Dakar & Gorée Island




Departure in the morning from the hotel for a city tour of Dakar, with a visit to the various points of interest in the capital: the African Remembrance Cathedral with its Byzantine-style architecture, the presidential palace with its red guards, Independence Square with its colonial-style buildings that compete with modern buildings, the railway station and its typical spice market. Pass by the large mosque of Dakar, with its imposing minarets, which brings together thousands of faithful every Friday. Visit the artisan village of Soumbédioune and its various trades (basket makers, sculptors, weavers, jewelers…) and a gallery of sand paintings. Lunch.

You will then head to the pier to take the boat that will take you to Gorée Island after a 20-minute crossing. Gorée is an island steeped in history and marked by the sad slave trade. Visit the Fort d’Estrées which now houses the historical museum, visit the House of Slaves, stroll along the cliff of the island called the Castel where you can see the monument of the Gorée Almadies Memorial. Wander through the charming alleys of the island, lined with houses dating from the colonial era. Return to Dakar in the afternoon and continue to your hotel.
