My name is Karen Fenton and I am Simon’s Sister in law.
On the 26th May 2017 Simon was tragically killed in a road traffic accident near Dakar. As a family we are completely shocked and devastated at the awful loss.
Simon was an inspiration to us all and lived his life to the full.
The Little Baobab will continue and is still welcoming guests from across the globe.
Khady is managing the day to day arrangements in Abene.
RIP Simon…you were amazing.
The Little Baobab: traditional “teranga” in Abene, Casamance, Senegal
Teranga is a Wolof word, meaning hospitality or welcoming generosity. It’s one of the many things that makes Senegal so special in my eyes.
Experience teranga at the Little Baobab in the heart of West Africa and the home of myself, Simon Fenton, and my Senegalese family.
I host guests and lead tours across the region. I’ve also written two books: “Squirting milk at chameleons” and “Chasing hornbills.” My wife Khady is a traditional Diola dancer and loves nothing more than teaching her craft as well as drumming.
