Learn to make homemade vegetable bouillon cubes with local ingredients

Industrial bouillon has radically transformed the diets of millions of people in West Africa. As more and more families use industrially-produced bouillon cubes, traditional recipes that used on local aromatic herbs for flavor and nutrition are being forgotten, and dietary habits have changed for the worse. 

In the Casamance, a group of women has preserved their traditional recipes and techniques for flavoring classic dishes, and they are excited to bring these recipes back to life as they share them with you! With this experience, you’ll have the chance to discover this ancient, unique recipe, preparing your own homemade vegetable bouillon. 

The experience takes place in an open-air workshop in the garden of a local organization, and will conclude with the tasting of a classic meal flavored with the local bouillon and shared with your fellow participants and local farmers and producers. 

The benefits of being able to make your own bouillon are not to be underestimated: not only does it save money, but you’ll also discover the pleasure of having created a healthy and nutritious delicacy for you and your family!

Nyaguis: How to get there

If you enjoy “do-it-yourself” travel, we recommend taking public transportation. The village of Nyaguis is located 15 minutes from the city of Ziguinchor.

Getting to Ziguinchor, from Dakar:

– Dakar – Ziguinchor Ferry

There is a boat from Dakar twice a week on Tuesdays and Friday. It departs Dakar around 8 pm and arrives at the Ziguinchor port the following day around 10 am. Boarding takes place between 3 and 6 pm on the day of departure. 

Departures from Ziguinchor take place on Thursdays and Sundays at 1 pm, with arrival scheduled in Dakar the next day around 7 am. Boarding takes place between 11 am and 1 pm on the day of departure. 

You must reserve your ticket in advance: 

In Dakar, visit COSAMA (Consortium Sénégalais d’Activités Maritimes) on Boulevard de la Liberation N°1 (on the corner of the street leading to the port), next to the Gorée Island Embarcadère. 

Dakar Office: 0022133-821-29-00   Ziguinchor Office: 0022133-991-72-00 

E-mail: cosama@orange.sn

To reserve (available by agency), please prepare a photocopy of your passport. 

Fare per person: circa 15,500 FCFA for a couch; 18,500 for a bed in the 8-person dorm; 28,500 FCFA for a bed in the 4-person dorm; 30,500 FCFA for a 2-person private cabin. There is a restaurant on board. 


-Taking a 7-person shared taxi (sept-place) 

From the Dakar taxi garage (Gare Pompiers / Beau Maraichers), take a “sept-place” that goes directly to Ziguinchor. It is important to leave very early in the morning because the trip takes about 10+ hours. The price of a seat in a sept-place car is 9,500 FCFA, with an additional 500 – 1000 FCFA depending on luggage. 

NOTE: The car passes on the Transgambian Road; some passport-holders may need a visa and/or to pay a transit fee to pass through The Gambia. 


-By plane 

There are daily flights offered by Senegal Airlines; flights depart from the Dakar airport and land at the Ziguinchor airport.
