    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Senegal has a lot to offer. Besides Dakar, you can visit six national parks, coastal lagoons, an inland delta and notable bird sanctuaries. Senegal is also blessed with some beautiful natural scenery including many secluded beaches to relax.

    From wonderful mosques to traditional architecture, bustling markets to lonely beaches, lively cities to quiet villages - Senegal has it!

    Fondest memory: Those markets fascinated me more than anything else and I guess, that's when the "Africa Bug" got me!!!

    Favorite thing: Take a walk to the markets in Dakar. Don't be afraid of getting deep into the dark sites of it. I didn't find any danger there, but very friendly people selling condiments and plants I've never seen before.

    Parc Niokolo a must!

    by TracyG Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You absolutely must go to Parc National De Niokolo - Koba (a mouthful I know) There are some great chances to see hippo, crocodile, and lots of antelope, and if you are very very lucky, maybe lion too.... It is definately the Serengeti of west Africa.

    Fondest memory: Visiting a very rural fishing community, not far from the Gambian border, and being invited to help the women crush the millet - a lot lot harder than it looks! and then being taken on a traditional cooking lesson.

    Meet the villagers!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If there is one thing that you do whilst you are in Senegal, it is getting out of the city and into the country to meet the villagers, they are really amazing people......

    Fondest memory: I really miss the Senegalese music, it is very unique and is very infectious. (See my Senegal Travelogue for more photos of the villages)

    Forest and lagoon

    by Khamlia Updated Apr 10, 2015

    Favorite thing: Before I came, I thought I would see tropical forest, but unfortunately, it was pretty sparse. They use wood for everything so they fall tree after tree. I think that's a shame, it felt even more local, that it should stop cutting trees. But ...
    In all cases it was fine there with so many lagoons which flew lots of different birds like pelicans, among others. The others I can not remember their names.
    Unfortunately we did not get to rent a car so we had to take a taxi, but it was difficult to find, too, so our traveling around became quite limited. In any case, took a trip to Cap Skirring and saw little around Ziguinchor. There we could see here and there old buildings since colonial time. Cap Skirring made me a little disappointed because the town was a bit chaotic and there were so many buildings around so you could not see the ocean until we got to the beach. On the beach, it was also here lots of piroges and fishermen, so it was fun to watch. Hard work it is.
    There is plenty of water there, not only just the ocean, but also many large lagoons that is almost all the way from Abene up to Ziguinchor and then towards Cap Skirring.

    Fondest memory: It was peaceful and quiet there, locals was very pleasant, cheerful and helpful. I liked it extremely well. Even the weather was perfect, not so very hot, not too humid either as I experienced in other countries in West Africa where I was. Of course, it was February, in summer it must be very hot there I think and when it's rainy season, it's probably damp there too. I liked the fresh air there.
    And, I never saw before so many mango trees as there.
    It was worth going to Casamance and I'd love to come back, rent a car in Gambia (or in Dakar) and then drive around much more than now.

    Favorite thing: Witness a sunset from one of the many bridges in St-Louis.

    Fondest memory: The laid-back atmosphere. I went during the rainy season (not

    there were no tourists
