Starting from Dakar, you’ll take a private transfer to the spectacular Bandia Nature Reserve. Once there, you’ll meet your local guide and enjoy a two-hour mini safari.

As you explore some of its 8,600 acres, you’ll have the opportunity to spot iconic African animals like giraffes, antelopes, rhinos, gazelles, jackals, and ostriches as they wander the reserve freely. Bandia also has a wide array of birdlife. Be on the lookout for some of the 120 species that call the reserve home.

After your open vehicle tour, stroll to the crocodile pool and the park’s tortoise sanctuary. Enjoy a cold drink and snack by a waterhole while buffalo, crocodiles, and monkeys quench their thirst. You’ll then transfer back to Dakar where your tour comes to an end.

Please note: This excursion is subject to weather conditions.
