1-Month Trip to Dakar, Senegal

Jan 8 - Feb 4, 2023

Dakar Senegal beach

A laid-back surf town, historic port, and culinary surprise. Dakar, your new home and office.

Set up your next remote office on the Atlantic Port of the Capo Verde peninsula! Dakar is a fantastic place to make new connections - catch waves on ‘Secret Beach’ or gorgeous sunsets from rooftop bars after work. Try delicious Senegalese cuisine such as the hearty Maffe beef stew and see the local way of life at the Medina quarter. Uncover the hidden treasure that is Dakar!

Meet one of our Community Leaders

Eddie Jones

A true nature-aficionado, with a heart for helping people, Community Leader Eddie is truly one of a kind. When he’s not busy hiking or skiing on mountain tops, Eddie spends his time learning new languages (he’s fluent in Spanish). During your month in Dakar, you will have a Community Leader, like Eddie, to support you, and a dedicated City Team who will be your insider source for the best local tips in town!

Meet travelers, diplomats, and locals in your new lively neighborhood.

Unpack your laptop (and your swimsuit!) in your new home near the beach. You’ll be staying in private bedrooms in shared apartments or private rooms in a hotel, with a choice to book a private apartment at an extra cost. You are only a stroll away from the supermarket and popular restaurants and cafes. Go out and enjoy the vibrant nightlife!

A pink lake. An orange desert. White sandy beaches. Discover all the colors of Dakar.

There's so much to discover in Dakar! Make the most of its beaches by learning to surf, or take a boat ride to explore Ngor Island just off-shore. Want to stay in town?
