More about Silver Cloud

Tailor-make your trip

Ways to make it better
Pousada de Lisboa, Lisbon

Our recommended hotel

The Pousada de Lisboa, newly opened in May 2015, has a great location in the heart of the city and an interior to wow you.

Palace de Pena, Sintra

Take a day trip from Lisbon

Visit Sintra – Roman and Moorish influences make this magical city with its fairytale palaces and extravagant villas a must.

Radisson Blu Dakar, Senegal

Where to stay in Dakar

The comfortable Radisson Blu is probably the best choice.

Lake Retba, Senegal

Sightseeing in Senegal

Outside Dakar lies the beautiful Pink Lake – Lake Retba. Its high salt content attracts a bacteria which creates the colour.
