Lac Faguibine is a semi-permanent wetland lying to the north of the Inner Delta, about 80 km west of Tombouctou, on the boundary between the Sahelian and Saharan zones. It is oriented south-west–north-east and triangular in shape, 75 km long, up to 15 m deep and, maximally, 12 km wide at its north-eastern end. From this point a permanent swamp runs south that connects it with Lac Télé (site ML004).
See Box for key species. In addition, three species of the Sahel biome (A03) have been recorded from around Lac Faguibine; see Table 2.
