Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Get out of town with these interesting Dakar side-trips: Thies (Accrobaobab & Museo de la Tapiceria), Mbour (Grande Mosquee Gandigal-Est & Village Artisanal de Saly) and Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 1st (Mon) at Mini Beach by Lamantin. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at La Maison des Esclaves, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lagune de la Somone, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar, and admire the masterpieces at IFAN Museum (African Arts Museum).

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Dakar tour planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport and Diass-Thies Blaise Diagne International Airport. In June, daily temperatures in Dakar can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. On the 14th (Wed), you'll travel back home.
