Senegal is one of West Africa’s most stable countries, yet it is far from boring. The capital city, Dakar, is a hectic, loud, polluted, street-tout welcome to the country. Here you’ll find it all; class meets chaos, sputtering fumes of old cars and buses polluting the air, bustling markets and glitzy nightlife. Escape the busy city to nearby Gorée Island and the beaches N’Gor to chill out with slow beats. Be sure to schedule a visit to Northern Senegal and Casamance region.
