Nestled in West Africa, Senegal does not boost its architecture but its people. The friendly behaviour of people with ostentatious avatars always attract the foreigners. While other capital cities fascinate the tourists with their magnificence but for Senegal, all the beauty lies in the suburbs of its major cities mainly, Dakar, Ngor, Yoff, Goree, and Casamance. The village close to the capital of Senegal provides scenic views for an utmost peaceful experience. Uncover the pristine beaches primarily found in the vicinity of Casamance and Dakar. In addition to that, if you are still able to spare some time then make your way to Mbour which is idyllically situated in the Petite Cote and the favourite spot for fishing. Tourists who are more detailed oriented pay attention to the dazzling sands, sapphire water along the tree-lined avenues of mangroves and spectacular birdlife.
Many of my friends have shared their interests in Africa’s Safari tours and their beautiful beaches which have made me incredibly inclined to discover the hidden gems of Africa. At the beginning of my itinerary, Senegal reminded me of Morocco. But later, I discovered sites like the Isle of Goree, also famous as the Isle of Slaves, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This pulls many tourists especially with passion in tracking down the culture and history of Africa.
Being a history buff, I made my way to the Institut Fondamental d’Afrique Noire (IFAN) Museum where I found better ways to connect with the traditional art and culture. A variety of handmade fabrics, carvings, musical instruments and agricultural tools are exhibited in the museum.
Also known as the land of Teranga, Senegal can testify any society cold when it comes to the hospitality of Senegalese community. Their attitude is warm, friendly and welcoming which makes your stay comfortable. Last but not the least, spend your savings to buy the souvenirs and take it home for memories or you may even take it for your friends.
Undoubtedly, Senegal displays a perfect blend of elegance and anarchy which will help you discover the kaleidoscopic nature of the continent of Africa. Explore flights to Senegal and customize your itinerary with top travel experts at Travel House UK to avail the most happening holiday package.
