Surprising Senegal - Budget Travel

Tourists use Dakar as a base, and cheap but modern hotels in the city center are not hard to fine. Try the four-star Hotel la Croix Sud (20 Avenue Albert Sarraut, +221/889-7878; lacroixdusud.net), a classy and chic hotel with renovated rooms with TV, private baths, and a sophisticated lounge in a 1951 building, in the center of Dakar near the main plaza of the city, Place D'Independence. Smart rooms start at a cool $108. A more simple option is the L'Oceanic Hotel (5 rue de Thann; +221/822-2044) near the main market in Dakar.

Dakar West Africa, Dakar city, Dakar Senegal tourism

Dakar is one of the undiscovered pearls of West Africa, although you might know it best for the annual rally that it lends its name to. And just as the Paris-Dakar Rally is not just any conventional rally you might be used to following, Dakar is unlike any African experience you might have undertaken. Exuberant and vivacious, Dakar has burst into life ever since it cast off three centuries of French colonialism in 1960 and it is almost as if the city has been racing against time itself to make up for every lost moment it had to endure. Dakar is dragging Senegal screaming and dancing by the [suite...]

Argentina BLOG » Post » Dakar Rally as a travel destination

The seven stages in as many days in Chile and the ubiquitous Atacama Desert form the heart of the Dakar Rally. The world’s driest region, 100 times drier than Death Valley sets the scene for four stages. From Copiapó via Antofagasta to Iquique and back again – the Great North, a plateau zone with the saltpetre-rich boulder and stone desert, is the most demanding part of the “Dakar” from the technological and sporting aspects. Iquique, the most northern point of the rally and popular holiday resort for surfers owes its pleasant climate and high humidity, in contrast to the weather [suite...]

Looking back at what was penned

Thursday 2/28/2008 9:05am Dakar, Ganalé Hotel Voila! I’ve arrived safely in Senegal. Thank God! I had a very good flight, enjoyed the food, and most of all, I am enjoying a book I purchased at the JFK airport called ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. In many ways I can relate to her experiences and her passions and I really love it. Right now I’m at the hotel. It’s pretty nice. I have air-conditioning and a TV! My supervisor will be dropping by at 12:40pm and we’ll have lunch. Hmmm…food. I’m actually pretty hungry. I wonder if I’ll like the local food. But that’s [suite...]

Damien Masterson » Blog Archive » Live from DAKAR - 3/10

Not too far from Timbuktu… Folks, the last year has been a whirlwind of activity, much of it centered around the African continent. Since my last update, I have returned to West Africa, spending a couple of weeks in Dakar, then a month in Abidjan, and now I’m back in the D-a-k-a-r. For those of you that have called my cell phone and gotten my voice recording, I say that I am out of the country “indefinitely”… My goal here in Dakar is to set up a small rehearsal/recording studio that I can use to produce a couple of albums, and to rent out at affordable rates to others. My work [suite...]

Arrival in Dakar, Senegal « Will's Way

Dakar airport arrival was relatively painless and practically on time at around 5:40am local time (Greenwich mean time). Descending the portable stairs wheeled up to the airplane, we walked to a bus that took us to the main terminal for baggage. In the bus, I chatted in French, the lingua franca around here, with a friendly guy about what I thought were the Dakar airport closures. He exclaimed with surprise: “Dakar airport will also close?!��? I asked what he meant and he clarified that it was Bamako airport that would be closed for renovations through November 7. So, that solved the [suite...]

Born to a family of entrepreneurs in Dakar, the capital of Senegal, on the coast of West Africa, Mendy credits her parents for encouraging her endeavors. “The spread of entrepreneurship is so in me that I always knew that I would branch out on my own,’’ she says. Both of her parents had side businesses in addition to their regular jobs, and Mendy and her five siblings, who all live in France, are following that path. “I grew up seeing that, so it was very easy for me to do,’’ she says, although she acknowledges that “easy’’ isn’t the best description for what she’s doing [suite...]

