Day 4

PINK LAKE (LAC ROSE) | BANDIA RESERVE SAFARI EXPERIENCE

We continue to visit the Lake Retba, also known as the “Pink Lake” located northeast of Dakar.  This lake is considered as distinctive as it boasts as one of the rarest natural lakes in the world. The lakes pinkish hue is as a result of the excessive amount of Dunaliella salina algae in the water that produce a red pigment used to absorb light, which in turn then provides the algae with life-energy.  The pink color is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its abundantly high salt content.  Today you will meet the “salt harvesters” with their colorful tackle, and interact with the Fulani ethnic groups living in the surrounding villages.

Continue to visit the Bandia Reserve for a typical African safari experience. The reserve basically has some monkeys, rhinos, buffalos, zebras, giraffes, antelopes including some bird species. The notable Baobab Tree does not go unnoticed.
