  • Cultural place to visit when coming to Mayotte. It recounts the cultural harvest of salt in the commune of Bandrélé. These "mamas shingos" are really brave and hard-working because it requires it.

  • C a very interesting place to visit. Not only can you see shingo moms in action, but you have the opportunity to participate too. C a difficult job and that requires bcp patience but c also very informative. I encourage everyone to come by whether it's for a visit or a purchase. Besides I find the prices very reasonable according to the work done by these moms there.
