Senegal Holidays

Tailor-made Senegal tours created for you by trusted local experts

Birds, beaches and a warm, Senegalese welcome

Senegal has an energy which sweeps you up and keeps you afloat in the maelstrom of African beats, colourful markets and smiling people. French colonial influence lingers in the language and architecture, yet there is a distinctly African flavour to discover in the communities and landscapes. The capital, Dakar, is a lively metropolis spoiled with seafood and rich with cultures and traditions, including a world renowned music scene. Elsewhere, a multitude of adventures awaits. Surf the Atlantic coast, explore the waterways in search of bird life, or visit the Ile de Gorée, a scenic island steeped in history.
