Dakar, the very French capital of Senegal is a pleasant city with beautiful tree-lined boulevards and the most European atmosphere of any city on the continent (outside of South Africa). The city is located on the Cap Vert peninsula, Africa's westernmost point. 

Dakar has some good museums and a few historic remains, most notably the Ile de Goree, which are worth a visit and described in the section sights. The nightlife (see nightlife) is among the best in Africa.

For shopping Dakar has some great African markets (see markets).

When you want to be active during your stay, see activities, when you want to relax, go to the beaches.

Dakar offers several good daytrips (see daytrips)...
