I'm looking into going to casamance for a few weeks with my partner and our 7mth old- first of all, we're struggling to work out how to travel there from the UK - any suggestions?
Also where would you recommend going? We like culture, beach, water sports and soaking up life...
And lastly, do you think this is feasible with a baby?!
With only 7 days in Senegal, I'd like to hear suggestions on which places to cut from my plan.
-2 days Dakar (Lac Rose en route to St. Louis)
-2 days St. Louis (Touba en route to Toubakouta)
-2 days Toubakouta (is there a better portion of the delta near by, perhaps Missirah?)
-1 day of traveling through the above places, and going through Joal Fadiout on way back to Dakar to fly out
I plan to get around using sept place and taxi.
Is this too ambitious for 7 busy days? If so, what should…
Upcoming January I will visit Senegal. During this trip I would like to travel from lac Rose to the Lompoul desert and from the lompoul desert to Nianing. Does anybody know what the best method is and what the price differences are?
Just want to let you know about my not so pleasant trip to Ile de Goree today, and warn you about potentially having there the worst travel experience ever (and believe me, I have been to quite a few places...)
I am now in Dakar just for a weekend, and decided to go see this "thing #1" in the city. Nice place, nothing more to say about the town itself. We arrived later in the afternoon and wanted to take a ferry leaving the island for Dakar at 20.30. When we were passing by the ferry terminal…
My girlfriend and I are traveling to Senegal for 12 days. We're trying to work out an initin that has a good balance of city, culture, beach and adventure. Money isn't an object. If there's anything we're missing and NEED to do or should skip, thank you in advance. Also still unsure how we're going to get from place to place, I know it always works out, but any info there rocks.
Here's where we are for now:
Oct 1-3 - Dakar
Oct 3-4 - St Louis (stop Pink Lake)
Oct 4-6 - Lampoul…
I'm going to Senegal for work in November 2016. I will have three days before the conference starts for tourism things and either one or two days after, depending on when I book flights. I will be based in Les Almadies, near the airport whilst working - those days will be jam packed though and won't have time to do anything in that area on those days, even in the evenings. I will be travelling alone, and am female in my mid twenties, don't speak much french.
I'm thinking for the 3 days…
i'm looking forward to go to Dakar around October.
From Holland you can fly with Tui and even also with Tap Portugal.
TUI i know the flights Always good, no problems.
But have anyone experience with Tap Portugal?
If you have 55 minutes to go to the other flight, is that enough in Lissabon??
And the suitcases? Is that all going fine?
Thanks for you reply!
I'm planning to go Dakar at the end of this month or early next month, a quick visit. If possible could you share some advice with me?
First, i'm not a French speaker. How bad will it be when i land, i mean in the custom, is there any staff who can speak English?
Second, how to rent a car with driver(could English), does anyone happen to know some guy doing this business? Just inside Dakar, what's the cost?
Third, could anyone recommend some restaurants serving french food? If possible…

Another question; Im off for 10 days any suggestions apart from visiting the city???

Watching Dolphins Ospreys Beeeaters Kingfishers etc etc helping the locals with the peanut harvest Happy Happy days improving my…
