About Senegal

Senegal, officially the Republic of Senegal, is a West African country located on the Atlantic Ocean coastline, and is often referred to as the "Gateway to Africa." 
After a long colonial era under France, Senegal gained its independence in 1960, and today, its economy primarily relies on mining investments, tourism, and agriculture.
Most of the population in Senegal is Muslim, with indigenous tribes such as the Wolof, Serer, Peul, Diola, and Mandingo communities. Senegal has successfully blended French culture with Islam and stands out among the few African countries that have remained free from internal conflicts.
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Senegal shares its land borders with Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, and Guinea and Guinea-Bissau to the south. Much like the rest of Africa, Senegal experiences typical tropical climate patterns. Rainfall occurs between June and October, while drought and extreme heat prevail from November to June. Despite these seasonal changes, the country maintains an average temperature of around 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year, with significant temperature variations between day and night.
The capital city, Dakar, is a strategic hub for maritime transportation between Africa, Europe, and America, and also boasts impressive landmarks and natural beauty. The Pink Lake, located within the city's boundaries, surprises visitors with its unique appearance, while the House of Slaves, converted into a museum from the colonial era, symbolizes the country's history of suffering. The Central Mosque in Touba is a sacred center for Muslims in the country and the region.
The Dakar Rally, one of the country's most internationally recognized events, stands out with its extraordinary route that includes crossing mountains and deserts, offering an exhilarating experience for rally enthusiasts. The Abene Festival sees the local community celebrating the end of the year with drumming and dancing. Held in December, this festival attracts famous percussion artists from Africa and worldwide, providing an opportunity to celebrate the New Year with the spirited Senegalese people.
Culturally influenced by France, Senegal offers a taste of French cuisine. Thieboudienne considered the national dish, is a delightful blend of rice, fish, and vegetables. Additionally, Diagga, a fish-based meal, and Maafey, a meat and rice combination, are often enjoyed by locals who use their hands instead of utensils when eating, which might seem odd to visitors.
