Manila, Philippines to Dakar is an approximately 28-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 8 hours traveling from Manila to Dakar. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Manila in February; daily highs in Dakar reach 28°C and lows reach 20°C.

You've now added Reserve De Bandia to your itinerary. On the 13th (Thu), stroll through Lagune de la Somone, tour the pleasant surroundings at Reserve De Bandia, and then kick back and relax at Plage Popenguine. Keep things going the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at L'Elevage d'Oiseaux Exotique and then look for gifts at Village Artisanal de Saly.

Plan my Saly trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Do a combination of bus and car from Dakar to Saly in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. In February, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to drive to Saint-Louis.
