Senegal is one of the region’s most developed, democratic, and friendly nations, making seaside Dakar a prime spot to explore Senegalese culture and language.

When you explore the city and beyond, experience local family traditions, and pursue causes you care about, you’re assured a remarkable experience abroad.

  • Participate in cultural activities in and around Dakar.
