Hundreds of crocodiles at Bazoulé

In Bazoulé,where the main group of this country lives, the Mossi, you should definitely take a look at the waterhole with sacred crocodiles. Chickens are used to lure crocodiles out of the lake, a spectacular sight to watch the crocodiles 'get out of the water'.There are several places with water and the crocodiles go from one part to the other by road. The inhabitants of Bazoulé live in harmony with the crocodiles, children from the village even take a bath in the water where the crocodiles swim. There are more than a hundred crocodiles living in this shallow lake about 200 meters wide.
