"The Lommel Sahara is a nature phenomenon! In the middle of an extensive coniferous forest" in Belgium

The deep blue lake and the unique fauna and flora make a walk to the Lommel Sahara a trip that you will never forget.

It may sound strange but the protected nature area thanks its origin to … nature pollution. The emanation of the former zinc factory made the green planting disappear like snow in summer. The result: a withered landscape, covered by white sand. In order to avoid the extension of the sandy plains, a new forest was planted a long time ago.
