Restaurant
👍👍 I think I found my new spot in Thies. So far the best restaurant I’ve visited. The concept is original, I liked the lady at the reception, she was so kind and the food delivered in a snap of a finger. Talking about the food, you feel and taste the quality of the cooking. It is easily a 5/5 star rest...

We’ve now been here three times, because despite the atrocious prices, the views are amazing. Listening to t...

🫤 The museum was an idea proposed by Senegal's first president Léopold Sédar Senghor over 50 years ago, and became a reality in 2015. For its sprawling size, the museum didn’t offer exhibitions worthy of its 14000 sqm. All exhibitions, accept for the one of African woman leaders one, are in French. S...
