Lac Rose : our favorite tours and activities

Looking for an activity to do around Dakar? The pink lake or lake retba is an ideal excursion to spend an exotic day when you are visiting Senegal. Do not be disappointed if the lake does not display the color you saw on social media! Depending on the time of year the water offers blue, purple or bright pink highlights (in the dry season).

Beyond this natural curiosity, you will probably be impressed by the village of salt fishermen who work hard to extract salt from the lake. Nearly 24,000 tons of salt are harvested each year on this 3km² lake.

Many activities are offered on this site: Canoe trip, visit the dunes on foot, quad or camel and tasting of Senegalese dishes will be offered around the lake.
