Situated on the western edge of mainland Africa, the crowded and dynamic city of Dakar offers visitors booming shopping, dining, and entertainment scenes.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dakar: Reserve De Bandia (in Saly), Plage Popenguine (in Popenguine) and Paroisse Saint Charles Borromee (in Goree Island). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at La Maison des Esclaves, admire the striking features of Dakar Railway Station, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar, and pause for some photo ops at Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine.

To find more things to do, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, read our Dakar route website .

New York City, USA to Dakar is an approximately 19-hour combination of car and flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from New York City to Dakar due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in September, things will get somewhat warmer in Dakar: highs are around 87°F and lows about 77°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
