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. Several stops in villages along the river will give You the possibility to take a look at the daily life of villagers Fulani and Bozo.
