Trends / Adventure

Senegal has plenty to offer those who like to be active when they’re away from home.


Surfing is the biggest adventure sport in Senegal, with a long history of surf culture and loads of waves. Many of the most famous spots are centered around the capital, Dakar, which makes them accessible to visitors. Despite that fact, the spots are rarely crowded and the atmosphere is friendly. The beaches in north Dakar tend to be easier for beginners, while there are some challenging waves in the south for those with more experience.


The country is also a favorite among windsurfers, with Yoff Beach the most popular place to get out onto the water. There is good wind year-round and you will find a number of places to hire gear on the beach.


In the south of the country, Casamance offers a great place for adventurous boat and hiking tours. Island hopping through lush vegetation and along deserted beaches, you will be able to spot a huge variety of birds and other animals.


Heading off into one of the national parks with a Jeep and driver is another adventurous way to see the country. Check out Niokolo-Koba National Park in the southeast of the country.
