Dakar, Senegal

After docking in Dakar we took a tour to ile de Goree, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This island was a slave depot in west Africa. Here slaves were kept until they were sold and then shipped off to Europe or the New World. A 30 minute ferry ride took us to an island which was about 2 miles off shore. Once on shore we had a short tour of the island and then free time to explore on our own.     Ile de Goree Ile de Goree Ile de Goree Ile de Goree Ile de Goree Street Slave House Door of no return Slave House Waiting room door Slave House Auction Area Liberation of Slaves Statue Street near slave...
