Dakar Flights Guide
The warm capital of Senegal is a large metropolitan area that has held an important port city since before colonial times. Dakar is the urban expression of African resolve for independence, and one of the most bustling financial centers in the region. Thousands of French expats call Dakar home, and though France still maintains a military presence, Senegal is very much independent.
Dakar by itself is an interesting place to visit. There are very high-priced boutiques, but also many street markets where the movement of everyday life in a major African metropolis is exhibited. Marche Sandaga is one such market—a mad rush of trade running through endless lanes of stalls. Marche Kermel is another. Dakar was founded on the Atlantic Ocean, and today seafood restaurants serve the day’s catch in Les Almadies. Out in the Atlantic is the Ile de Goree, an island with colonial ruins and an insightful museum about the slave trade. A ferry takes 20 minutes. Despite the controversy, the most popular site in Dakar is the North Korean-constructed African Renaissance Monument, which is larger than the Statute of Liberty.
The Leopold Segar Senghor International Airport receives flights from Air France, Delta, Virgin Nigeria, Emirates, Turkish Airlines and a dozen others.
