About Dakar

Dakar is the capital of Senegal and lovingly it is called as 'little Paris,' It is a cosmopolitan city with all the facilities and amenities you’d want in a holiday destination. Dakar is a city of contrasts. On one hand, it’s the capital city, a bustling central hub for trade and politics. On the other hand, you will find some of the best surfing spots in the world or you can simply relax on the beach of your choice. Drift further away from the shoreline and you will explore unique countryside villages and striking scenery down the horizon. It’s quite rare to find a city like this that isn’t yet flooded by tourists, making Dakar the perfect destination to plan your next adventure with flights to Dakar from the UK.

Best Time to Visit Dakar

The best time to fly to Dakar is from November to March when the desert regions can be unexpectedly cool at night. During this period, the drier north around Dakar hovers around 26°C and the low 30s towards the south. It also brings migratory birds that are worth admiring.

Best Places to Visit in Dakar

Dakar is a traveller’s playground that is located towards west Africa. This fascinating destination brims with several worthy spots and stunning French colonial heritage. Moreover, thriving wildlife, fabulous beaches, affluent culture and appealing islands attract numerous tourists year-round. And, if you are planning to visit Dakar, some of the most popular tourist attractions are listed below.

Ngor Island: Most of the West African cities are situated near the coast and not many can match up to Dakar when it comes to golden beaches. However, Ngor beach is a mile away from the mainland and blessed with tiny restaurants and clear water.

Dakar’s Mamelles: Translated as 'breasts' in French, the Mamelles are two hills located on the city's western region. One hill has a lighthouse with a trendy resto-bar and the other hill has a huge statue of a family pointing towards the Atlantic Ocean.

Lake Retba: This is Senegal's very own Dead Sea that is located 17 miles north-east of Dakar. This shallow lake has high salt content with shades of pink. Take a dip, enjoy floating, ride a camel or a quad bike at the beach and go back to the water if you like.

Yassa Mafe: Do not leave Dakar without relishing Senegalese food. Which means you'll have a variety of fish dishes, meat products, vegetables and fast food as well. Walk into Yassa Mafe, one of the best, award-winning eateries in the city and enjoy a hearty meal.

Galerie Arte: Dakar is a flourishing hub for art and craft and every two years, Dakar Biennale is held as a tribute to African art and culture. If you miss this event, there are plenty of museums and galleries that offer fabulous insights into African heritage.

Marche Sandanga: Dakar has markets of all shapes and sizes all over the city. You can find vendors selling everything from baobab trees and hibiscus to clothes and homewares. Book cheap flights to Dakar from the UK for the best shopping and visit Marche HLM, Marche Kermel and Soumbedioune.
