Gambia is a small country so the concentration of birds is very high, both in numbers and in the diversity of bird species.

Because of the location of Gambia, just below the desert, a lot of European birds come here to spend the winter.

In this 8-day round trip, we let you get acquainted with The Gambia. We start our journey in the Tambi wetlands and drive 140 km inland to Tendaba. The Tendaba region is without doubt the best known birding destination in The Gambia. The Tendaba Lodge's proximity to several prime birding areas such as the Kiang West National Park and the Baobolong wetland reserve makes it the perfect base for exploring the rich bird life.

Please let us know if you are interested in using our photo lodges (Tambia Wetlands and Tendaba) (free in our trips).

Priority during our trips are the spotting and/or photographing of birds, but Gambia is of course more than just birds.
During our round tours we also pay attention to mammals, reptiles, insects and the beautiful nature that Gambia has to offer.
The Gambian culture, the delicious food, and a little bit of relaxing may of course not be missed :-)
