      by ammahdee Online Now Aug 27, 2010 at 12:18 AM

      I am flying from New York to Dakar en-route to Banjul, Gambia & am having trouble finding a flight or ground transport to Banjul. Can any one give my any info? I arrive around 6am on a Saturday. I will take a bus, or shuttle, but prefer a local flight if possible, and as long as I don't have to sit in the airport for HOURS. I would appreciate any/all help that is worthwhile. Thanks in advance.

      My husband and I are going on a cruise to Dakar. We only have a short time. 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Soumbedioune and a city tour is one suggestion. Or should we go to Il De Goree? I am a travel agent and I want to see as much as I can to be able to tell my clients all about it. Thanks so much.

      by willsway Online Now Jan 24, 2008 at 7:08 AM

      Planning to visit Dakar in early February on business. Just a few questions:

      1. Any good hotel near the 'Sandaga' market area? An international chain hotel would be better.

      2. Is Dakar a safe place? I'd travelled to East Africa (Kenya & Tanzania) last year and found that they were not very safe and we were adviced to be back in the hotel before dark.

      3. What's the weather gonna be like in Feb?

      Any help will be greatly apprecaited.

      Thanks.

      We're four students travelling to Dakar from New York City on a project for 1 week in March, 2007. I would be grateful if anyone can provide some estimate of how much airfare would be (orbits and other sites gave too great a range--$1400-$4000!) and how much we should expect to pay for taxis from airport to center city. Would it make better sense to rent a car during the trip since we'll need to get around each day?

      Any tip would be appreciated!

      My daughter is in Dakar and needs to find an adaptor to use with her Sony camera. It seems the polarized prong in her american cord plug won't fit the adaptor she was able to buy in the Dakar marketplace. Before I have her file down the prong, I thought I'd find out if there is a store that may have a wider variety of adaptors. Thanks
