Kermel, the first market built in Downtown Dakar, sells a mixture of foodstuffs, souvenirs, and stunning flowers. It's mainly worth visiting for the beautiful buildings that shelter its busy stalls full of vegetables, tropical fruits, spices, meat, fish, and other seafood. Join Alune as he explores this bustling marketplace.

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Dakar with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.
The tour will last about 35 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Dakar. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.
Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
