Visit  (2 Answers)

Planning to visit Dakar in early February on business. Just a few questions:

1. Any good hotel near the 'Sandaga' market area? An international chain hotel would be better.

2. Is Dakar a safe place? I'd travelled to East Africa (Kenya & Tanzania) last year and found that they were not very safe and we were adviced to be back in the hotel before dark.

3. What's the weather gonna be like in Feb?

Any help will be greatly apprecaited.

Thanks.

Transportation  (3 Answers)

We're four students travelling to Dakar from New York City on a project for 1 week in March, 2007. I would be grateful if anyone can provide some estimate of how much airfare would be (orbits and other sites gave too great a range--$1400-$4000!) and how much we should expect to pay for taxis from airport to center city. Would it make better sense to rent a car during the trip since we'll need to get around each day?

Any tip would be appreciated!
