In LOVE with Senegal and a 10 for Malik!!! We have spent a wonderful week in Senegal, in Pont Sarene with our guide Malik, from the first moment he was attentive to us. He chooses the local guides very well and has made us really enjoy this beautiful country and its people. He is very professional, very respectful and fun. I absolutely recommend it.

Trip to Senegal During the month of February I enjoyed a wonderful trip to Senegal with sisters!! It has been an unforgettable experience of getting closer to African culture and its people thanks to the extraordinary work of our Spanish guide Malick (Senegal Voyage). We stayed at the Riu Baobab hotel, we combined rest and excursions!!! Malick took care of everything: transfers to the airport, excursions, local guides, currency exchange... A great person and very professional... I recommend him to anyone who wants to travel to Senegal from Spain!!! Very good also with the Hotel!!

Lion walk and Dakar with Salt Lake - 2 trips in 2 days We had a 2 days with Malick. First trip to Fathala Park with lion walk. Everything perfect. Only two of us and Malick, so totally private tour via Senegal cities. Second trip to Dakar conect with Salt Lake and nice adventure on old Paris Dakar desert. That was a proposal of Malick to connect that trip and that was a great idea. Malick is speaking english so the communication was easy and we hear a lot about Senegal. It was very safe. The best company to see Senegal not in big bus but with local guy :)

Malick a great guide!!! We spent a week in Senegal and our guide was Malick. I only have good words about him. He is a great professional, punctual, attentive to our needs and who teaches you to love his country. With him we did the airport/hotel transfers and the excursions to the shalom delta, the mangroves, we visited villages, Conchas Island, Goree Island...the local guides he chose for us were also very friendly. I recommend him 100%. At all times you feel safe. He helped us with shopping. Thank you very much for everything Malick, we are looking forward to repeating.

SALY STAY I was in Saly in Senegal for the first time in January, I really enjoyed this 6 day stay thanks to a guide called "MOMO". He advised me on excursions and supported me in the organization. I highly recommend it. I pass on his contact details: + 221 77 565 01 21. You can contact him through URIEL.

A very reliable guide! Looking for an English speaking guide in Senegal I found Malick here on trip advisor and contacted him a few weeks before arrival. I told him which places I would like to visit and he came up with a nice itinerary and a good price. He was always replying fast. When I arrived at the airport he was there to pick me up with my name on a sign. With all the excursions and transfers (he drove me to St.Louis from Saly, and back, visiting Touba on the way) he was always waiting for me before the agreed pick-up time. For every excursion he had made arrangements beforehand, a boat trip or a local guide or a lunch ready. Also I found Malick very flexible: I changed pick-up times and plans on several occasions, but with Malick everything is possible. Just ask. On a second trip to Senegal coming from the South he picked me at the ferry in Barra, Gambia. Besides French and English he is also fluent in Spanish. Anyway, as a solo female traveller I felt very comfortable with Malick driving and guiding me and I can absolutely recommend him!

amazing trip and amazing country with very nice persons Culinary Delights: The menu was a delightful surprise. Each dish was a culinary masterpiece, showcasing a fusion of flavors that left my taste buds wanting more. The presentation was as impressive as the taste. Service: The staff were not only attentive but genuinely friendly. Their recommendations were spot-on, and it was evident that they took pride in ensuring every guest had a memorable experience. Unexpected Touches: What set this place apart were the unexpected touches—a complimentary treat, a personalized note, and a level of attention to detail that made me feel like a valued guest.
Recomendación toral y absoluta para ir Dakar de la mano de Malick

Malik va ser la persona que ens va rebre a l’aeroport i ens va portar a l’hotel. Al arribar estava allí esperant-nos i ens en vam adonar que parlava català. Parla español i català perfecte a més d’altres llengües. Vam realitzar una visita amb ell, la reserva de bandia. Ens ho va gestionar tot, entrades, el guia i ens va fer la visita molt amena. És una persona molt recomanable en Senegal per a qualsevol cosa que necessites.
