We left Friday for Park W, driving on miles and miles of washboard and spent a couple of days in the park, one of Niger's world heritage sites. (It's fun to look at the unesco list and see how many you've seen.) The animals at Park W can be elusive and we've had friends who drove down and saw only gazelles and guineafowl. But we got lucky and saw an elephant in our first hour there! We found lots of bushbuck and antelope, Peter saw a lion, the monkey troops were running around and then we fell in love with warthogs.
