Adventure / wildlife trip


This popular tour allows you to explore one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in the country. 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 Jeep 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 adventure experience. Also enjoy how salt miners extract the salt from the lake, put it in small boats and take it to the shore. Enjoy the view of mounds of cooking salt.
We will also have the opportunity to visit a traditional Fulani village to meet with the chief and interact with the locals.
After lunch, proceed to the Bandia wildlife preserve for a mini safari. Upon arrival, we will board the 4WD to spot Rhinos, Giraffes, Zebra, Buffaloes, Monkeys, Crocodiles and many bird species.
Transfer to your hotel at the end of the trip.

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!
