West Africa - Senegal (Chapter)
This is the Senegal chapter from Lonely Planet's West Africa guidebook.
In Dakar, elegance meets chaos, while the country's beaches tap to slow, lazy beats; whether you want to mingle with the trendsetters of urban Africa or be alone with your thoughts and nature, you'll find your place in Senegal.
- weave your way via tiny villages to Senegal's best beaches on Cap Skiring and kicking back for a day of doing absolutely nothing
- wander in the footsteps of history in West Africa's first French settlement and Unesco World Heritage Site Saint-Louis
- wind through the mangroves of the Siné-Saloum Delta in a pirogue (traditional canoe)
- restaurants & accommodation
