The bush-fires are controlled!

Thanks everybody for your kind messages following the bush-fires. They are now under control but we must remain vigilant. These bush-fires are sadly very common during the dry season (Nov-April) because all the vegetation is extremely dry (the haut Niger National Parc is home of one of the last dry forest of West Africa) and bush-fires can travel for miles several days in a row. They are also fueled by the Harmattan, a hot wind coming directly from the Sahara.
