Senegal

– Dak’art Art Festival Tour –

Situated on the west coast of Africa, Senegal is one of the regions’ most popular destinations — and the safest. The capital, Dakar, is a vibrant, bustling city famous for its lively markets, rich musical culture and art scene.

Senegal Is known as the country of Teranga, which translates to hospitality in the native language of Wolof. Senegal offerings include the peaceful mangroves and waters of the Saloum River, the Renaissance Statue (the largest statue in Africa), the African Civilization Museum, Lac Rose, Goree Island and the Door of No Return and so much more!

If you have an appreciation for African Art, this is the perfect trip for you as we will arrive during the Senegal Dak’Art – Dakar Biennale Festival.

Come and mingle with creatives in the Senegalese art space as local artistes create galleries within their home and open to the public.

If you are a lover of history, outdoor activities, culture and art, this is the perfect trip for you!
