Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Explore Dakar's surroundings by going to Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), Lagune de la Somone (in Somone) and Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine, make a trip to Lago Rosa, contemplate the long history of Les Mamelles Lighthouse, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mosque of the Divinity.
