  • The "Safari".... if you can call them that, it was quite nice, but also not really any more. It went quite early in the morning from Gambia by ferry across the border to Senegal.The reserve is rather small... if you are lucky you will see a few giraffes, antelopes, zebras, warthogs. Guaranteed you can't compare that to a safari in Kenya or Namibia... for 105,- for us rather disappointing and totally overpriced, especially since one should pay for a lion tour an additional 30,-p.P. For me pure,,TOURISTENABZOCKE" You can see in the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, or in the safari park in Stukenbrock significantly more animals and it is also significantly cheaper.
