Une réserve à ne pas manquer
Jul 2020 • Friends
Une réserve où les animaux sont omniprésents et espèces variées avec girafes, rhinocéros, buffles, phacochères, etc..

Le guide que nous avions pris avec nous dans notre voiture était en contact radio avec ses collègues ce qui permet d'avoir l'assurance de voir ce couple de rhinocéros.

Réserve de Bandia
Cette réserve est magnifique. C’est à faire absolument. Les animaux sont tous plus beaux les uns que les autres.
Nous avons approché les lions de très près. Ce fut une très belle expérience.
