ZSL #006: Wildlife of the West African Savannah: unfamiliar and under threat

The West African Savannah stretches 1,600,000 square kilometres across 12 countries, ranging from dense rain forest to arid grassland. It once hosted rhinos, giraffes, lions and other charismatic megafauna more familiar from East African safaris, but populations have declined over the last 40 years. Despite working in an area of economic pressure and political unrest, Monni’s guests celebrate conservation projects that work with governments and local communities across national boundaries to conserve the region’s remaining cheetahs, wild dogs, and remarkable ‘desert-adapted’ elephants.
