1 hr transfer in Dakar airport

I am looking at a flight itinerary that has 1 hour transfer time in Dakar. The flight arrives from Washington DC and then I would board a flight and depart to Capetown. Is 1 hour enough time to transfer? Will I have to pass through customs if I am just transferring? Thank you.

Dakar LLS is a very small airport and it usually takes about 15 minutes to clear the police checks.

As for customs, I presume your luggage will be transfered to the second plane by the airline and therefore will not involve you in a customs check.

The arrivals room is right next to departures so no lengthy walk involved, no risk of getting lost.

Provided your flight arrives on time, a one hour transfer is no problem.

Not sure if you got the answer. I just came back from Dakar, Senegal. You can take South Africa airlines. It will take you from IAD to DKR and same flight to Cape Town.

I'm wondering if the hour was enough. We've just booked from Dulles to Dakar with one hour on the ground for transfer to a flight for Johannesburg. We have 24 hours to change our mind on these tickets. Your feedback would be appreciated!
