  • I enjoyed the place. The paintings are really nice, the way history is transcribed very inspiring. I just wish the guide tool his time a bit more. At times it felt VERY EXPÉDITIVE, like the only thing he wants us you off the place. Also, not much explanation about some historical details when questions are asked...

  • 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.

  • The feeling especially when one reaches the top...not just the top of the stairs that takes your breath away, but the very top of the statue itself (15th floor)...cannot be described in words. Here, you appreciate the whole of the city, it's architecture, it's people, it's culture, and the way Dakar blends with the sea. I'll keep having a feeling of nostalgia thinking about the monument. Cost is 3000fcfa (for Africans and 6500fcfa for others) to reach the top of the statue, and it's worth it.

  • Very beautiful place. It is well designed and the maintenance is good.

  • It's a great place to visit
