That same day I arrived in Tambacounda, and being over 40 degrees, checked swiftly into a nice hotel with swimming pool and airco.
Next day was spent visiting the Niokola Koba national park, which boasted having a good number of lions, but sadly, none showed themselves when I was there.

Cold beers and travel stories followed but both of us where struggling with the intense inland heat.

It was quickly decided we would go to the coastal town of Kap Skirat, and find a nice place to camp on the beach.
Kap Skirat turned out to be a real gem, while we saw many white's, mostly French pensioners owning a house here, it has retained it's authenticity, and just feels relaxed.
It's also has picture perfect beaches and beach bars.
A campfire on the beach accompanied by live music from our newfound friends Ibrahim and Anthony made this a true paradise.
Needles to say, we stayed a few days.
