Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
Venture out of the city with trips to Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), Paroisse Saint Charles Borromee (in Goree Island) and Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at La Maison des Esclaves, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, get in on the family fun at Accrobaobab Adventure, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Dakar trip planner.

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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