Dakar is NOT Senegal

After spending the night having an awesome campfire in a friends’ village we all headed to the beach – where we used to go when we were in training! We spend the night in really cute huts that were Senegalese but clean and adorable. And spent 2 days on the beach…before we left we visited our host families from training and ate at my favorite Senegalese burger shack JNext we headed on over to training. We were supposed to stay with new host families but after a few days the training staff let us stay at the center – basically this means we got more time to hang out with other Americans [suite...]

U.S. pressure leads to ban on beggars in Senegal (AP) +Senegal ...

For the first time in recent memory, the streets of Senegal’s capital are largely free of beggars after a police crackdown last week, when the government announced it was banning begging in an effort to comply with the wishes of international donors. Senegal’s penal code outlawed begging years ago, but officials say they recently felt pressure to impose the law because the U.S. has threatened to cut off aid if Senegal does not address human trafficking. Although they say numerous other donor countries and the World Bank have also pushed Senegal to address child begging, a letter from the [suite...]

We might we at the tail-end of a major financial crisis, with very little money to spend on any luxury, but it looks like some 200 people don't see racing in the Dakar rally as a "luxury". It's become a necessity for many to compete, despite enormous sums of money that are needed to be spent by even the lowest of the competitors. There are so many wanting to ride a motorcycle in the Dakar, that the entry list is closed for motorcycles 2 months ahead of schedule, and the waiting list is now so full that they could organize a 2nd race with it.

Mini Motos have been round in the UK for round ten years now. The first bikes were cobbled together with elements that were already available. Small 2 stroke engines, mainly from garden machinery, have been used. This kind of engine continues to be used today for just a few fashions and is known as an ‘industrial’ engine. But now the mini moto has been given an overhaul and has taken off in popularity. Mini Motos are true miniatures of their larger Super bike cousins.

Dakar Doings: Senegalese Words

A Few Things You Should Know About Dakar...

NO TOILET PAPER: This is some general information on traveling in Sub-Saharan Africa, though if Dakar is your first stop, here is where you will learn. Instead of t.p. people use water. Definitely something to adjust to, though it will get you clean if you do the work. If you are going to be adventurous and not be handicapped with a roll of t.p. everywhere you go, rolling with some hand sanitizer may not be a bad idea. 2. NO LEFT HAND: This may not apply to many of you, but it is relevant to me as I am one of the special ones, aka, lefthanded. Here in Senegal, lefthandedness does not exist. [suite...]

Tales from a Travel-loving Teaching Assistant: In love with Lisboa

A young couple also staying at our hostel joined us (they teach at an international school in Dakar, Africa), and we all enjoyed our time at the small, smoke-free, local hot-spot to get good food and a good show. Shenning and I split a meal of fresh bacalhau (cod… what Portugal is famous for), shrimp, onions, potatoes, and peppers, all of which came in a copper pot and soaking in a simmering sauce. Oh, how I love good seafood. Portugal’s unique musical tradition is called fado, soulful folk music accompanied by twelve-string guitars. Throughout our meal, the lights dimmed for a few [suite...]

A brother of one of the volunteers was in town so I joined them for a trip to Gorée island.  Gorée actually translates to "Good harbor".  After learning about its history, the name "good" is far from anything this place represents.  Between the 16th and 19th century, it was used as a transit island for slaves who were shipped across the Atlantic.  There is no need to go into detail about what the conditions were like because we have all taken history and know the terrible things our past entails.  It is now a tourist attraction as well as a place of residence for many.  The island is [suite...]

Tough Clothes For Rough Riders | Rally Dakar Videos

Ever since Hollywood embraced the veterans who, after the Second World War, called themselves Hells Angels and went looking for freedom and adventure motorcycle chic has always been in fashion. Bikers have a reputation for being tough and wearing a leather motorcycle jacket makes you look tough by association.
