Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Change things up with these side-trips from Dakar: Village Artisanal de Saly (in Mbour), Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine) and Lagune de la Somone (in Somone). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at La Maison des Esclaves, tour the pleasant surroundings at Reserve De Bandia, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar.

For reviews, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Dakar travel route builder website .

In December, daily temperatures in Dakar can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
