Detail of the stay : A week in Dakar - 7 days

Day 1: The tray

To discover the plateau, the city centre of Dakar: the Théodore Monod Museum of African Art, Soweto Square, the markets, each with its own specificity and charm (from the tourist Kermel to the popular Fass, via the febrile Sandaga), the night life...

Day 2: The Almadies

Les Almadies, its beautiful villas, its intense nightlife and its oyster and sea urchin restaurants.

Day 3: Gorée

In the afternoon, excursion on Gorée Island. Return in the evening, dinner at Almadies.

Day 4: Ngor Ngor

Direction the district of Ngor, for its family atmosphere of "village" of fishermen in the heart of the city, and the island of Ngor, for its beaches, the charm of its colourful architecture and its relaxing atmosphere.

Day 5: The Wells

The Wells, with its lighthouse and the Monument of the African Renaissance, and the sublime view over Dakar that these hills offer.

Day 6: The Manual Heading

The eastern cornice and Cap Manuel, for the calm of their vesper walks along the cliffs and the beauty of a sunset.

Day 7: Yoff beach

The beach of Yoff, to admire the spectacle of fishermen returning to the port and selling their fish on the beach, a spectacular moment of life at sunset will not fail under any pretext.
