Sheltered area in the woods to escape the endless farmland in this area. Shaded area off the track in the woods. Just for regular size car/SUV.

This is the place in Gorno where you can register your visa. It's quite hard to find, and don't listen to Lonely planet coz that's the wrong place.

An amazing little spring with ice cold fresh water. Was quite busy when we were there with locals filling bottles.

Still works. Paid 128 TJS for one year Lada Niva. No idea what this insurance will do for us and hope we will never find out...

The ferry operates from 8 to 20 hr , so very quite in the night. Nice views along the water and plenty of space to park. Little beach for swimming as well.

We stayed here 1 night. Parking lot is just nearby a big beautiful garden with trees, picnic tables, and a pond. No facilities except pit toilets. Quite a lot of mosquitoes when night time. Nobody bothered us and it's free. Road is passing by but it's quiet at night. There are various walking trails around in the reserve, where you can observe the fauna. Drinking water used to be available but at the time we were there the taps were broken. Dogs are allowed at the parking but not inside the park.

On arrival we asked for staying with a dog in one of the two double rooms. It turned out that the room where you can stay with dogs was booked already. But they offered us a flat in a building nearby for 1500r a night. It was a great deal for us. We could wash all our laundry and had a kitchen and a bathroom for us. The building is quite new, built in January 2018, the flat was clean and equipped with all stuff you need, but it misses a bit light and fresh air.

They said it's a minimum purchase of 50q now for access to showers. I'll stick to my (infrequent) sponge baths and cook my own food for that price...

It is a simple place next to the lake. There are little wooden tables, fireplaces and kind of pit toilets (but they are full). Bring a shovel. Some people before used to leave their garbage here, too sad.
The way to get there is nothing for a big camper. We were the only once. It is free of charge.

Did it in dry weather. It took me 10 hours from Ndendé to Dolisie. Including all border procedures. On the Congo side 50-60 km/h is possible most of the time.

Got my visa today. 3 month single entry visa that starts on the date I requested. Took a few hours. Needed 3 photocopies of passport. 3 photos. Photocopy of yellow fever and a hotel booking. Deal breaker was the flight or ferry ticket. I went and bought a ferry ticket as a foot passenger. Cost me 21 000 Naira at today's rate, worked out at $58. Visa cost 51 000 CFA plus 5000 CFA processing fee. I gave them a mixture of West and Central African CFA. Also needed to write a letter to the consul explaining what I was doing. The dude was nice and it was an easy process.

Perfect spot. Clean, safe and with fire pit, parrillas and electricity. Also bathrooms and hot showers. Loved it, recommend it.

the coordinates takes you to the entrance of the park but the camping is in the end. the gate was closed so we park outside but the ranger came to invite us to go in and explained the gate closes for the safe of the campsite.

came on winter so we where almoust alone. only one tent too.
