Cool place, Aziz and Marta and Leondro are great hosts and Dakar is a very warm and friendly place to be. They are attentive hosts. The accommodation is very good and the house is a warm family environment. The dinner is excellent each night/ It's really good value for money with everything included to make for a great surf trip.... More

We stayed in the surf house which is right at the beach and located in a nice, quieter part of Dakar. The surf lessons (special thanks to Adama who... More

As a solo traveler I couldn't ask for more. Got picked up at the airport by Aziz at 2.00 a.m. which made the arrival a lot easier. I booked surf guiding so every morning after breakfast we'd jump in the van and drive to the best spot depending on tides and conditions, surf for a couple of hours, have lunch... More

We stayed with a group of four friends in Malika Surf Camp. The atmosphere in the camp is great: dogs, cats and children are running around and eating together is loads of fun. Marta and Aziz really made the camp feel like a home away from home. The surf is excellent (also for beginners). Instructors are very helpful, also if... More

You meet so many different and interesting people. Surfing: I will always remember that I learned to surf at Yoff beach, Dakaar, Senegal! Aziz, Marta and their... More

But yess :-) I did make some progress... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here in April and from the minute we arrived, were made to feel welcome by Marta and Aziz. After initial confusion with the rooms, we settled in and had a great ten days in Senegal. My girlfriend was a beginner - learning on a beach break opposite the camp, joining us on more advanced waves... More

All surf coaches were very friendly, cheerful and helpful and we met a lot of interesting people! We had a lot of fun, I surfed some of the best waves of my life. We... More

Very nice surf camp with an absolutely relaxed and chilled atmosphere and nice people owing the surf camp. When you stay there it feels like a little surf family. It is clean and the location is directly at the beach. Fantastic. Surf spots are great.
