Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Step out of the city life by going to Plage Popenguine and Plage du Virage. Explore hidden gems such as Paroisse Saint Charles Borromee and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore Dakar's surroundings by going to Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), Lagune de la Somone (in Somone) and L'Elevage d'Oiseaux Exotique (in Ngaparou). There's much more to do: browse for treasures at La Galerie Antenna, explore the world behind art at L'esprit des lieux, try your luck at Casino Terrou-Bi, and head off the coast to Island of Goree.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport and Blaise Diagne International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
