Air

Ziguinchor Airport is in the south of the city, about 4.5km south of the waterfront.

Groupe Transair flies twice daily between Dakar and Ziguinchor (one-way/return about CFA65,000/115,000).

Boat

Three boats make the long, overnight journey between Dakar and Ziguinchor: the Diambogne, the Anguène and the larger Aline Sitoé Diatta. There are four departures heading each way: the Aline Sitoé Diatta goes twice per week, and the other boats each go once weekly. The voyage takes 14 to 18 hours.

Buy your ticket (CFA16,000 to CFA31,000 one-way) in advance and in person from the gare maritime (passenger port). You can also buy tickets through Diambone Voyages based in Ziguinchor – a good option if you're overseas, as ferries can book up.
