TJ is the best guide you can think of. He picked me up on time at my hotel and drove us to the ferry where he bought tickets to cross the river. On the other side of the river his driver in a 4x4 was already waiting to go for Senegal. Both were very funny and talkative and could it was more like going on a trip with friends. TJ knows all the people at the border/ferry and everything was very efficient. We were in the Safari park in no time (considering the distance and broder crossing to Senegal) and could drive in to the Safari park right away. Having a smaller car inside here is definitela a plus, because it makes everything more intense. We were able to spot a giraffe and antilopes and these little piggies known from lion king, but the tall grass made it difficult. Maybe dont come after the rainy season if you want to see lots of animals. But even just driving around and enjoying the nature and the impressive trees was amazing. On the way back we stopped at a local restaurant to get some food because I was hungry, before drivong back to the ferry. TJ is a fun guy, very intelligent, and definitely someone who will have a good time with. Higle recommended.
