Pendjari National Park shelters some of the last populations of certain species, such as elephants, hippos, buffalos, and West African lions. Covering an area of 2,755 sq km (1,603 sq mi), the isolated reserve contains some of country's most scenic areas hidden amid its hills and cliffs. The lush vegetation thrives here thanks to the equatorial climate's annual rainfall. Go on a safari tour with a licensed guide to witness the majestic mammals, reptiles, birds, and fierce carnivore hunters as they roam freely in their natural habitat. During warm sunny days, remember to wear sunscreen or a hat.
