Chasing Hornbills: Africa from the ground up

Preorder here

The Little Baobab is the home of writer Simon Fenton and his partner, Khady Mane and their children. It is  an African farmhouse powered by solar energy, with an eclectic alternative library, hearty seasonal food fresh from the organic garden, music and dancing around the campfire, shady jungle hammocks and some chickens.

As well as running a lodge, we lead treks throughout the region as well as arrange drum and dance courses and much more.

Scroll down to read the latest news from Abene or check out the menu above if you wish to stay with us, to buy either of Simon’s popular books about life in West Africa, to view images and videos or simply to say hi. 

We hope to hear from you and perhaps see you here in Senegal one day soon.
