Dakar - Travel and Tourism
Riding strong on a 60-year wave of population growth, Dakar, the capital of Senegal, is one of West Africa’s largest cities.
Dakar seems to be holding one festival or another all year-round, and people in the city take them seriously.
We recommend visiting Senegal during its dry season, between December and April.
If you are a citizen of the United States, the European Union, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
Dakar is one of Africa’s safer large cities, but as when traveling anywhere, use your common sense and stay alert.
Although Internet cafés are dwindling, it is still possible to get online at several locations around the city if your hotel does not offer wi-fi.
