Dakar

Best Readers,

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!

Hi, All

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…

Hi all!

Im just about to head out to Senegal for a 6 month research project. I know that for 3 months no visa is necessary but to extend it for 6 months I need to register with the local authorities to get a ‘Carte d’Etranger'. There's another British guy out there on the project already and when he asked the authorities for this extension they told him it doesn't exist :/. Does any one know anything about this or the best way to get around it if this is going to be an issue??

Many Thanks!

Jo…

Hello Thorn Trees,

I am planning a ride on my bike (BMW F800GS) from Dakar to Casamance.

I currently live in Dakar anyway (expat), just wondering about the route from Saly, Fatick through Sine Saloum to the border crossing at Karang Senegal Gambian border onwards to the ferry at Barra, Banjul and down through to Casamance.

Dear all,

just got back from Dakar. I want to recommend a great driver/tourguide to you. Mamadou has his own car speaks good spanisch, english and french and definitely knows his ways around all of senegal. He drove me from Dakar to Banjul and back in one day, allthough he doesn´t do these tours anymore and is more focussed on guiding, makes sense since he knows a lot about the country.

He always answered my questions within 12 hours via email hello.taxi7places@gmail.com

You can find some…

Me and boyfriend are visiting Dakar in late May and we would like to do a walking tour of the city.

Thanks
