Compared to several other parks we have visited this park does not stand out. We saw some Elephants and Antillopes but not many and not close. Roads and facilities are pretty poor. Lodging just before the entrance to the park were poor.

We decided to visit Nazinga because our elephant sighting in Pendjari National Park was fleeting and we left Benin wanting more. We heard that elephant sightings in Nazinga are pretty much a sure thing. We hired a car from Ouagadougou and drove down to Nazinga....More

Okay, the place is a bit rough and worn but I love watching elephants. Go once the acces road is dry and the bush has dried up. Unfortunately this can be when it is too hot to sleep. Phone ahead with a large group and...More

Charging elephants, timid monkeys and lazy crocks seem the norm on this African Safari. We frequent Nazinga 2-3 times a year. All though you are not guaranteed to see a ton of elephants the chance is great. Rustic hut sleeping always make an interesting sleep...More

If you compare Nazinga to East-African parks, you can't have the same level of expectation but you will see amazing wildlife for a very low price. We had rented a car from Ouagadougou and hired a guide to come along with us (mandatory). He took...More

Came here hoping to see elephants and weren't disappointed! The hotels are ok, some more pricey than others but all clean and in great places.

A nice spot in the south of burkina that has three options to stay in. One out side of the gate with two in the park. Cold beer, good food and the ability to bring your own. Kids loved the Elephants and other game.

Hi; It took us about two and half hours to get to the park. After leaving the main road the road is not paved and vary sandy. The entrance fee to the part was some 25 USD if I remember right. Not very expensive. But to enjoy... More
