Travel to Niger

Niger is a nation of stories. Much of its history is drawn from the independent histories of its many different ethnic groups. Together, they have come to live in a single state that is the largest nation in western Africa.

Much of the country is rural, filled with desert plains and sand dunes, though the southeast has a stunning rolling savannah to explore.

The climate and heat of Niger can make it be a challenging destination for some, but there are some amazing opportunities to be found. The town of Ayorou is just one example. It is a riverside community with a colorful Sunday market that cannot be missed. From Ayorou, you can also schedule a pirougue tour to see hippos.

A visit to W National Park should also be on the agenda. It is a trans-border park, shared with Benin and Burkina Faso, where you can find elephants taking a bath and numerous other forms of local wildlife. Baboons, cheetahs, buffalo, and warthogs are commonly seen in the park. More than 350 different species of birds have been documented as well.

The last herd of giraffes in West Africa can only be seen via Koure. Local transport must be arranged for the driving safari and there may be a lengthy hike involved, but seeing the giraffes in the wild is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Niger offers a beauty and charm all its own. You will find an amazing adventure waiting for you here, which makes it a worthy holiday destination at any time of the year.
