Dakar, the western-most city on the African mainland, is a very French capital and the largest city of Senegal. A feverish city that brims with life, together with its beautiful tree-lined boulevards, results in it having the most European atmosphere of any city on the continent. To get an excellent view of the city visit Les Mamelles Lighthouse that was built in 1864 and located on a small volcanic hill. At the same time be sure to visit the stunning Mosqué de la Divinité situated on the coast nearby. A ‘must see’ is the IFAN Museum, one of the best museums in West Africa.

The Maison des Esclaves on Gorée Island has dungeons that held slaves and a visit here is an evocative way to bring to life the horrors of that era. The island serves as a reminder of human exploitation, as well as being a sanctuary for reconciliation. It is very well worth visiting. From the 15th to the 19th century it was the largest slave-trading centre on the African coast. Ruled in succession by the Portuguese, Dutch, English and French, its architecture is characterized by the contrast between the grim slave-quarters and the elegant houses of the slave traders. The House of Slaves and its Door of No Return is a museum and memorial to the Atlantic slave trade.

Along with Dakar’s many restaurants that offer a wide variety of local foods, shopping is very popular. The fabulous Marché des HLM is the best place to buy African fabrics together with added accessories. Hundreds of rolls of wax-dyed vibrant prints, embroidered cloth, lace and silk lend colour to the ramshackle stalls. Then there’s the traditional Yoff village and its majestic Layen Mausoleum, both of which reflect the strong local Islamic culture, and require visitors to respect certain clothing requirements.
