Dakar Lives was born out of the lack of information concerning Senegal on the web, it was as simple as that. If you want to know what’s going down in a city, ask the locals, tourists writes yes, but sometimes they may not know what’s going on under their nose. With that in mind, Dakar Lives started as an Instagram account, posting beautiful pictures of Dakar it slowly grew to be the go-to place for anything happening in Senegal as a whole, consider it the youthful version of typical country guide.
