Why stay at Ngor Island Surfcamp?
Ngor Island Surfcamp has been running surf trips in Senegal for 20 years. We want to distinguish ourselves as the leading surf operator in the region. We have a commitment to constantly improve and upgrade everything we offer to our guests, including meals, sleep quality, transport comfort and of course, surf guiding. Our slogan is "Serious about surfing, Awesome in accommodation".
Surf access and Transport
The surfcamp has 2 waves out-front, including the iconic 'Ngor Right', the most consistent wave in West Africa. Guests can surf these waves on their own time, and avoid crowds by easily being first in the water at dawn. When the swell hits other spots around Dakar, we have three 4x4 vehicles and one private speedboat ready to take you to the best waves of the day. Our surf guides, and photographer, are hand-picked and trained in-house to help provide the best possible surf trip experience. During road trip season, which are included in your stay, we take guests to remote surf spots outside Dakar, both north and south of the country.
Location and Facilities
Our location provides a relaxed and serene tropical island feel, but only a 2 minute boat ride from the energetic city life of Dakar. Despite the island being totally off-grid, the surfcamp is able to provide a lot of comforts for your benefit after a long day of surfing. An outdoor pool, shaded garden sofas and cold drinks/beer available 24/7 make up just a few of the facilities on offer. All our rooms are fitted with warm showers, daily cleaning and our signature 33cm luxury mattresses - a source of endless compliments from guests.
The Vibe and the Catering
Whether you are travelling solo, with friends or as a couple, the surfcamp is purposefully run in a way that promotes community and friendship between guests, as well as with the staff. You will meet like-minded people, stoked on adventure travel, and exchange stories with them during the communal meals. Our highly-praised dinner menu guarantees that you won't eat the same dish for 14 days straight. Furthermore, buffet breakfast is served until 11:00am, so you can sleep in or have a mega-morning surf session without worrying about if there is food left.
Our Reputation among surfers and our Name in the media
We are blessed to receive many emails starting with a variation of "My friends recommended you... , I've heard many great things about... , We came last year and would like to return...". Our reputation by word-of-mouth around the world, as well as our flattering online reviews are a source of great pride for the team. Seeing our name published in respected surf media such as "Stormrider Surf Guides" and World Surf League "Brilliant Corners documentary" inspires us to continue pushing your surf trip to the next level.
