Goree Island, Dakar, Senegal
Travel Agent | | Goree Island, Dakar, Senegal
The island of Gorée lies a couple of kilometres off the coast of Dakar.
From the 15th to the 19th century it has a history of being a slave-trading centre on the African coast.
Like many of the slave trading areas of Africa it was ruled in succession by the Portuguese, Dutch, English and French, its architecture is characterised by the contrast between the grim slave-quarters and the elegant houses of the slave traders.
You can book a trip out to the island with one of the tour agents listed on our pages.
