Shipping from Holland to Dakar
Anyone experience with shipping a car/ container to dakar , gambia or guinea-bissau ?
we have only 40 days free, is doable NL-Senegal and back and spend some time in senegal in the national parks?

I have shipped out of Guinea Bissau to Norway this February. Not an easy place to do business, and potentially very expensive due to corruption and/or incompetence. I would only assume that Dakar would be the easiest place in the entire regioen for shipping both in or out ( sea, air or land)... I have myself never shipped in or out of Dakar. But, as I am considering just that, I will follow this thread closely.

I rode from Portugal to Guinea-Bissau in Fev.2011 within a group of 11 bikes.

All bikes were shipped from Bissau to Lisboa, Portugal. There are direct freight container lines.


I tend to agree that Dakar as better harbour infrastructure and more freight lines offering but corruption might be a problem.

Cannot provide further details because the shipping was taken care of by the company organizing the trip - MotoXplorers

My info is a bit old so not sure if it's still relevant but... I shipped a vehicle from Le Harve to Dakar on a ro-ro. I don't know the name of the company as I just dropped it off at an agent at Le Harve port and he took care of the rest.
