Discover the Pink Lake from Dakar with a knowledgeable private guide
Today's discovery is one of the country's wonders: The Pink Lake. You'll be amazed to see that world famous Lake which over the past was the final stage of the famous rally: Paris- Dakar.
The pink color of the lake is due to some seaweed present in the water. The lake contains 380 g/liter, what's gives it the second salinity in the world after the dead sea.
But on the way to the Lake , we'll drive by the suburbs, where you can see the colorful bush taxis which are very typical of the country, some original markets along the road. In short various facets of our daily life.
On our arrival, we'll take a Jeep truck to see first the salt seekers, before starting our own rally, going around the dunes, the beach, doing the famous rally's tracks and feeling nearly the same wonderful sensations as if we were doing it. A stop is foreseen to visit a Peul village .
