Senegal
Couched between the arid desert lands of the north and lush tropical forests in the south,
Senegal boasts a stunning array of sights, sounds and flavours. The capital Dakar alone
hands you the country in a capsule. Perched on the tip of a beach-lined peninsula, this
dizzying city is composed elegance and street hustle all rolled into one. The busy streets,
vibrant markets and glittering nightlife will easily draw you into their relentless rhythm,
but the escape route is always open – be it to the meditative calm of the historical Île de
Gorée or the golden sands of Yoff and N’Gor. And if Dakar’s sensory overload really gets too
much, architecturally beautiful Saint-Louis, the first French settlement in West Africa, boasts
a vibrant urban culture without the inner-city bustle.
Most visitors head to Senegal for its beaches, and for good reason. North and south of
Dakar, wide strips of white sand invite swimming and sunbathing, whether in the built-up
resort zones, where a lazy day at the beach can be followed by a cocktail trail at night, or
in one of the coast’s charming fishing villages, the beaches of which are dotted with hundreds of colourful wooden pirogues. At the deltas of the Casamance and Saloum Rivers,
the coastline is broken up into a maze of thick mangroves, tiny creeks, wide lagoons and
shimmering plains. A pirogue trip through these striking zones reveals hundreds of bird
species, from the gleaming wings of tiny kingfishers to the proud poise of pink flamingos.
Whether you want to mingle with the trendsetters of urban Africa, or be alone with your
thoughts and the sounds of nature – Senegal is the place to be.
