What To Expect:
Senegal Travel Tour Highlights
Begin your Senegalese adventure in the capital city of Dakar, where you will indulge in the coastal cities beach offerings and explore the French colonial streets. Next, discover the grim past of Goree Island, known as the largest center of the slave trade in West Africa. Witness the stark dichotomy of the bleak and desolate slave quarters and the stately homes of the slave traders. Continue from Dakar to the region’s first French Settlement, St. Louis. Here you will explore some of Senegal’s most interesting ecological offerings including the Pink Lake, whose high mineral content gives it a rosy hue, and the Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary. The next day, visit Kaolack, which is home to one of the largest covered markets in Africa. Continue on to Saly, a gorgeous port town, visiting the shell-island of Joal-Fadiouth on the way. After a day at leisure in Saly, where one can enjoy the sandy beaches and pristine waters, enjoy your final morning in Sengal visiting the Bandia Reserve. The reserve has been a beacon of ecological success with its reintroduction of species, including large mammals, which had been exterminated from the area. It is a wonderful way to end your time in this amazing country.
