  • Great Elephant sighting. Never knew that thoses cute large mammals are so agressive. If you are visiting Burkina make sure not to miss Nazinga trip.. you can find also several wild animals there...  more »
  • The site is still beautiful, but the n fleet management is not serious. My wife and I have a we same unstuck the car, once the official guide to the Park has guided us on a wrong track full of water (there was a heavy rain the day before). We spent 45 minutes in the mud and looking for wood to move quickly, elephants n being only a few hundred meters. It was very disturbing, d all the more that the official guide was very concerned and no longer seemed to know what to do. We returned to camp, park managers have pretended to care completely despite our deplorable state in s... Conclusion: make sure you d have a very good guide, and don't you ventured not too on the small tracks in the rainy season. Hoping that the park managers to take the measure of the danger/risk posed by the lack of security and the absence of security guide training.

  • the site is interesting to visit many elephants, but rates are still expensive. The restoration of the site is very very average.

  • Safari of vision-possibility to see elephants between December and June. Nice but rates exaggerated for expats.

  • Visited in 2006. A ranch to observe animals but I think we can also hunt. Careful to not go to the season high herbs, otherwise it is not clear the animals. We crossed the road of an elephant who wouldn't leave the track. We waited for him to finish his meal of branches and let it go. unforgettable.
