|We viewed game at Yankari National Park, Nigeria's first and most popular protected area. Unfortunately, game protection has been thin; poachers have taken most animals. We camped without fear of animal attack and peed in the remote bush at night. We didn't see many animals: warthog, waterbuck, crocodile, palm nut vulture, and a monitor lizard. The park is packed with people. Many Nigerians celebrated the Sallah holidays here. They brought their cameras and all seemed eager to take pictures of Western tourists - quite a turnaround to be the focus of pictures rather than focusing pictures. We felt like celebrities.
