Saturday 27th May we were on an Art and Culture Tour of Dakar. Our coach criss-crossed the city driving up and down the City’s Stree

There are not many impressive buildings in Dakar, so this one is rather outstanding.

It is located on Avenue Du Président Léopold Sedar Senghor, referred to locally as the Champs Elysees of Senegal.

Our guide informed us that it was not possible for the coach to stop, but it was able to slow down for a quick photo opportunity.

He also advised us that the President was in residence as the Sénégalaise flag was flying as was the smaller flag beneath it. There was also a guard on duty in front of the main gate.

I couldn't really see much as the armed police man by the fence asked us to cross to the other side of the road. It was a walk by attraction. Saw the guard dressed like Buckingham palace guards in their Victorian outfit. Quite a large and beautiful white building unfortunately we weren't allowed to stop and admire and pictures weren't allowed as well.

Fortunate enough to not only be allowed in but to actually be inside the Palace itself. Clean, spacious and royal, this is a residence fit for a King or President. The only problem is I was not able to boast to anyone because you cannot take your mobile inside.

It was quite disappointing when I knew they’ve cancelled taking pictures with the guards at the gates and not allowing anyone to get close to the house.

It is one of eminent historical place at Dakar. It is another old heritage building at Dakar and now used for Presidential Palace of Senegal. Photographs are prohibited and public entrance are not allowed. We have experienced the architecture of this site from outside only .

The Palace of the Republic is a historic house, located in Dakar (Senegal), in the district of Plateau. After having been the official residence of the governor general of the AOF, it is today that of the Senegalese head of state.

You can’t go inside the Presidents Palace because he is there. Lol. But it is awesome to walk by, see the guards, look at the details around the gate and house. I recommend seeing it while you’re there and downtown.

The home and office of the President of Senegal is worth a drive by but not much to see and the police presence doesn’t invite you to linger either!
