Is there a friendlier people than the Senegalese? Maybe. But the people of Dakar will do everything they can to show you there isn’t. Everyone from elegant ladies walking along dusty roads in high heels to horse cart drivers chugging down the highway will show you teranga, or hospitality.
It means your new friends in Dakar will use their irresistible charms to get you out on the town to dance, drink and eat the night away. This hook-shaped capital city of Senegal has a habit of drawing travellers in, capturing their hearts and never letting them go. So pack a little extra in case you decide to stick around for a while.
Ready to explore a new culture? Climb into your Dakar car rental and head to the IFAN Museum of African Arts. Chow down on some fresh seafood in Les Almadies while birdwatching at the southernmost tip of the peninsula. Then head up the coast along Route de la Corniche to the beaches on the western tip.
Hey, have you ever seen a pink lake? We didn’t think so. Our Dakar car hire options are your ticket to Lake Retba, naturally tinged a pleasant rosy colour by the bacteria that make it their home.
When you’re ready to explore outside the city, buckle up and head 190km to the east. Touba is Senegal’s religious centre, home to a beautiful mosque.
Thanks to the money you save on Wotif’s Dakar packages, you’ll have plenty left over to spend during a visit to the old French capital of Senegal: Saint-Louis. It’s a quick 250km trip away, and full of colonial architecture and birding opportunities.
When you book car hire in Dakar, the whole country of Senegal is at your steering wheel. And when you book that car hire with Wotif, you get our own special kind of teranga. We’ll share the best deals on the web, all in one place, so you can spend more time travelling and less time booking. See you on the road!
