Tropical Senegal is lauded for beauties both natural and urbane. From its suave capital, Dakar - many travellers' favourite amongst the larger African cities - to its entourage of internationally known musicians, Senegal brings in more visitors than any other country in the region.
Much of its lands are lush and vital, especially when compared to the deserts that surround it. Many of its visitors are package tourists soaking up the sunshine in upscale hotels, but the best of Senegal - a good wander through its streets and plains - is free.
