Discover Senegal, 7 Days

From: $1,781.00

Although Senegal has a lot to offer, you could easily spend your entire stay taking in the sights and sounds of bustling Dakar, the country’s capital and gateway to West Africa. But don’t be tempted, as there are more interesting sites than your time will allow. Get away from Dakar and see some of Senegal’s gems including Pink Lake, a rare phenomenon located only an hour from Dakar, where the high concentration of salt and microorganisms gives the water its unique pink color.

A twenty minutes ferry ride takes you to Goree Island, where the tranquil atmosphere and pastel-colored houses betray Goree’s infamous past. If you are near Dakar on Sunday you may schedule a few hours to visit Abbaye de Keur Moussa, a Benedictine monastery built in the early 1900s and where Sunday mass is celebrated accompanied by traditional African musical instruments such as Koras, Balafons, and Soft Drums.
