Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Escape the urban bustle at Lagune de la Somone and Plage Popenguine. Popular historic sites such as Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar and Grand Mosque of Dakar are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Dakar side-trips: Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), L'Elevage d'Oiseaux Exotique (in Ngaparou) and Mbour (Grande Mosquee Gandigal-Est & Village Artisanal de Saly). The adventure continues: examine the collection at La Maison des Esclaves, make a trip to Lago Rosa, step off the mainland to explore Island of Goree, and find something for the whole family at Accrobaobab Adventure.

To see maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Dakar travel route planning site .

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airports are Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport and Diass-Thies Blaise Diagne International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Dakar are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
