My name is Ciku and I am your ambassador of choice when you visit Dakar. I'm an author, communication consultant and a travel blogger with 51 countries under my belt! I write both fiction and non-fiction focusing on African stories that need telling I am a Kenyan who fell in love with Senegal and has made it my home since 2016.
My typical excursion lasts 2-3 hours and I will aim to take you to something artsy, scenic or novel, but always where we can easily speak. Such places could include a new museum exhibition, a literature event, one of Dakar's top museums, a place of historic significance etc. I can speak about a wide range of topics including African literature, must sees in Dakar and other parts of Senegal, traveling in Africa, how an anglophone has managed to happily live in Dakar etc.
Dakar does have a lot of free, interesting events every now and then and those would be the first thing I would try to find as they can enable the visitor to better immerse themselves in “real” Dakar than some of the pricier events that might mostly target foreigners.
