The Republic of Senegal is a country in West Africa. It is bordered to the north by Mauritania and by Guinea, The Gambia, and Guinea-Bissau to the South. Its capital is the city of Dakar, which also happens to be mainland Africa’s westernmost city. Perhaps one of the most fascinating things about the country of Senegal is the way it encompasses both Saharan and Tropical landscapes, providing a wider range of landscapes for visitors to enjoy.
Senegal is known as the “Gateway to Africa.” In fact, it has been welcoming European and American visitors for centuries. Despite this fact, the country remains a bit of a tourism secret as it is famous for its best family vacation spots. So, if you’re looking for a safe, accessible, and culturally-diverse experience, Senegal is well worth a visit.
Though there are plenty of nightlife options year-round, it’s worth noting that during the month of Ramadan, alcohol sales will be restricted in many areas of Senegal.
