This popular tour allows you to explore the most beautiful natural phenomenon. The pink Lake is a nice option to get away from the city a bit and the drive from Dakar offers great views of rural life. . Upon arrival , we will be boarding the 4WD to experience how the algae, attracted to the salted water, cause the pink color. The 4 WD tour through the sand dunes and along the Atlantic Ocean, offers a unique experience .

A Recent Review of this tour

Not only did Oumar take us on a wonderful tour of Bandia and the Pink Lake, but he also took us to the airport to try to recover our lost bag and helped us locate a power converter (at our request). He's the best! And Mr. Diop's reputation as a world famous driver was on full display. Many thanks to them both!
