Senegal is bordering on the countries of Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Mali and Mauritania, as well as the Atlantic Ocean in the west and Gambia, which could almost be called an enclave of Senegal. The famous capital Dakar is, of course, well worth a visit. But from the meditative calm of historical Île de Gorée to the golden sands of Yoff and N’Gor or the architectural highlights of Saint-Louis, the first French settlement in West Africa: Senegal is a country rich with culture and blessed with beautiful landscapes.
Wildlife fans shouldn’t miss out on the 3 hour mini-safari through the Fathala Reserve at Karang, just north of the border to Gambia. Just rent an off-road car at the reserve and see giraffes, rhinos and antelopes. Most visitors travel to Senegal in order to spend the most relaxing time at one of its beautiful beaches. North and south of the busy capital Dakar, there are long strips of white sand along the coastline, ideal for swimming and sunbathing. Whether in the resort areas with its many comfortable and modern hotels or in one of the small and charming fishing villages along the coast: Book your favourite hotel in Senegal with HRS and profit from the lowest rates available.
