Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Take a break from the city and head to Plage Popenguine and Scuba & Snorkeling. Head to Village Artisanal de Saly and Marche HLMfor some retail therapy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Dakar: Le Village des Tortues (in Rufisque), Thies (Museo de la Tapiceria & Accrobaobab) and Grande Mosquee Gandigal-Est (in Mbour). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 4th (Thu) at Mini Beach by Lamantin. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Reserve De Bandia, explore the world behind art at L'esprit des lieux, make a trip to Lago Rosa, and appreciate the history behind Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine.
