Lying on the most western point of continental Africa, Senegal is most well known for hosting the annual Dakar rally. However with dozens of ethnic groups, several major religions and a history spanning several empires, there is much more to the country than the sandy hills seen in race coverage.

Matador articles describe what else there is to see in Senegal, with articles on learning French and studying abroad to volunteer opportunities and gap year programmes for environmental and community groups.
Photo essays show you what daily life is like and Matador writers give their opinions on what to do and what not to do.
