali di acqua salmastra e quasi 200 isole e isolotti, mangrovie, un ambiente marittimo atlantico e un bosco secco.

Il sito si trova nella zona costiera a nord del Gambia e occupa una parte significativa del delta di Sine-Saloum, un labirinto paludoso di mangrovie e bolonghi. Giro in barca allo scoperta di questi bei canali di acqua e mangrovie. Cena e pernottamento in pensione completa presso al lodge le paletuviers oppure Keur Saloum o similare
