La Calebasse (facebook.com/Restaurant-La-Calebasse) is an art gallery-cum-restaurant in Mamelles. Wander past collections of West African paintings, masks and life-size metal statues, as you walk up the staircase to this top floor restaurant. Sit on the roofed terrace to sample some local dishes such as Senegal’s national favorite, the Thieboudienne.

La Calebasse is one of those restaurants that is like a triple threat – a museum, a restaurant, and some live bands spot to   listen to typical live music, three groups will entertain our night there.

You can use that wait-time to wander the museum. The owner of the restaurant is a French man married to a Senegalese woman and most of the crafts in the museum are from his personal travels around Africa. It’s not a museum in the traditional sense where things are labeled and there’s a sense of order about the arrangements – no, instead, you get the feeling you are peeking into someone’s private collection knowing that most, if not all the items, are not for sale. You can get lost from room to room where every imaginable corner has some artifact that is steeped in history.

Voluntary Leisure day on 12.10.2018


08h00 – Assembly for departure at the King Fahd Hotel Venue

08h10 – Bus departure to Gorée Island + 30 minutes ferry service

The island of Gorée lies off the coast of Senegal, opposite Dakar. From the 15th to the 19th century, it was the largest slave-trading centre on the African coast. Ruled in succession by the Portuguese, Dutch, English and French, its architecture is characterized by the contrast between the grim slave-quarters and the elegant houses of the slave traders. Today it continues to serve as a reminder of human exploitation and as a sanctuary for reconciliation.

The Island of Goree is an exceptional testimony to one of the greatest tragedies in the history of human societies:  the slave trade.  The various elements of this “memory island” – fortresses, buildings, streets, squares, etc. – recount, each in its own way, the history of Gorée which, from the 15th to the 19th century, was the largest slave-trading center of the African coast.

Gorée is connected to the mainland by regular 30-minute ferry service, for pedestrians only; there are no cars on the island. Senegal’s premier tourist site, the island was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1978.

An unique and beautiful experience that offers powerful feelings, moments that will leave a sign in your memories.

12:15 – Assembly for departure to Dakar City

13:15 – 14.30 – Lunch at “LE CABANON  – Link HERE


Recently opened, faced to the ocean, innovative style, Le Cabanon offers a mix between Senegalese cusine and international high quality products.

Passing the front door, the decoration and the structure of the restaurant transport us in a fancy structure almost on the ocean…

A relaxing place that together with the experience of flavors will take us in a nice journey far away…


14:40 – Departure to the “Statue de la Renaissance Africaine

Inside the statue there is a museum that will visit and then we will go up to men’ s had and will admire a magnificent view.


The African Renaissance Monument (French: Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine) is a 49 meter tall bronze statue located on top of one of the twin hills known as Collines des Mamelles, outside Dakar, Senegal. Built overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the Ouakam suburb, the statue was designed by the Senegalese architect Pierre Goudiaby after an idea presented by President Abdoulaye Wade.

President Wade said “It brings to life our common destiny. Africa has arrived in the 21st century standing tall and more ready than ever to take its destiny into its hands”.[5] President Bingu said “This monument does not belong to Senegal. It belongs to the African people wherever we are”.

The products of the Mediterranean basin combine with distant spices to awaken your senses and arouse a real gustatory emotion.
