Arriving in Destination

Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport (Dakar) If it's your first time flying into Dakar, or you're arriving very late at night, you might consider booking transport through your hotel or guesthouse (which will charge CFA5000 and up to collect you from the airport).

Otherwise, taxi touts line up along a fence just outside the airport exit. Most quote wildly inflated prices; you'll have to negotiate before getting in. Pay no more than CFA5000 if going all the way across town to the Plateau, and less if going to Yoff, N'Gor or Les Almadies (in the ballpark of CFA3500).
