Situated in West Africa along the Atlantic coast, Senegal is a small country with a big reputation for its rich culture, colonial towns, vibrant music, and nightlife. It is named for the Sénégal River, which marks its eastern and southern boundaries. Hotels in Senegal offer visitors much to explore in this top West African tourist destination.
The cuisine in Senegal hotels is centered around fish; fresh juices that include ginger; rich sweet desserts served alongside fresh fruit; and coffee or tea. Dining in Senegal is a special experience that rivals any four-star French restaurant.
Tourists looking for a cheap Senegal hotel deal should consider major cities like the capital, Dakar; Touba, with its spectacular Great Mosque, which is one of Africa's largest; or Thiès, which is internationally known for its tapestries. To find the best rates for rooms in these cities, book reservations on Expedia at least two months in advance of travel.
When visiting Dakar and enjoying the Senegal hotel packages, be sure to visit the city's beaches, colourful markets, and La Maison des Esclaves, which is important historically as it was the main centre for the exportation of slaves from the country. Senegal has just two seasons: dry and wet. The dry season is December through April, which makes it the most popular time for tourists to visit.
Tourists who have obtained cheap hotel deals in Senegal should plan for a few days at the Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary. Some of the hotels offer bus tours through the sanctuary; the drive is also easy from the city of St. Louis. Plan to visit the sanctuary from mid-November through the winter when migratory birds are stopping and nesting.
Many Senegal hotel deals include private access to beaches as well as discount or free sightseeing tours through the historic neighbourhoods in major cities. Tourists staying in the coastal cities can also take advantage of low prices for water excursions on sailboats and yachts as well as water sports like water skiing.
Hospitality is so important to the Senegalese that it has become a part of the culture. Visitors are welcomed with open arms in all areas of the country. When travellers get to Senegal, the welcomeness that they feel makes them never want to leave this tropical land.
