This remote village south of Niokolo-Koba National Park (and 12 hours from Dakar, two hours from the city of Kedougou) anchoris a 13,000-hectare (50-sq.-mi.) community reserve. The spread includes two campgrounds and a variety of safaris are offered to spot not just more than 300 types of birds but also 46 species of mammals, including five kinds of primates - the most prominent being 200 to 300 chimpanzees. The reserve's other star attraction is without a doubt its spectacular waterfall dropping 100 metres (328 ft.) into a natural pool that's great for swimming.
