Sierra Leone and Gabon
We would like to visit Sierra Leone (Tiwai Island and Gola NP), but there is little info about mammalwatching over there. Has anybody been there already? If so, what kind of mammals did you encounter? Is there a good chance to see the Diana monkeys?
We would also like to visit Gabon. Our main focus would be to observe, film and photograph mandrills, but apparently many tour operator have stopped to go to Lopé NP, due to several reasons. We also heard that radio tracking mandrills by WCS has stopped altogether. By chance we came across a trip report about Ledeki Park. They have got habituated mandrills, but I’m a bit worried that a visit over there is more like visiting a zoo.. I would be very gratefull if any of you has got some more infos about both places and if it is worth to go there at all.
Thank’s a lot for your help.
