1.0 out of 5 stars Très décevant June 6 2011
Je n'ai pas aimé ce livre du tout. Il ne représente pas la réalité du Sénégal (je n'ai pas visité Ganbia). La réserve des perroquets n'est que des oiseaux (ou plutôt des perroquets) en cage. Il y a des oiseaux en liberté tel que des pélicans, un marabout et quelques autres espèces mais avec les plumes des ailes coupées, alors les oiseaux ne peuvent pas volées. La même chose pour la réserve des tortues. Les tortues sont dans des enclos. Dans les deux cas ça ressemble à des zoos et moi je boycotte les zoos. Donc j'étais deçu de la présentation de ces deux réserves.
En plus quand on regarde la section de la faune et de la flore, il n'y a pas beaucoup d'information sur la faune et la flore du Sénégal alors que c'est un pays qui possède plusieurs espèces endémiques.
Je n'ai pas non plus aimé l'organisation du livre et beaucoup de mots clés manquent dans l'index ce qui rend parfois la recherche de l'info difficile. Alors je ne le recommande pas, sauf c'était le seul livre que j'ai trouvé sur Amazon sur le voyage au Sénégal.

4.0 out of 5 stars As complete as it can be May 11 2013
By Bruce A. Ishikawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lonely Planet's "The Gambia & Senegal" is as complete as a guidebook can be. We travel a lot and usually do our planning with information found online. But this is our first trip to West Africa and we found most of the info available was from personal blogs, which are interesting but don't have the wide variety of knowledge we need, or the standard travel booking sites which are useless for anything more than flight and hotel selection. There are some info sites, but these are not well-organized or comprehensive.

"The Gambia & Senegal" had the answers to all our basic questions about Senegal, and was written in an easy-going, easy to read manner. Further investigation into particulars shows that some of the content is obsolete, a standard drawback to printed books, but the book does give a good detailed overview of geography, customs, culture, history, the cities, where to stay and eat and what to expect as a visitor.

This book provides a good framework for trip planning. It's also small and light enough for us to carry along.
