  • The experience was terrible for the extra because we did the walk in the Park on the roof of the 4 * 4 we were fortunate to see many families of elephants with their babies because they got 6 am we met wild boars, monkeys, various deer species, countless birds , and krokwdiloys

  • If you want a first experience of safari to see elephants, the cobbs, a warthog, gazelles or monkeys, Nazinga is recommended. But not in November because herbs have grown during the rainy season and you won't see any animal or almost. The entrance is quite expensive and you will be disappointed. Go from late December or even in February, it will be much better. And if you are offered a ride to 45 000 CFA (for the 4 x 4, the guide and the Tower), the real price starts to 30,000 CFA.

  • It was a great experience! We got there Jan-10, 2019 at around 3pm, paid for 2 tours, one for that afternoon and the second for the next morning. We were satisfied with the first tour so we decided to go see the surroundings instead (went up the hill and visited a nearby village ). They don't have vehicles there if you just show up. So you have to make that arrangement before you get there. We used our own vehicle, but they too have people they can contact for you to rent vehicles. We saw the elephants and other species. The sky was pretty at night because it is so dark. We had power for 4 hours only, 6 PM to 10 PM, as we were told on arrival. That made it even more awesome! Real camping, if you know what I mean. Too bad my woman was too scared to stay out and enjoy the stars. The sounds of the whild life could be heard all night. The road was safe from Ouagadougou to Nazinga. Nothing to worry about.
  • Nice guide, interesting to watch several species of animals and trees
