Brief

Bird life Africa organise professional bird watching tours both in the Gambia and Senegal, specially tailored for small groups and or individuals. With our experienced guides you will adventure off the beaten track to discover a rich variety of birds, wildlife and vibrant culture in these two beautiful and friendly west African countries. The Senegambia regoin boasts an avifauna of some 660 species in total, with the Gambia recording over 540 species alone, a third of which are migrants from the palearctic. A holiday here promises some thing for every one with shorter, relaxed trips in the coastal region of the Gambia to more exciting itineraries concentrating on the more rural and bird rich areas up- river. We have there core programs to choose from, although they can easily be tailored to suit your needs. The two week trips require prior booking but shorter tours can be arrange once in the Gambia.

Tour Detail

Day One: An early start to get to Brufut Beach and catch a boat to Bijilo Island, providing us with a number of terns, gulls, pelicans, waders and other sea birds. After lunch at Tanji Ecolodge, we will spend the afternoon birding around the Tanji Bird Reserve.

Day Two: Today we head south along the coast to Kartong, where we will spend the morning birding amongst old sand mining quarries. With their numerous fresh water pools, these can often be very productive. After lunch at Stala Adventures’ restaurant we will take an afternoon boat trip to Pelican Island.

Day Three: You will be picked up at 7.30 to head off to the famous Abuko Nature Reserve, which we shall explore until lunchtime at Lamin Lodge. From there we will move on to Bund Road in Banjul, which is an excellent site for terns, gulls, pelicans, a wide variety of waders and other species.

Day Four: Today we leave the coast and head inland to Tendaba Camp for two nights. En route we will stop at sites such as Mandina-ba, Sotokoi, Bamba Kuno forest and along the road between Kwinella and Tabanane. We will arrive at Tendaba in the evening, in time for a delicious buffet dinner.

Day Five: After a 7.00 breakfast we shall take a pirogue trip across the River Gambia and into the Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve, exploring the Tunku and Kissi Bolongs. Here we can hope to see birds such as Pel’s Fishing Owl, African Finfoot, African Blue Flycatcher, Malachite Kingfisher, White-backed Night-heron, Goliath Heron and many more. After this we will walk around the Tendaba rice fields and then, after lunch, head into Kiang West National Park.

Day Six: After spending a couple of hours birding around the Santokunku woods, we shall leave Tendaba and travel back to the coast, stopping at various sites en route.
