About
The Bandia wildlife reserve is a real ecological jewel in the crown of Senegal. It has succeeded in reintroducing much of the marvellous native flora and of some of Africa’s best loved animals. Many of which had gradually disappeared, some of them centuries ago, due to demographic pressure and poaching. With the exception of the big carnivores, you will be able to see most of the best-known African animals: white rhinoceros, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, giant eland, Cape eland, Oryx, roan antelope, waterbuck, western Buffon’s cob, greater kudu, nyalas, impalas, damas gazelle, red fronted gazelle, warthog, patas monkey, green vervet monkey, jackal, mongoose, crocodiles, giant tortoise, ostrich,and many more, as well as over 120 species of bird. With our private pick up , you ll have the opportunity to draw near animals and also to have more time to take pictures.

This natural reserve not far from Dakar is rich in lots of variety of wild animal such as rhinoceros , giraffes, buffaloes, ostriches, jackals, monkeys and a variety of antelope. A little Safari in the reserve of Bandia takes you back into the wild world of Eastern Africa. There are also some interesting serere burial mounds and a baobab tree where griots were once interred.

Eric was an amazing guide! I highly recommend him, as he was super friendly and great company on our excursion to Bandia Reserve. I recommend that you reach out to him first before booking as he offers highly customizable experiences that will meet your needs and wants during your visit to Dakar. One of many highlights was after tasting the monkey bread fruit from the Baobab tree, on our way back he purchased us a bottle of the juice. I wish we had more time to take in the rest of the city and surrounding area with him, as he was able to tell us a out each building as we drove through the city to the reserve. Thank you Eric for providing us a wonderful excursion!

Joseph and Colin are very kind, understanding, and easy-going people. Their kindness made me feel comfortable as soon as we met. The three hours of time spent with them seemed to be one hour. I'm so lucky to meet them. I thank you so much for taking my service.

After being out in a remote village for a week helping to build a school we only had time to book one outing before we had to fly home the next day. Grandma, son and grandson 12 years old who marveled at the experience, with lots of "WOW'S"
Eric provides a no-hassle, safe and entertaining tour service. We were met at our hotel right on schedule to go the Reserve de Bandia in a large 4x4 vehicle with plenty of room for daypacks and cameras. A quick stop along the way so he could purchase us large bottled waters AND a bottle of Baoboa juice because he said we just had to try it. He was right -it was tasty and refreshing on such a hot day, for sure. Nice touch, Eric!
Upon entering the reserve we met up with our guide to take us through the reserve who was pleasant, funny and knowledgeable about the animals and history of the reserve. He shared some exciting stores about a particular Baobob tree in the reserve, which I won't spoil - you'll have to go there to find out!
We drove on the dirt roads and came across many giraffes right on the side of the road and sometimes in the road. It was truly beautiful to see such gorgeous and healthy animals munching on the trees and underbrush like nature intended, unlike in zoos. We saw zebras, monkeys, ostrich, rhino's, crocs, warthog and so much more.
There was plenty of time to take pictures and we never felt rushed. We would only move on when they knew we were ready.
After the tour we had generous samples of several varieties of local fruit liquors and bought a few to bring home at a reasonable price.
We were driven back to our hotel, also right on schedule.
We highly recommend this tour service. They give very individual and personalized service and we are so happy we picked this as our one outing!
Thank you Eric
