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: Lagune de la Somone (in Somone), Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine) and Reserve De Bandia (in Saly). There's much more to do: examine the collection at La Maison des Esclaves, appreciate the history behind Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine, look for gifts at Village Artisanal de Saly, and make a trip to Lago Rosa.
