Saharan Dunes

Travel to Lompoul – Huge Sand Dunes in Senegal

Located on Senegal’s Atlantic coast, Lompoul is 145 km from Saint-Louis and is often visited on a day or overnight trip.

The landscape of huge sand dunes is more akin to Mauritania or nothern Mali rather than Senegal. A campement was established in the heart of the dunes, providing an opportunity for travellers to experience a night nomad-style.

  • If Mauritania seems like too much trouble, take a camel tour at Lompoul.
  • Enjoy a picnic amongst the sand dunes then make a visit to Lompoul village.
  • Join an organised tour and explore the dunes and dramatic desert-like scenery.
