Dakar and Goree Island Private Trip

After collecting you at 9 am from your hotel in Dakar, we will head to the city's port where a ferry will be waiting to take to the captivating island of Goree. There, you learn all about one of the most terrifying chapters in the history of both Senegal and the whole world.

After a brief journey of around 20 minutes, we will disembark and visit both the House of Slaves and the Historical Museum of Senegal. For three hundred years, the island held a prominent role in the Atlantic slave trade due to its location on the West African coast. You will learn all about this dark period in history and how Goree is now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next, we will take a walk through the colorful narrow streets, admiring the beautiful colonial houses of Gorea. We will make a stop so you can take lunch in your own free time before we jump back on the ferry and return to Dakar.

When we arrive back in the capital, we will take a guided tour through the historic city center. You will discover emblematic locations such as Independence Square, the Presidential Palace, the markets of Kermel and Sandaga, and the city's cathedral. We will also visit the Medina neighborhood, where we will admire the majestic architecture of the Grand Mosque of Dakar and visit Tilene market which is famous for Shamans selling charms and amulets.

The tour of Dakar ends back at your hotel, at around 5 pm.
