“Teranga”: The remarkable culture in Senegal


One of the most famous things about Senegal is hospitality. The Senegalese have a special word for it in their local tongue of Wolof. This word is Teranga. It does not just mean hospitality. It also signifies the solidarity and respect shown in a community.

No other word encompasses the spirit of this country like Teranga. It is no surprise that Senegal itself is called the country of Teranga. To the Senegalese, this is not just a word. It guides their way of life and a philosophy that has been passed down from generation to generation.

It is reflected in how the Senegalese treat themselves. It is even more palpable in how they treat their guests. In Senegal, tourists enjoy an unrivaled display of warmth and eagerness to help. This allows tourists to enjoy the diversity of Senegal.

There are festivals all around the year and a general spirit of fun and excitement. It does not matter if you are in the dynamic capital of Dakar or on the islands all around. Senegal’s rich culture will keep you sufficiently entertained.

The musical culture of Senegal is particularly rich and famous, a culture backed up by a history of growth. You can take this a notch higher by visiting the more rural areas, where you can enjoy traditional music like the Yela. The traditional musical instruments like the kora and tama will draw you in.

All in this, it is Teranga. That spirit of hospitality and community. It is what makes Senegal breathe as one and keeps the people united. This is a spirit you want to enjoy when you visit Senegal.
