Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Step off the beaten path and head to Plage du Virage and Island of Goree. Venture out of the city with trips to Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine), L'Elevage d'Oiseaux Exotique (in Ngaparou) and Reserve De Bandia (in Saly). There's much more to do: head off the coast to Ngor Island, stroll through Lagune de la Somone, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and browse the exhibits of La Galerie Antenna.

In July, daytime highs in Dakar are 35°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
