This small well-run wildlife reserve is off the main road from Dakar to Mbour not far from La Somone. It has both indigenous birds and animals native to Senegal such as antelopes, warthogs, and monkeys, and animals from Southern and East Africa such as white rhinos and giraffes.
It also has a giant baobab tree that was used for traditional griot (minstrel) burials.
Bandia even has a restaurant which serves good wood-fired pizzas, overlooking a pond that attracts many spcies of native birds and reptiles.
