Enjoy a stay in a quiet natural setting close to the lake made up of traditional huts that can accommodate from one to four people. The two individual boxes have a bathroom each (shower, toilet, sink), the other boxes share a sanitary space (3 toilets and 3 showers). A shared kitchen (stove, fridge and cookware) is available to all residents.
Several user-friendly and open spaces serve as dining, work and rest areas.

The space
This space is environmentally conscious. The traditional squares are thus in resonance with the lake and its nature. You can recharge your computer equipment using solar panels. Each room is equipped with individual solar lighting, beds with mosquito nets.
The space is secured by the permanent presence of a guard.
Shower water is at room temperature but it is possible to heat water for the chilly.
The camp can be privatized for groups of at least 10 people, if the squares are not enough, igloo tents can be made available. In addition, other services can be offered for groups (traditional catering, environmental discovery, etc.). If you have any questions, please let me know.

I'm based in Senegal and I've been hosting travelers from all over the world for 25 years, first via VMSF, then word-of-mouth and Airbnb. I offer two types of accommodations, a bed and breakfast in my family home, in Medina (Dakar) and traditional boxes in my estate at Lac Rose. I thank everyone in advance who comes to stay in the Medina where it is better to help young people by bringing books, slates and others rather than candies. The young people have set up a media library to help with the school plan. Personally, I have taken pleasure in initiating social actions such as reforestation, offering free evening classes, doing awareness actions against education against collaboration, initiating actions to clean our environment and at certain hospitals, creating workshops for the making of offal days and tables made from calbasses and beef horns, making exhibitions at the French Institute with low relief paintings made with wood sawdust. After that, in 1995, I started working with the Consulate of France's Social Service in Dakar by hosting a full-board for all the difficult French while the Consulate organizes their gatherings. Later, I worked with groups of 20 young people for years with VMSF, making discoveries and percussion and batik workshops. I also hosted young people in need from France, with my friend Jérôme, and I can tell you that one of my greatest satisfaction is to have allowed young people to find hope and take their own destiny. After that I organize group stays through Senegal with my friend, my brother Jerome, to allow people to visit Senegal.
