I would recommend going during the dry season and not the rainy season. You will probably see more animals but I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful lush vegetation... it was glorious. Rain storms can be intense but not long lasting... hearing loud thunder while in a tent is an adventure ! The staff is amazing, the lunch and supper were good. The breakfast however was terrible (omelette with kraft slices) and no espresso/cappuccino or herbal teas. This is a luxurious glamping experience and good coffee is a MUST. Books on the monkeys, birds and animals at the Fathala reserve would be a great addition in the lobby or the lodge. More educational info on conservation etc is strongly recommended. Also having some binoculars on hand for people would be great at the lodge and for excursions such as the sundowner on the mangroves and game drive. Overall it is an amazing experience. It just needs a bit of fine tuning. The boutique also needs some artisanal revamp... books on animals, wax fabric, jewelry etc... Maybe some proceeds going back to the community or villages or animal conservation. **Love my walking stick and was happy I could purchase it.

We were very satisfied with the trip. The lodge is clean and well equiped. The environment is very nice and comfortable. And the staffs in hte lodge are all nice and kind. And the price is reasonable for the luxury tented suits. The manager Ousmane gave us all the guideness and booked the programs for us for the next day Safari tour and to see the lions .

The Fathala team went above and beyond to prepare for our family getaway trip on the occasion of my birthday - made all reservations for our game drive accommodation and lion encountered (and organized for us two separate adults and kids’ encounters so our children could sleep in) And to top it all: even arranged a surprise birthday cake for me! Recommend Fathala 5/j to anyone wanting fun adventure and a new discovery in the heart of Sénégal! 100% fun guaranteed! Thanks to the amazing fathala booking and on-site team for their amazing service

All animals activities, in processing, out processing, lodge and restaurant are very good. But it isn't simple to have what we want during the booking process. Even if I came in Fathala to confirm my booking the day before.
