Gambia

Birding

Gambia - is one of Africa's smallest nations and  is totally surrounded by Senegal, its neighbour to the north, west, and south. It  also has been one of Africa's most stable countries since gaining independence from the UK in 1965. This is, however a poor country, with an over-reliance on one crop - peanuts - and on the remittance of monies from abroad by Gambians working elsewhere.
The country lies along the Gambia River. In fact it is never more than 48kms in width and along this narrow strip of land only about one sixth is cultivatable. Increasingly the saving grace, economically, is the coastline. Here the lengthy beaches have given rise to an extensive tourism industry for Europeans wanting to escape the winter cold. Gambia has, however, more to offer the visitor than just beaches. The interior is relatively little visited and the route inland to Nkolokoba Game Reserve is an interesting journey. It is indeed the interior, rather than the beaches, that attracts our BIRDING groups.


Gambia represents an easily accessible slice of African life and will well repay a visitor looking for more than just beaches and sunshine.
