Senegal and Gambia?

Wonder if anyone has sailed to these two countries and, if so, would you recommend them? When we go from South Africa we might stop here and Cape Verde before crossing the Atlantic.

Re: Senegal and Gambia?

I have not sailed there, but I taught with Project Overseas in The Gambia in 1982.

I liked the country and the people.

I visted Dakar many years ago. It was quite nice and friendly. I believe its quite popular the French cruisers.
