Koure Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see


Although it’s not found on many maps Koure is important as the center of an area roamed by a herd of giraffes—the last remaining free-range herd in West Africa. The area is not controlled in any way but there are trained guides in Koure who know the trails the movement patterns of the giraffes and the local ecology (beware of false guides on the road to Koure!). They command a flat fee and willingly accept tips but do not have their own vehicles. The best way to see the giraffes is by four-wheel-drive vehicle and the dry season (November-February) is the best time to see them. Koure is located just south of the paved road heading east out of Niamey toward Dosso.
