Senegal Expat Events

Embark on Senegal Expats Life

From various ports and harbour towns to places of religion and contemplation for West African Muslims, Senegal has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat Senegal community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the fishing industry, and the urban development in Dakar and Tambacounda. Expat living in Senegal surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
