The WoodPecker Hotel Resort is ideal for people transiting through the airport who need to stay over for a night or too as well as those moving further afield such as to Casamance and other parts of Senegal.
If you’re a nature lover then make a pre-arrival arrangement to visit the nearby Abuko Nature Reserve or the Tanbi Wetland National Park, or the Lamin Fish / Ostrich Farm with its plentiful bird life, Lamin Lodge and go on a river cruise. You can also pick up a locally made souvenir at the Abuko Pottery Center.
