About this book

This new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt Travel Guide: Senegal continues to offer far and away the greatest depth of coverage for this increasingly popular part of West Africa. With over 350 pages of detailed description and 40 maps, this remains the definitive source of information to a country that is often described as the whole of West Africa in microcosm.

This new edition includes details of the rapidly changing transport situation, notably the opening of the new international airport and the first bridge to span the Gambia River. All regions of the country are covered, including detailed information on access to Senegal's national parks, with detailed maps, itineraries, and practical information on transport, accommodation and eating for each region.

Senegal boasts a variety of landscapes and cultures that belie its compact size. Northern desert wilds give way to the rain-soaked Casamance, fringed by hundreds of kilometres of pristine beaches and the fantastically frenetic capital city, Dakar, surrounded by ocean and proudly perched at the westernmost point on the African continent. This smorgasbord of landscapes is all accessible within a day's travel, making Senegal the perfect choice for anyone looking to sink their teeth into West Africa, for the first time or the hundredth.

Natural assets aside, Senegal is home to a world of man-made delectations: Dakar's nightclubs throb well into the morning hours and offer a rare chance to dance yourself silly with superstar musicians on their home turf. With one of Africa's most prolific arts scenes, Senegal attracts numerous visitors for its cultural attractions, and this book provides a thorough and accessible introduction to the music, art, film, and literature of this most creative of countries.

Beyond the capital, Saint-Louis' charm is an enchanting throwback to the colonial glamour of the 19th century, and sleepy Île de Gorée is a haunting testament to colonial horror, as visitors peer through the door of no return, where thousands destined for the Americas glimpsed their homes for the final time.

With all new first-hand research, Bradt Travel Guide: Senegal is the only guide ready to take you to all corners of this enchanting land.

Biography

Sean Connolly first travelled to West Africa in 2008 and has been returning to study, work, or backpack around the region ever since. He's been working with Bradt Guides since 2011, updating guides to Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, Uruguay, Sierra Leone, and two editions of Rwanda, along with authoring the first edition Bradt Guide to Senegal. When he's not updating guides or discussing the many merits of camel meat, you may find him hitching a lift on a grain truck, chatting over a hot cafe Touba, or seeking out Senegal's funkiest records and best bowl of Thieboudiene. Raised in Chicago, Sean stays on the move whenever possible, though lately you'll find him most often in Berlin.
