Right outside of Senegal, there's a beautiful, surreal rose colored lake. The medicinal properties of the salt are well known throughout Senegal and the natural salt crystals are more popular than regular iodized table salt! Join Jembequeen and his crew on an excursion to take a boat ride, ride horses, and enjoy the lake like a local.
The tour starts at 6:00am, meeting near the airport. Eat a light breakfast, bring some fruit, bottled water and wear comfortable shoes.
Afterwards, a cooling off swim in Lac Rose and enjoy lunch at a nearby restaurant. Camel, horse & quads available to ride the dunes or along the beach and take a boat ride across the lake.
I am an American woman living in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. I moved here in 1999 with 3 children and haven't looked back! I have owned various business enterprises (do a background check for my tourism businesses on TripAdvisor and LonelyGoogle and look up my retail and wholesale auctions on eBay - just put 'SenegalStyle' in the search engines). Currently I run several businesses under the 'SenegalStyle' umbrella. What I am most excited about are our African drum and dance lessons - (see video above!) and drum school (€30.50 for 2 hours or $1550 a month, drum instruction 4 hours a day, room accommodation, breakfast & dinner). Our SenegalStyle African Drumming Lessons have been rated THE NUMBER 1 'Thing to Do' in Senegal by TripAdvior.com for years! Our SenegalStyle B&B HomeStay GuestHouse is a great 'home base' for Anglophone travelers (and others!) visiting this lovely Francophone country in fact, we're listed in the Lonely Planet Guidebook as a 'Recommended Guesthouse in Dakar.' Eco-friendly throughout with an on site, indoor organic garden, SenegalStyle is perfect for vegetarians as well as hearty eaters as meals are INCLUDED in the room rates! http://www.lonelyplanet.com/senegal/dakar/hotels/senegalstyle-bed-breakfast We also received the 'Certificate of Excellence' for 2014 (2012 & 2011 as well) for B&B accommodations in Senegal from TripAdvior.com, the internet's largest travel portal. (€30.50 pperson a night including breakfast & dinner). The flexibility of having an award winning B&B homestay guesthouse allows us to offer other services, ie touring and language programs for budget travelers and students at a reduced price. $1550 for one month of Wolof, the language of the Senegalese/Gambian people, French or Arabic and that includes course instruction by a real teacher (not a 'tutor' off the street), books, room accommodation and meals.
