Itinerary Highlights

Detailed itinerary will be shared with travellers after payment.

Day 1: Welcome to Senegal

We’ll whisk you away from DSS Airport after your arrival into the city and take you to your accommodation. After you get settled in, we’ll all head out for dinner and kick off our new journey together.

Day 2: Dig Deep

Today, we’ll be taking a tour that gives you a deep dive into Dakar’s roots. Walking through the city, visiting local markets, sampling local food, stopping at the African Renaissance Monument to take in the amazing view and learning about the people and getting our first taste of “Teranga,” – a word in Wolof that means hospitality.

Day 3: Pink Lake + Beach Bum

We’ll head to Lake Rose, also known as the pink lake while quad racing on the banks. Afterwards, we’ll relax and have lunch on the beach. Spend the night exploring the nightlife on the rooftop of a club!

Day 4: Past to Present

Today, we’ll be taking a journey to Goree Island, a small, car-free island off the coast of Dakar, known for its role in the Atlantic slave trade. We’ll visit the House of Slaves and the Door of No Return, which is believed to be one of the final exit points for many men, women and children from Africa being taken to America. You’ll walk away with a history lesson you won’t get in any textbook.

Use the rest of the day to check off those final items on your list for the city before you head back.

In the evening, you will come together for a memorable dinner at a restaurant with a remarkable view to reflect on and celebrate this experience we’ve created together.

Day 5: Goodbyes are Hard

We know, it feels like you just got here, but it’s time to say goodbye. The week may have flown by, but the memories and friendships you’ve made will last forever.
