We wish you an enjoyable festival.
After closing and a short sleep we take the track at about 8 o'clock to reach the pinasse ahead, and then you can digest the emotions of the festival.
After a quiet night under the stars, two days full of discoveries: the immense Lake Debo, many birds, and even with a little luck some hippos. During the cruise you can also see all those activities in the Niger such as fishing and harvesting of rice.
