Dakar port custom
I stucked in DRC and couldn't get visa for Angola to go to north through west. The best way was to ship the truck to Dakar, to complete my 'around the world trip'. My Land Rover will be shipped from Cape Town to Dakar in March. Does anyone have any experience in Dakar Port? Are the custom formalities easy to be done by myself or is it recommended to use an agent? Any informations about temporary import by carnet de passages, cost and fees, agents are highly be appreciated.

You will need the services of a 'transitair' once you get there, in my opinion just semi-official bribary. This person takes your money and then pays all the taxes and customs officials and ofcourse keeps something for himself.
When I was in Dakar the customs wouldn't deal with me directly, they all said: 'go to the transitair', and I heard from the embassies that they also use them.
The reason they don't want to deal with you directly is ofcourse that via the transitair they get something extra. The transitair wanted 300 euro per motorbike, I heard later we should have only paid 140 euro (accually we didn't pay at all but thats a different story).
I hope you get around this, anyway it is going to cost some money as they are very good extracting it from the 'toebabs'.
