    The Lompoul desert (sometimes spelled Lumpoul; in French: désert de Lompoul) is a small desert (about 18 km2) located 145 km south of Saint-Louis, Senegal. It is characterized by orange sand dunes forming a landscape that is more akin to those of the Sahara and Mauritania than those of the surrounding area of Senegal (the Grande-Côte), and is a popular tourist attraction of Senegal. The desert is named after the closest settlement, i.e., the village of Lompoul.

    Day 3: Lompoul – Dioudj- Saint louis

    Stop At: Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary, North of St. Louis, Saint-Louis Senegal
    The Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary (French: Parc national des oiseaux du Djoudj) lies on the southeast bank of the Senegal River in Senegal, in northern Biffeche, north east of St-Louis.

    It provides a range of wetland habitats which prove very popular with migrating birds, many of which have just crossed the Sahara. Of almost 400 species of birds, the most visible are pelicans and flamingos. Less conspicuous are the aquatic warblers migrating here from Europe; for these, the park is the single most important wintering site yet discovered [1]. A wide range of wildlife also inhabits the park, which is designated a World Heritage Site. The site was added to the list of World Heritage in Danger in 2000 due to the introduction of the invasive giant salvinia plant, which threatens to choke out the park's native vegetation. However it was removed from the list in 2006.

    Day 4: Saint louis - Réserve de Bandia -Saly

    The Bandia wildlife reserve is a real ecological jewel in the crown of Senegal. It has succeeded in reintroducing much of the marvellous native flora and of some of Africa’s best loved animals. Many of which had gradually disappeared, some of them centuries ago, due to demographic pressure and poaching. In the grandiose setting of giant baobabs, thorny scrub and lush vegetation you will get a heart stopping sight of herds of big antelopes and gazelle.
    All this lies within the 3,500 hectares of fenced natural habitat
