    • Road travel Senegal.

      Dakar May 14, 2014 at 1:32 PM

      Is a small 2 whel drive car up to driving on roads in Senegal or do I need a 4wd. I am not concerned about diferences between how people drive compared to western countries,since I have driven in countries with truly bizare road behaviour before,only whether a 2wd compact can handle the roads.

      Driving around Senegal or Public Transport?

      Senegal Feb 23, 2014 at 1:30 PM

      Hi everybody
      Will be visiting Senegal for 8-9days next month. We would like to go up north to st louis, lac rose, then to lompuol kaolack, Sine Saloum. Anyway, it's a first idea. My question, would you recommend public transport or hiring a car and driving ourselves or hiring a car and driving? We are on a budget holiday so trying to keep things cheap but at the same time we want to get the most out of the short time we are there... Any tips or advice is welcome
      thanks!

      Flights from Dakar to Ziguinchor

      Senegal Aug 23, 2013 at 12:07 AM

      Hey everyone, I'm restricted for time on this trip to Senegal. I'm going to be booking flights from Dakar to Ziguinchor return. I just wondered if anyone has used Senegal Airlines/Deccan Air for this particular stretch before or recently? How reliable are they? Normally I'd take the ferry but it doesn't get me back in time for my flight home. Any feedback much appreciated, thank you

    • How to hire a driver in Senegal

      Senegal Jul 18, 2013 at 5:46 PM

      I will be visiting my daughter in Senegal for two weeks this fall. I would like to hire one driver for the period that I am there. Between the two of us, we do pretty well in French and Wolof, but I would like to avoid the perils of sept-places and public transportation. Apparently Hertz no longer offers chauffeurs along with rental cars. Can anyone suggest another source for reputable drivers for hire?

      shopping for Music and fabric in Senegal

      Senegal Oct 20, 2012 at 1:48 AM

      I´ll be in Senegal shortly, and while I have a tight schedule, I hope to be able to shop for some music and fabric while in Dakar and St. Louis. Can anyone help with addresses and prices I should aim for? Love the Congolese kitenge and Nigerian waxed cotton in particular, and they are more difficult to get in East Africa, so I hope I can go on a shopping spree. I read on LP that there is a shop in St Louis where I might find stuff, but that info is from an edition from 2004, so I have no idea whether it´s still up to date.

      thanks for any input!

    • April NY to dakar how to fly in

      Senegal Oct 27, 2011 at 8:10 AM

      how to???? travel agent?
      Money is an issue..but as my wife and I do not have unlimited time nor strength... direct travel is the goal.. Any input or experience to guide us with would be great. This is proving not an easy thing to plan.. On a budget. My wife and I are traveling to see our kid in the Peace corp. We are interested in comfort, adventure and not too long of trip with many transfers. Direct would be nice but seems impossible.

      I noticed when using an internet flight search engine( booking buddy) , some flights are 20 hours and more. So now I have an idea. But first the easy way:

      The easy way is.... I could fly to DC cheaply and then stay over so we could fly direct ( south African air)the next day. Do you all find it best to book that as a one combined trip ? Searching only NYC to Dakar. Or look for a separate NYC to DC deal, then booking an additional flight to Dakar? Clear?
      So DC is nice but it is not Paris.
      Plan b
      If we skip the DC connection.. it is a long, minimum 6-9 hours layover where ever we go. So maybe I can book a flight that stops in Morocco, or Brussels? Stay a night. Does that usually cost more?

      How does one do that? Airfrance actually has a deal that allows you "multiple" stops so one could stay in Paris for a night and enjoy before moving on. Great and there would be no further questions but the trip back to NY is non direct 20+ hours... OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!... So any input? .
      What have you experienced folk done? what would you do?Use a travel agent?

      Senegal Nov 9, 2009 at 7:27 AM

      Hello everybody, this year in Christmas holidays I have decided to return to Senegal again, to the Casamance region. It is the eighth year that I go, always by my account. I recommend to go at everybody and this time, - Christmas time- is the best because there is no rain and either mosquitos.
      But I have a problem this year : there are no regular flights from Dakar to CAP Skirring or Ziguinchor and I am trying to organize for renting a small plane taxi, I need three persons more ( we are two). The cost for 5 people with suitcases including is about 800 Euros to CAP and 1000 to Ziguinchor, are something expensive, but I thing to save time is the best thing. So if somebody wants to go with us please contact me in my direct email : mjprocura@wanadoo.es
      (We will go the 30 or the 31 of December. and return 8 or 9 of January. (The prices are for one way; roundtrip it would be the double 1600 Cap, 2000 Ziguinchor) Thanks
