Generous Country
Senegal boasts plenty of natural and cultural attractions to make it attractive to an international audience. The buzz surrounding the Senegalese music scene is justified, with mbalax dance music particularly popular and influential internationally. Street markets in the main towns, overlooked by the minarets of attractive old mosques, remain among top attractions in Senegal--they're ideal spots to get to know the local culture and eat and shop like a native. The wide river deltas rich in wildlife provide an alternative for visitors looking to escape city life and discover the country's natural charms.
