Glamping and wildlife
Fathala Wildlife Reserve, http://www. fathala.com/ , offers glamping, with threecourse meals and luxury air-conditioned tents, near the Gambia border, about 160 miles (258 kilometers) from Dakar, depending on your route. Excursions range from jeep safaris to mangrove boat tours. The attraction started as a conservation project for an antelope, the Giant Derby eland, but animals from other parts of Africa can be seen here too such as zebras and giraffes.
The lone rhinoceros is known for his nightly pilgrimage to the smartlyplaced watering hole in front of the dining area. It’s dinner with a show.
