Excursions Story

History of the Papayer Ecolodge Hotel Cap Skirring Senegal

Two years ago, the land of the Papayer Ecolodge hotel was only a strip of land between sea and rice field which only served the inhabitants of the surrounding villages to harvest firewood to cook. Over time, these samples have made the forest disappear. Since the start of construction in 2015/2016, The Ecolodge hotel has replanted many trees, plants and flowers ... around 250 on this one hectare site. Nature has taken back its rights. The stake was to safeguard and preserve this exceptional environment and its eco system to offer our guests an exceptional setting with all the necessary comfort and modernity. The constructions of the Ecolodge hotel meet European standards: electricity, septic tank, water supply and management, waste management. Today the bet has been taken to propose a quality accommodation in perfect harmony with our environment.

These exchanges make it possible to raise awareness of the "finite" resources that nature offers permanently and without taking into account that it is now necessary to preserve: creation of solar cookers, water conservation, counterproductive use of detergents and washing powders.
