American tourists to Senegal are drawn in particular by the historic slave trading post of Gorée Island located just off the coast in the bay of Dakar, the capital city. Principal cities of interest include Saint-Louis, an old colonial town, and the Mouride holy center of Touba.
Most international tourists are Europeans, especially French, who enjoy the exhilarating beach resorts one finds in towns like Saly on the Petite Côte south of Dakar
Resort vacations are often supplemented by wildlife and nature tours of areas like the Sine-Saloum Delta, the Grande Côte to the north of Dakar, the Lac Rose (Pink Lake), and the Senegal River delta in the north near Saint-Louis.
Senegal has a small but developing National Park and Reserve system which include Langue de Barbarie National Park and Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary which provide wildlife habitat in the dunes and mangrove swamps surrounding the mouth of the Senegal River near the picturesque city of Saint-Louis. The Niokolo-Koba National Park is a World Heritage Site and a natural protected area in south eastern Senegal near the Guinea-Bissau border and protects a large variety of wild animals.
Senegalese, other African visitors, and expatriates often travel to religious sites and festivals, especially those connected with powerful Sufi Muslim brotherhoods of Senegal.
When considering a journey to Senegal, think more in terms of a Cultural Visit as opposed to an African Safari. Geographically, the safari circuit of Africa is to the east and south of the continent.
Expect a warm welcoming people when you touch down at Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport – Dakar.
