Ziguinchor Vacation Packages
Dakar, which is the national capital, is situated 170 miles (274 kilometers) northwest of Ziguinchor.
When it comes to getting the best out of your holiday, it's worth remembering that Ziguinchor is just the tip of the iceberg; Senegal has been blessed with a treasure-trove of wonderful places to visit. Two examples of places in the vicinity of Ziguinchor are Cap Skirring, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast, and Kabrousse, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast.
If you need to escape the elements, you really can't go past Senegal's art museums. These are ideal places to soak up some of the local lore and culture and perhaps find a special souvenir.
Discover the region's trademark waterways. Surfing and boating are just two of the most popular ways to exercise here.
Local cuisines are an excellent way to get to know about an area. So be sure to spend time in some of the region's restaurants. Lamb and pea are frequently used in kitchens in this part of the world. Order some popular local dishes, for example thieboudienne (fish, rice and tomato sauce) and yassa (spicy, marinated fish/chicken). Banana fritters is a great choice to round out any Senegal dining experience. Fresh juice is popular drink to enjoy no matter the time.
As your adventures here draw to a close, spend what's left of your West African francs on last-minute keepsakes and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to the people you've met and the spots you've enjoyed.
