Dakar Tour Ideas
Bandia park reserve is one of the major attractions in Senegal for tourists staying in Dakar or nearby area. It is a conservation park that helps protect some African wildlife like giraffes, rhinos, a variety of antelopes, buffaloes, monkeys, crocodiles, tortoises and more. This tour will give you a chance to watch closely the wildlife in an eco-friendly nature. Also, you will enjoy a wonderful boat ride in Somone lagoon - another eco-park providing a natural habitat for birds in a lush mangrove.
The House of Slaves on Gorée Island was reconstructed and opened as a museum in 1962. Captured people from all over West Africa were held in the building in great numbers and from there transported directly to the Americas. More than a million slaves passed through the doors of the house and then through its 'Door of No Return' to board ships. Today, the island is a peaceful retreat for the city where you can walk quiet streets, see colonial architecture and have lunch.
