Dakar and Goree Island, 1 Day

You will be collected at our prearranged starting point and begin the city tour of Dakar and vicinity starting at Independence Place in the centre of Dakar.  We will pass by presidential palace and the main cathedral before continuing on seafront drive towards Soumbedioune market and the mosque de la revelation.  This tour will reveal the contrasts among some upscale residential areas and other popular neighbourhoods You will visit popular hotspots like Kermel or Tillem market before visiting a popular highlight, the Monument de la Renaissance overlooking Dakar and the modern Museum of Black Civilization.

 

In the afternoon we will take the 20 minutes ferry ride to visit the charming yet infamous Goree Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the quiet streets flanked with multi-coloured houses reveal none of Goree’s sordid past.  Visit the “Door of No Return” through which millions of Africans passed on the way to slavery and listen to the curator as the history of Goree is brought to live. Here you will explore the    baobab-lined path up to the headland from where you can enjoy a panoramic view over the bay of Dakar. Cruise back to Dakar.
