  2. Distance: The distance from AIBD to Dakar is approximately 45 kilometers (about 28 miles). Depending on traffic, the journey can take between 45 minutes to a little over an hour.

Distances to Other Cities from AIBD:

  1. Thiès: About 30 kilometers (around 18 miles) northeast of the airport. The A1 toll road connects AIBD to Thiès.

  2. Mbour: Roughly 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) south of the airport. You'd head south on the N1 road.

  3. Saint-Louis: Located about 195 kilometers (around 121 miles) north of the airport. To get there, you'd primarily use the N2 road.

What You Need to Know About Driving in the Area:

  1. Tolls: The A1 road from AIBD to Dakar is a toll road. Ensure you have some local currency (CFA francs) to pay the toll fees.

  2. Road Conditions: The main roads like the A1 are in good condition, but once you deviate from major highways, you might encounter roads that are less maintained.

  3. Driving Behavior: Watch out for unpredictable driving habits, pedestrians, and occasional livestock on the roads.

  4. Safety: Avoid driving outside major urban areas after dark due to reduced visibility and lack of street lighting in some areas.

  5. Navigation: Having a reliable GPS or a local SIM card with data for using apps like Google Maps can be very helpful.

  2. SUVs or 4x4s: Recommended if you plan on traveling to more remote areas or off the main roads. These vehicles offer better ground clearance, which can be beneficial on uneven or rough roads, especially during or after the rainy season.

  3. Fuel Efficiency: Given the potential for long distances between destinations, it might be worth considering a car with good fuel efficiency but dont worry about the mileage as we offer unlimitedd.

When renting a car, before setting off, familiarize yourself with the vehicle, checking for any pre-existing damage, and ensuring all essential functions (lights, wipers, horn) work correctly.
