Best Time to Book a Flight to Senegal

The best time to visit Senegal is from November to February, when the weather tends to be the sunniest without being unbearably hot. The shoulder seasons of December and March to June are also good times to see this country, especially since this is when many of the country's famed music festivals are staged. July to September is the low season, when hotels offer steep discounts but many tourist spots are closed due to the high temperatures and rainy days.

What to See and Do in Senegal

Senegal is a small country, but packed with things to see and do. Dakar itself is a fascinating city where the vibrancy and contradictions of Africa are on full display.

Further up the coast is the city of Saint-Louis, which was France's first settlement in Africa and which stands today as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its colonial architecture. For those who want to experience Senegal's more natural offerings, head to the Fathala Wildlife Reserve, where you can book a mini safari and get up close with rhinos, giraffes, monkeys, and warthogs.
