If you fancy taking a day trip, Senegal’s capital, Dakar, is a two-hour drive away. The city is filled with fascinating culture and well worth the travel. Dakar is the biggest city in the country, and has been on the map ever since the Portuguese settled there in the 15th century.
During your visit to Dakar, make sure to visit one of the heritage museums and sample traditional Sengalese street food at an open-air market. The favourite local dish is dibi, which is roasted goat meat flavoured with spices. It usually comes with sides like grilled onions, bread and a mustard dipping sauce.
