Lac Rose

lac rose


1/2 day

Departure from your hotel for the Lac Rose, the final stage of the Paris – Dakar Rally. The lake was born from a lagoon, which a movement of the dunes along the sea ended up closing in the 15th century. It is located a few hundred meters from the ocean, in the middle of a landscape of dunes and scrubland.

Its peculiarity is quite exceptional, it is pink when the sun is overhead and at dusk, the pink darkens to take on nuanced shades of purple or violet. In addition to its color, its high salinity (300 gr/litre) places it in second position after the Dead Sea.

Everything floats there. This saline concentration allows the women from the surrounding villages to directly extract the salt that settles at the bottom of the lake. The visit to the salt pans will allow you to witness the extraction of salt by the Fulani women from the surrounding villages.

This exploitation, using picks, is a boon that supports a large number of families. Then, an off-road vehicle ride between the sand dunes and the beach… guaranteed thrills! Return to the hotel.
