At the beginning of the year, we are entering the best time to realize your dream of #safari in the #Pendjari National Park. The coming months are the hottest months of the year, the best time to observe wildlife. The grass is short and the animals gather around the last water points.

The park is located in northern Benin covers 4,800 km2, it is the largest intact wild ecosystem in West Africa. It is the last refuge for the region's 1,700 elephants and 25% of the 400 critically endangered West African lions.

Your safety during the safari in the Pendjari park

In recent years and more particularly in recent months, security has been reinforced to guarantee you a safari in complete serenity.

In addition to the resources provided by the Beninese government around the park, African Parks, the manager, has a patrol of Rangers trained in the use of weapons, patrol and monitoring methods, navigation, and data collection, communication and first aid operations.

The park has a communication network that covers the entire park and is linked to a 24-hour operations coordination center.

Thus, for your safety, the guides are equipped with GPS and radio means in connection with the coordination center, in addition they have received detailed training on safety protocols.

Finally, the park has created new circuits further south in secure areas.

The implementation of all these means guarantees that you can make the most of your safari.
