Me and boyfriend are visiting Dakar in late May and we would like to do a walking tour of the city.
Could anyone recommend us of any good tour guides they have used in the past?
I want to go to Africa to learn french for a bit less than 2 months. I think either Cameroon or Senegal are the best options. Which of these countries would people recommend? Important things to consider: Price (very important), people vibe, safety, sights, things to do, other backpackers, and most importantly, where is actually best to LEARN french?
If there are any french speakers in this forum. Which is the coolest accent?
So...I'm thinking about overlanding from Nouakchott to Bissau in June. The LP even says "There are few reasons to visit the region at this time with the rains well and truly underway". So my question...is it really that bad?
I've been elsewhere in the rainy season (Central America, SE Asia, etc.) and it's never proven to be that bad. Usually just an hour of rain a day before it clears up, but it's never really gotten in the way of things. Is this stretch of west Africa worse? Is it really…
Does anybody know the timetable and price of the ferry (I believe it's overnight?) from Zhiguinzhor to Dakar? Any information regarding the reverse leg would be well appreciated too.
my girlfriend and I are going to Senegal in May and June 2016. We would love to spend at least a month with a NGO or any association that helps young Senegalese preferably in Dakar or Saint Louis. In terms of mission we don't have any requirement. I am sure our background can be of help for any educational mission. I did some researches and there's so many different associations. It would be great if you could speak about your experience and give us some advises and names of people we…
Quick question - I would love to get from Gambia to Saint-Louis in a day.
Is this realistically possible?
Can I do this by avoiding Dakar? i.e. changing sept-places somewhere else?
Thanks for the help!
Planning to go to Senegal on June, as an (aged...) single woman, I woud like to know a reliable and possibly economic travel agency in Dakar for circuits in Senegal. No problem about French language.
For those of us who still need a Senegal visa (Australians in particular) - just wanted to share that it isn't necessary to pay or organise the visa through Tokyo or Kuala Lumpur.
The Paris consulate gave the visa for free in a whole of 10 mins (with the requisite forms etc). Very easy!
I am interested in moving to Dakar for 6-8 months to study French. I’ve been in contact with a few schools but they all charge quite a lot for my budget. Are there a lot of private tutors in Dakar? Anyone got info?
