City Tour : Dakar Life Scenes Focused
We will introduce you to the typical local shops: hairdresser's salon, tailor's atelier, vulganisateur, mechanist and private home bars. You will share moments with the big voice mama preparing traditional small rolls, cakes, pancakes and others. You may also be invited by her granddaughter to help her carry and sell the wares in the street. Come inside the heart of Dakar’s daily life!
The following sites will be visited during the tour:
- Liberté VI
- Grand Yoff
- Grand Medine
- Parcelles Assainies
This day tour cannot be operated for big groups; six people is the maximum. You shall wear decent clothes; no shorts, especially for women. Avoid tourist looks. Discretion should be shown while carrying and using your camera. Showing off expensive clothes, equipment, jewellery or the like may be considered as an insult to the rather poor economic conditions that comprise daily life here.
If you wish to be part of a traditional or a cultural family event, such as a wedding or a baptism, you can ask us beforehand to look for one. Though we can’t guarantee it, we will look at your dates, and then ask our friends and families if they know of an event during your stay. You will then be welcomed in and treated as an honourable guest, so don't forget to bring along a small present with you.
