Dakar Airport Shuttles
About 6 miles from downtown Dakar, Léopold Sédar Senghor Airport makes arriving to the seaside escape easy to do if you’ve got a reliable ride. Book a shuttle to take care of traffic, getting instant drop-offs urban beaches and French plazas with the help of either local sedan providers or area ground transportation providers.
Before booking your shuttle, choose between a variety of island adventures sprawled across the peninsula, heading west toward Ngor for its upscale resorts and world-famous sunsets, or north near Yoff, home to several beaches, cafés, and a wide variety of business-friendly hotels close to the airport. For something more central, choose between Grand Yoff busy suburbs, Hann Pecheurs family-friendly zoo, beaches, and French plaza promenades, finally considering the grand dame of entertainment, Dakar-Plateau, home to the Grand National Theater of Dakar as well as golden sunrises.
In addition to knowing where you’re going, be sure to keep track of your shuttle reservation info. Print out your confirmation email along with other important bookings, from hotel resorts to views of downtown via Senegal Tours, all by staying organized. Do so with a travel journal, storing away all important documents in one place, also scanning medical prescriptions, identification, and passports for added safety measures, then saving those scans online, either through a cloud service or email.
About Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport
If you’re hanging out inside the airport, kick back with what’s on-site to make delays go by quick, either through quiet drinks and a magazine offered by several VIP lounges, or a simple bite to eat at either Dibi Ak Bant Yi or La Case D’or, both of which are located outside near the parking lot and offering simple West African bites. Shopping is limited to a large duty-free shop, as well as a few handicraft vendors selling locally-crafted souvenirs. There is also an on-site mosque.
In addition to nearby hotels and general downtown access, finding fun around the corner is extra simple if you’ve got nowhere to be. Lose track of time at Yoff Bay, located north of the hotel and home to two separate beaches; Yoff Beach, which offers on-site restaurants and festivals, and Yoff Tongor Beach, home to pristine views of Ile de Yoff (Yoff Island) across the water. Unwind with a delightful coffee snack west of the airport as well, enjoying the beloved crêpes and gaufres of Sucré Salé, or stopping by the even more popular "Grains D'Or" Bakery for a slice of cheesecake.
Go on an excursion through local culture once you’ve gotten a feel for the lush beaches, bays, and forests of Dakar, learning about local lows at the House of Slaves, which explores Senegal’s role in the Atlantic Slave Trade, afterward finding new heights at the African Renaissance Monument, a famous 50-meter tall statue that depicts a family atop the famous Collines des Mamelles. Find beautiful local works by walking through IFAN Museum of African Arts as well, located in an early 20th-century building and offering a blend of creative and cultural traditions, afterward finding fun street performances complimented by a large zoo at PARK Hann. Let the evening be something to remember by eating somewhere special at the end of it all, choosing between the family-friendly Lebanese of Restaurant Farid or the all-you-can-eat seafood at the scenic Marina Bay.
