Lake Retba – The pink lake of Senegal
Located less than an hour outside outside Dakar, the salt-rich lake is quite a sight to see. Known as Lac Rose by locals – for its tinted colour – the area is pretty much a dead zone with little to see besides the magnificent colour of the water. You’re also likely to spot a fleets of boats and salt collectors extracting the ingredient from the lake. The best time to go is between November to June when the colour is said to be its most vibrant.
