Silversea Luxury Cruises A Dakar

Dakar

Big, crowded and chaotic, Dakar can seem like a dirty mess not worth the effort, but relax and dig in—this is emerging Africa. The city is progressing quickly as the country develops, and already Dakar is home to many worthy restaurants and thumping nightlife. Historic sights are here, as well as nice beaches. But keep your eyes open, especially at markets, in shopping areas, and at top tourist attractions, where pickpockets, muggers, and hustlers work the streets.
