Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
You've now added Les Mamelles Lighthouse to your itinerary. Get in touch with nature at Lagune de la Somone and Plage Popenguine. Museum-lovers will appreciate La Maison des Esclaves and La Galerie Antenna. Explore Dakar's surroundings by going to Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), Paroisse Saint Charles Borromee (in Goree Island) and L'Elevage d'Oiseaux Exotique (in Ngaparou). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar, find something for the whole family at Accrobaobab Adventure, explore the world behind art at IFAN Museum (African Arts Museum), and steep yourself in history at Iles de la Madeleine.

For traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Dakar trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport and Blaise Diagne International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Dakar can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
