Our story

The story of Les Palétuviers is a love story. That of a family and the Saloum Delta.

Love at first sight

It is in 1995 that Jean Pierre Pieters discovered Senegal as a tourist. He fell for the exceptional nature and the warm population. It is love at first sight, and he decides to take over a hunting camp in the most beautiful bay of the Sine Saloum Delta.

He fights through all the challenges, gaining the friendship and respect of the inhabitants of the bay, and a few years later, the campsite has become a charming hotel: Les Palétuviers. Jean Pierre wanted to provide a window into the real Senegal for people from all over the world.

The best of both worlds

Jean Pierre died in 2006, but his love story continues to grow. Karolien, bitten by the same love bug, decided to continue her father’s work.

Karolien stands for responsible and sustainable tourism in full harmony with the local population and nature. The woman from Ghent went to live in Toubacouta and learned the codes and traditions there. She brings together her European background and African culture in a beautiful balance. The hotel thus breathes the best of both worlds.

Luxurious oasis

The hotel is a luxurious oasis of experiences, and Jean Pierre’s window into the real Senegal is now a breath-taking 360° panorama.

Experience it.


Mijn eerste keer op het Afrikaanse continent. Verrassend, kleurrijk en prachtige natuur. Hotel gelegen aan unieke mangrove bossen. Lekker gegeten, nette kamers en super ontvangst. Aanrader!

Fantastisch hotel met prachtig uitzicht. Ideaal om tot rust te komen en werkelijk te genieten van de natuur, gastronomie en de vriendelijkheid van het personeel. Pure verwennerij. Als je er eens geweest bent wil je terug! ❤❤❤
