So named for its pink waters, the color is particularly visible during the dry season, November through May. The lake also has a salt collecting industry in which many salt collectors work and are available for observation during a boat ride on the lake. Lunch is provided and optional activities include a camel ride or an ATV ride over the dunes. Morning pick-up from your lodging and after return to your lodging.
The House of Slaves on Gorée Island was reconstructed and opened as a museum in 1962. Captured people from all over West Africa were held in the building in great numbers and from there transported directly to the Americas. More than a million slaves passed through the doors of the house and then through its 'Door of No Return' to board ships. Today, the island is a peaceful retreat for the city where you can walk quiet streets, see colonial architecture and have lunch.
