Salut and salam alaikum and welcome to our community of expats in Dakar! InterNations is the no. 1 social network of expats around the globe and a great resource to help you get to know other expats in Dakar, as well as settle into your new life in Senegal.

It can be a challenging experience to move to a new country and there might be a number of questions you would love to ask other expats who've already gone through the same process, such as "what are the most affordable housing options in Dakar?" or "which international school would you recommend in the city?". Through InterNations, you can easily get in touch and ask these expats those questions. The friendly and experienced expat community is happy to help answer your queries and give you the best advice they can about making that big move abroad.

Curious to explore other communities in Africa, e.g. our chapter for Abu Dhabi Expats? Or you might think of stopping by at our Brussels Expats community on your next weekend trip.
