Upcoming Trip to Dakar, Senegal

Hello.....my name is Lizandra and I will be visiting Thies and Dakar, Africa for the first time. Since I don't speak French, I would like to know if I can hire a translator during my visit. If so, how can I obtain a contact in Senegal to assist me? I will be visiting Senegal on August 3rd.

Further, I would like to stay in a home setting verses a hotel. I understand Senegal have inexpensive rental properties that comes with maid services and meals. Is that true? If so, what agency can I contact?

Let me know and thanks!

Hello Lizandra and GREETINGS from Dakar!

Hiring a translator (or do you need a guide?) is this professional or for tourism?

Regarding rentals with meals, there is a listing right here on www.TripAdvisor.com - look under the bed & breakfast section!

Hi and thank you so much. This is my first trip to Senegal and I am very nervous. I want to ensure my trip is succesful, but don't understand French. Since I never been there, I will love to have a guide who speaks English. If you know of anyone, please let me know. I leave to Africa on 8/11 for about a week. This trip mean a lot to me and want to ensure I have a nice time. I will also travel to Thies for a day.
