Sine saloum, the bush and the markets

 

Sine Saloum is a natural region located in the North of The Gambia and south of the Petite-Côte in Senegal. Its area is 180,000 hectares and consists of about 200 mangrove islands. This region is a world-renowned reserve for the richness of its biosphere that includes more than 250 species of birds, pelicans, herons, kingfishers, flamingos, egrets, terns, teals, gulls and more.

This delta is formed by the confluence of two rivers, Sine and Saloum. It is also an inlet that lets salt water in more and more deeply into the land because the flow of both rivers is quite slow.
