Oumar K.

Dakar, Senegal

I love this beautifully and cuturally rich country and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Whether you are traveling alone, with your family or a small group of friends, my customized tours can be built to your specifications and needs, and can accommodate up to 30 people or more. Please, send an inquiry if you have a large group.
Here are some elements I hope you will consider as you choose your Guide.
**I lived for 10 years in the USA, so I can offer you both an inside and external view of Senegal. In addition to helping me perfect my use of the English language, this time expanded my world view and hopefully will allow me to better understand and answer your questions about my country's culture and people.
**I have been working with PAPE( our driver) for several years. Instead of hiring support from various sources, I have collected a top-notch team of people during the last 20 years to assist me in providing you excellent care and support.
** In this predominantly French speaking country, all of my tours are solely conducted in ENGLISH.
**I am fluent in English, French and Wolof. This allows me to communicate easily with you, and interprete for you, should you wish to' speak' with Locals.
**I will show you in a short time, what you probably couldn't experience on your own, even with more time.
**My goal is to connect with you and give you a wonderful experience.
**These tours are tailor made to suit you. We can adapt them as we go to make sure you are spending your limited time doing those things of most interest to you.
Given the many years I have been doing this, I feel that I am best able to do such tailoring since I know about travel time, traffic, schedules, etc. .
**Even if you do not choose me as your Guide, I am happy to try and answer questions for you. You have a limited amount of time and there is much to see and do here. I don't want you to waste your precious time.

My whole goal is to make sure visitors who use my service see the best Dakar has to offer, have fun and take home a memorable experience.
In Dakar where OLD is NEW, HOT is COOL, anybody can be somebody at least for a while.
LET ME SHOW YOU THE RIGHT WAY!

A Recent Review of this guide

Oumar is an outstanding guide. I had a delightful time with him - his energy and enthusiasm to show off his lovely Senegal is fantastic. Certainly a trip to Goree Island is emotional and moving. I appreciated how thoughtful Oumar was to be incredibly informative as well as reflective - allowing the visit to feel honest and authentic, touching and honoring. Oumar, himself, is quite an interesting, friendly, generous man. You will certainly not be disappointed spending time with this great guide. #BEST
