Brief

Day 1: Fly to Banjul. Coastal hotel Days 2 & 3: Farafenni, North Bank Days 4 – 6: Georgetown Days 7 & 8: Tendaba Camp, South Bank Days 9 – 13: Coastal hotel Day 14: Return flight

Tour Detail

Day One: You will be collected from the airport and taken to your hotel, about a 30-minute drive away. After settling in, the rest of the day will be spent becoming familiar with some of the bird life, visiting Kotu Creek and other areas close to your hotel.

Day Two: Picking you up at 7am, we will travel to Farafenni, where we will be staying for the next two nights. On the way we will make a number of stops at sites like Sotokoi, Kampant, Brumang Bridge, Tonyataba and the Soma wetlands. These short stops can be profitable bird-wise and we can expect to see several different raptors and waders, and many other small birds. We will then take the ferry from Yelli Tenda to Bamba Tenda on the North Bank, and head onwards to Farafenni.

Day Three: With an early start, we head west to an area of wetlands where we should be rewarded with a variety of birds including waders, storks, pelicans, cormorants, terns and gulls. Back in Farafenni for lunch, we will take a short break before heading east to a site called Njen Sanjali. This area is similar to that in the dry northern regions of Senegal, as farms surrounding the village have cleared extensive fields. Here, as raptors soar overhead, we will search for larks, bustards, coursers and Abyssinian Ground Hornbill.

Day Four: Another early start for the journey to Janjanbureh, with various stops en route at sites like the Kaur wetlands, Panchan and Nyagan Bantan. Before making the river crossing at Kuntaur we will travel through the River Gambia National Park. Here we will see a variety of birds, as well as other exciting animals like Hippos, Guinea Baboons, Callithrix Monkeys, Western Red Colobus and maybe even Chimpanzees on one of the islands in the river. We will stay at Baobolong Camp on Janjanbureh island for three nights.

Day Five: Crossing over the bridge to the South Bank, we will make our way to Basse. On the way we will stop at a few sites, including the well known Bansang Quarry to marvel at its colony of Red-throated Bee-eaters. After lunch at Amie’s Restaurant in Basse, we will return to Janjanbureh, with more stops en route.

Day Six: After breakfast we will take a boat trip to Kunkling Forest in the hope of finding, amongst other things, Adamawa Turtle Dove. Later in the day we shall return to Janjanbureh and take a walk around the island to see what other birds we can find.

Day Seven: Today we head to Tendaba for two nights. Crossing the bridge at Sankull Kunda, we head west on the South Bank, stopping at the famous Brikama Ba and the Soma wetlands.

Day Eight: In the morning we will take a pirogue trip across the River Gambia, into the Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve. Travelling along Tunku and Kissi Bolongs we will see many species including Mouse-brown Sunbird, White-backed Night-heron, African Finfoot, African Blue Flycatcher and Goliath Heron. We will also land on the North Bank for a short walk, before rejoining the pirogue and heading back to camp for lunch. In the afternoon we will take a trip to Bateling bush track in the hope of species such as Bronze-winged Courser, and if we stay late we may see nightjars and owls.

Day Nine: After the relaxing atmosphere of Tendaba Camp and the joys of rural Gambia, no doubt it will be with reluctance that we make our way back to the coast. Of course, there will be birding stops on the way.

Day Ten: Having had an early breakfast we will visit the famous Abuko Nature Reserve for the morning. After lunch at Lamin Lodge we will explore the Lamin rice fields for the rest of the day.

Day Eleven: Today we shall head inland to Bunto Forest for the morning, having a picnic lunch in the field. The afternoon will be spent in and around Farasuto forest.

Day Twelve: In the morning we will take a trip into Tujering woods and, after a lunchtime break, we will spend the afternoon enjoying the sights and the birds around the coastal town of Gunjur.

Day Thirteen: You will be picked up for an early morning visit to the area around Sifoe woods before having a picnic lunch in the rice fields. The rest of the day will be spent exploring the rice fields and wetlands.

Day Fourteen: Your remaining time will be spent relaxing or exploring the area around your hotel before being transported to the airport.
