Dakar - Senegal Highlights:
French colonial buildings, outdoor markets, Goree Island
The exuberant capital of West Africa's Senegal was once a French overseas territory. Friendly Dakar is a thriving seaport on Cape Verde Peninsula (the westernmost point of the African continent). It is a city where today's skyscrapers are mixed with old colonial buildings, animated street markets, and excellent museums and art galleries. You'll find French the common language, but with a wealth of tribal dialects much in evidence. Goree Island, the former primary assembly point for slave shipments to the New World is a mere ferry ride away and features a fascinating museum and elegant colonial mansions. Within easy reach, too, are some excellent Atlantic beaches, and nearby N'Gor offers good snorkelling.

Founded in 1857 by the French, Dakar gained importance from the completion of the railway linking it with the city of St Louis in 1885. It replaced St Louis as the capital of French West Africa in 1902 and was a French commune until 1924, when it became a dependency and in 1946 part of Senegal.
