Dakar for two days?

Jump to last reply

I am going to be going to South Africa/Capetown next month but will have a 24 hour layover in Dakar coming and going there. I am in the process of getting some guidebooks read about Senegal but wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions as to what to do while there.

I had a friend who did the same trip get beat up in the face during the day there a few months ago while with a male guide,female and male friend so am nervous about leaving the hotel now. Some people have suggested going to the local orphanage to take small presents and help for the day-others have said that I should try and do some of the African markets.

Any thoughts,suggestions or insight? I really don't want to sit out by the pool all day till we leave.Thanks!
