With the two french girls we deceided to go there because if you have your own car you don't pay for the 4x4 that they rent there. So at first we bought our tickets and our guide called "Mamadou", a very funny guy, and it was the beginning of the visit. We departed with the car and Mammadou showed us some monkeys that were not supposed to be there but they found the reserve nice for them so now they are a part of it. After driving few minnutes, we discovered a giant animal, really calm and nice it wwas a giraffe. We took a lot of pictures there, but mamadou told us to wait because there were a family very close. So we went on and saw some antelopes who were very scared seeing us. There also a thing which was impressive, it's the beauty of the baobab because they can take multiple forms and be giant.
After that, we saw the family of the giraffes, the son was too sweet but already very tall. Continuing on our trip, mamadou said suddenly : STOP!! He looked briefly outside and then had a big smile on his face. He got out the car yelling: WE WON, WE WON!!! We didn't know what it was about but we discovered a rhinoceros and his wife, eating some weed but we were all not so confident, we asked mamadou whether it would dangerous but he said no because he had his "gri -gri". We approached him and we could stroke his horn. His skin was really tough, it seemed like it was a rock.
Then we continued and saw different antelopes and mamadou picked up some fruits of the baobab called"pain de singe" which is really good when you can't go to toilet....
We finished the trip filled with wonder. We decided to join Joal fadiouth
