La Terre des Origines
Welcome to the land of the "Big Five", the five most symbolic animals of Africa: the lion, the elephant, the Cape buffalo, the rhino and the leopard. This fascinating trek around wildlife occupies eight hectares of steppe and savannah land. The Country of Origin, glowing, warm and primitive, submerges us in the cradle of mankind.
Here giraffes, rhinos, antelopes and cheetahs are in close contact with wart hogs, hyenas and many other animal species. The eastern fringe monkeys observe us from the treetops while the prosimians start playing around when they notice us. Among the heady rhythms of djembas we discover a large Tamberma village (from the border of Togo and Benin) with houses made of red earth and with thatched roofs. A fishing village on stilts, surrounded by pirogues, invites us to palaver in the hut of the chief, the school, the traditional grocery store, the home of the voodoo priests, the music, the meeting hut or the barbershop.
