Jarek Pokrzywnicki (Poland):
Visited March, 2014. Easily access from Po via local public transport (although apart from market days you will have to wait - other possibility is a motorbike).

Chief's compound is located a bit from village center, there is an entrance fee (2000 CFA + obligatory guide - negotiate hadr as that may be overpriced - I paid another 2000 CFA for around 1 hour walk. It is not possible to make pictures even from outside without buing a ticket.

The site itself is not very well maintained nor preserved and comparing to other similar areas (Koutammakou, Tongo-Tenguzuk in Ghana) is very small, just a single compound covering approximately 30 houses including those distroyed.

There is a possibility of finding accommodation in Tiebele, around one km from the site (nice local hotel there are built in the style of local mud houses.
