Pygmy Hippo, Tai NP

Here’s another exciting trip for 2022 from Pictus Safaris.

April 9th – April 21st, 2022

One of the world’s most elusive mammals, pygmy hippo are a bona fide mammal-watcher’s mammal. Sightings are, of course, devilishly difficult to come by and, when they do happen, they usually only occur in the dead of night. Recently, though, sightings have become increasingly common on the Hana River in the southern reaches of Tai NP in the Côte d’Ivoire – so much so that some lucky visitors have had encounters in broad daylight, even with calves. This tour takes visitors straight to this spot and, when married with ample opportunities for primate-watching, birding and even the chance of bongo and Jentink’s duiker, this itinerary makes for a great new addition to the mammal-watching circuit in West Africa. 12 nights for £4,195.
