A twenty minute ferry ride takes you to Goree Island, where the tranquil atmosphere and pastel colored houses betray Goree’s infamous past. Explore Dakar itself on a city tour that shows off the main highlights including the presidential palace and the most significant neighbourhoods. Pick up some handmade souvenirs and treasures to bring home from the local craft markets. If you are near Dakar on Sunday you may schedule a few hours to visit Abbaye de Keur Moussa, a Benedictine monastery built in the early 1900s and where Sunday mass is celebrated accompanied by traditional African musical instruments such as koras, balafons and soft drums.
