The Northern Atlantic Coast Sights

Merdja Zerga (Blue Lagoon)

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Fodor's Review

Moulay Bousselham is at the head of Merdja Zerga (the Blue Lagoon), which gives its name to the 17,000-acre national park that contains it. This is a major stopover for countless birds migrating from Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom to Africa: the birds fly south at the end of summer and stop at Merdja Zerga in September, October, and November before continuing on to West Africa and even as far as South Africa. They stop off again on their way back to Europe in spring, so spring and fall are the times for bird-watching. The pink flamingoes on their way to and from Mauritania are particularly spectacular.
