As the city center is so busy and congested, those that will be primarily driving in downtown Dakar may want to rent a small vehicle. Sedans and compact models are quite common and are great choices for being able to drive on narrow streets and park in tight spots. If you will be exploring a bit more of Senegal outside of Dakar, or you are traveling with plenty of luggage, you can always choose an SUV instead. SUVs provide more room for cargo, which can often be convenient.
If you are driving in a residential area that is within the city limits, the maximum speed limit will be 50 km/h (approximately 31 mph). When you are driving on an open highway, it is common for the highest speed limit to be closer to 90 km/h (approximately 56 mph). If you are driving on a motorway, you can expect the highest speed limit that you will see to instead be closer to 130 km/h (approximately 81 mph).
It is quite common to find free street parking in most neighborhoods of Dakar, including the city center. You will also find that there are many private parking lots for you to choose from, with the prices varying depending on the owner and the location. If you are staying at a hotel, you will typically be able to benefit from either free or paid parking there. Some businesses and restaurants will also have their own private small parking areas that you may be able to find a spot in if you are one of their customers. Parking fills up fast, so it is recommended that you try to find a spot early in the day.
