Although this is not necessarily viewing wildlife in its natural habitat (several of the animals are imported from South Africa or other parts of Senegal), we found it a very high-yield and well done reserve with a highly knowledgeable our guide (thanks Ibrahim). We got...More

I have been to Bandia twice- once in December and again the following April with my 4 teenage children and my mother. The kids absolutely loved it, as it is not a typical zoo with animals in cages or fake "habitats". They are seen as...More

This is really more of a zoo than a true wildlife reserve as many of the animals are not indigenous to the area. Nonetheless it is really well done on jeeps with a very knowledge guide. Definitely worth the visit.

A small game reserve, but one can get close to the animals. That is the best part of the visit. Except for Crocodiles, there are no other carnivorous on the reserve, which helps most of the animals to increase and multiply. The cost per person...More

We had a great visit . Start was a bit lengthy as not enough guides were available. Once visit started we were overwhelmed by the numbers of animals to be seen. Funny and professional guide. Park well kept and clean. Animals looking good and healthy.
