Executive power isexercised by the government. Legislativepower is vested in both the governmentand parliament. The Judiciary isindependent of the executive and thelegislature. Senegal is one of the fewAfrican states that has never experienceda coup d'état. Léopold Senghor, the firstpresident after independence, resignedin favor of his Prime Minister, AbdouDiouf in 1981. The present president,Abdoulaye Wade, was elected in fullydemocratic elections in March 2000.Senegal has a reputation fortransparency in government operations.The level of economic corruption thathas damaged the development of theeconomies in other parts of the world isvery low.

The Tukolor settled in the Senegal River valley in the 9th cent., and during the period from the 10th to 14th cent. their strong state of Tekrur dominated the valley. The Tukolor were converted to Islam and in the mid-11th cent. a group of them participated in establishing the Almoravid state, centered in Morocco. In the 14th cent. the Mali empire expanded westward from the region of the upper Niger River and conquered Tekrur. In the 15th cent. the Wolof established the Jolof empire in the region between the Senegal and the Siné rivers. Jolof was made up of a number of states (including Wolof, Cayor, Baol, and Walo); internal rivalries led to its breakup in the 17th cent. After centuries of colonization, Senegal gains its independence from France in 1960. Since then, 4 Presidents leaded the country.

Main meals often consist of rice dishes. Couscous and millet also form the basis of
many dishes, with protein provided by meat, peanuts or fish.
The favourite national dish is thiéboudienne, chunks of fish stuffed with herbs,
served on a bed of rice and vegetables. Another popular meal is yassa poulet,
grilled chicken marinated in an onion and lemon sauce.
One of the most common drinks is bissap, which is made from hibiscus, sugar and
water. Ginger juice (gingembre in French) is also popular, as is bouyi, a thick
sugary drink made from the fruit of the baobab.
Senegal has it all: it is one the most beautiful countries of the
West African coast. Most tourists come for the region’s exceptional
weather—more than three thousand hours of sunlight per
year—and dazzling, sparsely populated beaches. But Senegal
also offers a broad variety of crafts and textiles, and the
country’s six major game parks and reserves have great
opportunities for hunting, bird watching, and ecotourism.
The Senegalese capital, Dakar, is known for its nightlife, and the country boasts one of Africa’s
most varied music scenes. French jazz, American funk and hip-hop, and percussion-based genres all
thrive in the country, and Senegal’s many musical exports include Youssou N’Dour, Daara J,

Senegal’s beaches are among the most photographed in the
world and are not to be missed. Some of the best (and most popular) beaches near Dakar are the ones on the Île N’Gor and Toubab Dialao, a
site famous for its stunning red cliffs. Beaches farther south of Dakar are generally larger and less crowded, the Petite Côte spanning over 94 miles (151 kilometers.) The Casamance
region is known for its beaches as well, and the region is
welcoming to tourists. Resorts in the city of Saly, near M’bour, offer a variety of water sports, including jet skiing and scuba
Gorée Island: An important stop on the slave transport route from the 16th to the
mid-19th century, the island is a short ferry ride
from Dakar. It has a number of historic forts, houses, and museums, including La Maison des
Esclaves, where visitors can see where slaves and their traders lived while waiting
to be transported to the New World. Despite its unpleasant history, the island is known for its
beautiful Mediterranean architecture, and many
travelers find in the Île de Gorée a welcome respite
from the hustle and bustle of Dakar.
Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine, a $27 million dollar solid copper statue, the tallest in the world! An elevator will take you to the top for a full
view of the city and terrific pictures of the surrounding areas.
Lac Rose: Also known as the Pink Lake, this shallow,
salty lake is one of Senegal’s most popular tourist destinations. On sunny days, the water
appears bright pink, owing to the water’s high salt
content. Tourists are welcome to swim in the lake’s warm waters or
watch the local salt traders scrape salt from the lake’s
bottom by hand. Some inns offer horseback riding
in the area.
Despite everything Senegal has to offer, you could easily schedule
your entire trip within Dakar, the country’s capital, which has a population of more than 1.5
million. Open-air markets sell art, Senegalese food, jewelry, and
many other items, whose prices can often be bargained down to
very reasonable levels. The museums, especially the Musée
Théodore Monod (for African art) and the Institut Français Léopold Sédar Senghor (for African art of French influence), are on a par
