A large male Warthog

Entrance to the Zoo's Bar and Restaurant .. where cold soft drinks and beer are served.

The Zoo staff .. resting in the shade at lunchtime next to their motorcycles .. a common form of transport in Bamako.

The Bamako Zoo entrance .. motorcycles neatly parked.

Right next to the Zoo entrance .. a large investment is obviously being made with grand entrance gates, lawns being laid in rocky landscaped areas and a large area of land being cleared inside. Is this the new Zoo I asked ? Sadly no .. it is a new Hotel being built !
