Directions for your Transfer from Dakar Airport

The Blaise Diagne International Airport is about 60 kilometres east of Dakar’s city centre. By taxi, the trip to reach the city takes around an hour.

After around 30 minutes on the A1, you will continue onto the N1 which will take you the rest of the way to Dakar, where your driver will take the local streets to reach your accommodation.
