The West African experience


This cultural tour requires a minimum of 2 participants. First, you will be given a true insider's perspective of the city of Dakar. However, the Dakar experience would not be complete without visiting the Door-of-no-Return in the Slave House on GOREE island. With a 4 WD, we will have the opportunity to explore salt miners harvesting the salt from the PINK LAKE, visit a traditional Fulani village, meet with the Chief and experience their lifestyle. If Dakar makes you wanna visit Paris, Saint Louis, Senegal makes you wanna visit New Orleans. We will explore the oldest city in Senegal, former Capital of the French West Africa. An overnight in traditional tents in the middle of the desert is a lifetime experience. Enjoy the calmness of nature. You will also be given the opportunity to visit the most beautiful Mosque in West Africa located in the holy city of Touba. A 45 mn boat ride, takes us to SIPO island to meet with a Queen.
A mini safari tour on a 4 WD allows us with a safari guide to explore animal
