african accommodation guide

Senega has a varied climate and topography and has several large cities. Senegal has had a troubled recent past, and you should check travel advice before heading there. It's popular with backpackers – and the famous Paris to Dakar rally finishes there.

What to Do in Senegal Africa

Much of the tourism in the region is based around the Atlantic Coast of the Gambia. In Senegal, the main city is Dakar; the African Renaissance Monument is an enormous statue meant to represent African hope, although ironically is a Stalinist-esque structure made in North Korea. Goree Island has a former slave station and a beach. You should also take a trip to one of Dakar’s markets; the biggest is the Marche Sandaga.
