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.
