The best time of year to travel to Senegal is between November and May, during the dry season. Throughout this period, the temperature tends to be around 25 degrees Celsius. However, between June and October, precipitation is very frequent and the temperatures sometimes 30 degrees Celsius or above. Of course, you can also travel during this period too – the rain showers do not tend to last longer than a couple of hours during the day, and the flora is magnificent. The only drawback of travelling during the rainy season is that certain roads, especially those leading to parks and nature reserves, are often closed.
