Excursion to Lac Rose from Pointe-Sarène - Senegal


1/2 day

Departure from your hotel for Lac Rose, the last stage of the Paris – Dakar Rally. 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 between the sand dunes and the beach … guaranteed sensations! Return to the hotel.
