We recommend traveling to Senegal anytime from November to March, the weather is dry, cooler than during the rainy season, and not so humid. Whilst here hop on a river cruise on the Senegal River, attend the Saint Louis Jazz Festival, go surfing, visit Ile Goree and the Maison des Esclave, or take a trip to the Pink Lake. Visit a national park to see all the incredible wildlife this country boasts or lay on one of the sandy beaches.
