Bandia Reserve & Lac Rose Excursion - Senegal - Book online

Bandia Reserve & Lac Rose




Departure from the hotel in an all-terrain vehicle for the Bandia reserve, located about 30 minutes from Saly. Consisting of 1000 hectares, in the heart of a baobab forest, animals can move around in complete freedom and in complete safety.

Opened in 1997, this unspoiled place will allow you to observe with a licensed guide from the park giraffes, white rhino, oryx, impala, Cape elk, Derby elk, warthogs, buffalo, golden jackals, crocodiles, green monkeys… A great variety of birds can also be observed on the savannah and around the water point: small hornbills with red beak, gray herons, African eagles…

Then departure for Lac Rose where lunch is planned. The lake was born from a lagoon, which a movement of the dunes, along the sea, finally closed in the 15th century. It is located a few hundred meters from the ocean, in the middle of a landscape of dunes and bush. Its peculiarity is quite exceptional, it is pink when the sun is level and at dusk, the pink darkens until it takes on nuanced shades of mauve or purple.

Besides its color, its high salinity (300 gr / liter) places it in second position after the Dead Sea. Everything floats there. This salt concentration allows women from surrounding villages to directly extract the salt which settles at the bottom of the lake. Visiting the salt flats will allow you to witness the extraction of salt by the Fulani women from the surrounding villages. This exploitation, by means of peaks, is a windfall which supports a large number of families. Then, ride in an all-terrain vehicle on the sand dunes surrounding the lake, guaranteed sensations. Return to the hotel.
