Have you ever found yourself at a New Year party wishing you’d rather be somewhere else, sunny and warm with loads of wildlife and culture? We have the answer! This tour was inspired by the beautiful varied habitats we visited during our work for #teampeanut . We’ll visit the best areas for wildlife and culture throughout this sub-saharan avian gold mine! You’ll not only see spectacular African species but also be able to observe Northern European migrants wintering in the area.
The Gambia provides some amazing opportunities for birding. Boasting over 540 species with the best sites in relatively close proximity, meaning you don’t have to travel far to see some amazing things – you’ll even find a whole host of exotic species in your hotel gardens.
We guarantee you’ll find this trip enlightening, inspiring and as one elder tells us – it’ll change you!
The Gambia is right in the middle of the narrow transitional zone between semi dessert and tropical rain forest, consequently, the country’s bird list includes species from both of these areas. In addition to the resident African species Northern European migrants pass through the area and winter here in large numbers. In actual fact many of the species we witnessed passing through the Straits of Gibraltar will be spending winter here and we want to find them with you!
With over 15 years experience of visiting the area and working closely with local conservationists and ecologists on ground breaking conservation projects we have the very best and unrivalled experience and contacts in the area. This will make sure you receive the most relaxing and nature filled experience of West Africa possible.
