Bandia Wildlife Reserve

While other Senegalese parks are mainly dedicated to birds (Djoudj National Bird Park or Langue de Barbarie National Park),

Bandia is home to many mammals, which have been deliberately reintroduced to the region.

Among the animal species present in the park, one can particularly notice rhinoceroses, giraffes, large antelopes, dama gazelles, Derby elands, buffaloes, patas monkeys, vervets, warthogs, hippotragues, zebras, jackals or mongooses.

However, there are also nearly 120 species of birds, including ostriches, as well as giant tortoises, nile lizards and crocodiles.

In 1990 [ref. needed], Bandia was the first private reserve in Senegal.

All the burial mounds in the Bandia forest were classified by the Monuments Historiques in 20031.
