"A base camp for visiting the Sahel villages." Kaya by F_Meignant

Kaya Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 9 photos

Not a lot to do in Kaya.

It’s rather a good base for visiting the villages of the surroundings, in particular Manéga and Dibilou.

The most part of Kaya's atmosphere comes from the big lake and it’s “factories” of banco (bricks of dried earth for building houses).

One of my strange companions for breakfasts, on the terrace of the hotel.
Waiting for some pieces of bread (with butter, please)… and asking very much. Disappointed because there is no butter.
Funny, not really shy, not malodorous, not bad.
Simply ugly and insisting.
Also stealing the hens’ food. Funny to see the waiter running after them!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A good base, well situated hotel.
  • Cons:Nothing special in Kaya...

    Ha ha ha! You were really traveling like Africa does! Oh, the villages and the clever people living there! It is the right thing to do at times, to take their offers, and I am happy for you and Brigette.

    OMG you really drove that car ? Brings back some similar memories of a taxi ride in St. Louis.
