About the camp:  The Malika Surf Camp is our recommended choice in Senegal. Our Surf & Help team did already two trips to Malika Surf Camp and we were stoked about the surf we found and especially the friendly and familiar experience generated by the owners of the camp Aziz and Marta and their lovely team. There are still very few surfers in Senegal which gives you the chance to enjoy high quality waves even more. Because of the geographical location of the camp on the Almadies peninsula you can find the right spot for most all swell and wind directions.
About the accommodation:  The camp or “La Maison des Surfeurs” surf house is in front of the beach, with a big garden all around and an outside patio. On offer are shared and private rooms, with private and common toilets. The rooms have mosquito nets and a fan. And the camp provids a big breakfast and dinner with European and Senegalese tastes. Also, daily housekeeping and available laundry service. Broad-band internet wi-fi for free for the guests.
Testimonials:  Not only our team has only good things to say about Malika, check other on Tripadvisor.
Season: The camp is open all year round and due to the location receives north and south swells (more common during the summer months.
More details:
*  Already the surf movie classic 'Endless Summer' made in 1966 showcased the wave 'N'Gor Right" which is one of the nearby surf spots.
* Always on the best line up of the best waves of the day with our local surf guide Aziz. Every day a personal coaching on the best spot for you: Vivier, Secret, Club Med, Ngor, Ouakam for intermediate and expert surfers.
How to get there:  The camp is just a short taxi ride from the Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport and somebody from the team can easily pick you up at your arrival.

The Help Factor

  • All of our activities are supporting a good cause and as part of our partnership with the Malika Surf Camp we are supporting a boarding school project in the nearby town Malika.
  • Aziz, the co-owner of the camp, grew up in Malika and went to the school himself. Aziz and the guests can organize a visit to Malika and give a little support in whatever is needed at the time of your stay. E.g. during our trip we brought some water filters to the school.
  • With the project Solidarity Surfers you can support the local surf in Senegal, where boards and wetsuit are too expensive for young local surfers. So you can bring any sort of surf equipment and be sure that it will be of help.
