Classic Burkina Faso - Burkina Faso
Here in the South Eastern part of the Volta Delta, Burkina Faso’s National Parks are readily assessable. Arli National Park adjoins Sindou Reserve in the west and Pendjari National Park to the south. The park is home to approximately 100 lions, 200 elephants and 200 hippos. Buffalo, baboons, green and red monkeys, boar, warthog, bushbucks, duikers and antelopes are not shy when it comes to strangers. Take a game drive to see the park's diverse wildlife. The best time for game viewing at the park is during the dry season when animals collect at the water pools at Tounga.
