Places to Visit in Senegal

The Presidential Palace is also worth visiting, if only to admire its wonderful tropical gardens. The Grande Mosque, with its minaret which is lit at night, is worth stopping to see en route to the Medina, the bustling old city centre. Goree Island, just outside Dakar, was a former slaving station and now has many attractions to tour, including the slave houses. Bird watchers will enjoy the Parc National Oiseaux du Djoudj, at the southern edge of the Sahara, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another interesting city is St Louis, Senegal’s former capital/ It has narrow streets with beautiful colonial architecture, balconies and verandahs.

Main issue was that despite prior correspondence the key was not available on arrival, we were not expected and could not access our accomodation for the 1st night. After midnight we had to walk to find an alternative. Internet also at times intermittent. Otherwise we were very happy during our stay.
