Why you should do this
Less than an hour away from the capital city of Senegal Lac Rose is separated by narrow dunes from the Atlantic Ocean and, as expected its salt content is very high. Its salinity compares to that of the Dead Sea and it is actually impossible to do anything but float when you enter its waters. Its distinct pink color is caused by the Dunaliella salina bacteria, which is attracted by the lake’s salt content. The bacteria produces a red pigment in order to absorb the sunlight. The lake isn't always pink unfortunately, you can almost guarantee a pink view during the dry season (which lasts from November to June and less so during the rainy season from July to October. Even when the lake isn't pink this experience includes an epic sand dune ride to a secluded beach, good food, and lots of adventure.
What's included
  • Quad Bike or Jeep Ride
  • Beach Relaxation
  • Boat Ride To Salt Harvest
  • RT Transport from Dakar
  • Lunch
  • Bissap
