All the Best to all


Is there any history of falconry en Senegal that you know of? All the falconry in Africa that I am aware of are from the areas influencedy by the Arabian culture North of the Sahara or from the areas colonized by the British - chiefly South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Senegal is a very interesting place....look forward to hearing about your journey if you take it up.

Oh, and welcome!
