Generations ago the ancestor crocodiles saved the village from a famine and since then the people of Bazoule call them the sacred crocodiles and treat them with respect.

Tourists from all over travel to witness this unique tradition in Bazoule. They get a chance to ride on the crocodiles' back and feed them with chicken, specifically from Bazoule. It's quite a phenomenon.
