African Renaissance Monument, Dakar Reviews

  • One of the best place to visit in Africa. Especially in Senegal Dakar. Designing of statue from Brass metal is amazing. Top of the statue made the hotel. That's fantastic things. It's beauty of creativity made by designer's. It's salute to Senegal governments for allocating funds for such statue. This is one of the best place in Africa.

  • It's okay site. Given the history of how and who built it is really does not make it fun or feel right to visit and enjoy it. It is also inappropriate given that the statues are nude and this is a Muslim and African country.

  • Good place to visit. Cultural souvenir. Good architecture

  • Historical Statue in Dakar showing a historical era in Africa. The message is powerful and marks the struggle they had to do to get freedom. It is built on top of a mountain and is visible from most parts of the region. Visited on an official visit to Dakar.

  • I absolutely loved the monuments. You can have a broader view of Senegal from the top of the monuments. Staying outside the monument was free when I visited but you have to pay to get inside. Though I did not have the opportunity to get inside the monuments, but I was informed that there is a good restaurant inside and an elevator to get to the top of the monument.
