Dakar Expat Events

Make the most of your Dakar Expat Life

The westernmost city on the African mainland offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like Lake Retba or Lac Rose, a pretty little lake with a distinct rosy colour,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Senegal’s Tamkharit, up to getting a taste of traditional thieboudienne. The InterNations community helps you as an Dakar expat to enjoy your expat stay in Senegal to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Dakar and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺIs there a good alternative to the relatively costly CASINO supermarket chain in Dakar?ʺ up to ʺDoes all expat housing come with an air-conditioning system, or do I need to buy one extra?ʺ.
