Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I were safari guides in the Manovo St Floris Park from 1987 to 1988. The place was a natural paradise with a huge variety of animals and birds, including elephants, cape buffalo, lions, leopards, hippos, derby eland, giraffe, thousands of different antelope, warthogs, crocodiles, etc....The park had one of the largest concentrations of hippos in the world, with more than 500 staying in a river bed in the north of the park. We would fish for Nile perch aka "le Capitain" and catch some weighing more than 60 kilos. Mr. and Mrs. Jean Laboureur managed the reserve with their son, Mathieu. Christian, Annemarie and I were guides. If you were lucky enough to have visited the park in those days, you can appreciate how much we are losing to the constant war and famine in the CAR over the past decade. We are thankful for the memories, but saddened that it cannot be shared with our children one day. Hopefully, it can recover and be preserved..
