Exploring Gambia and its birds!

We got in contact with Alieu by the owner of the Footsteps and had a great time. We spend about 5 days together and travelled also to Janjabureh. Choosing to go by boat, a 5 hours trip. Worthwhile!!! 
As I liked birds. Alieu had decided to bring a driver who was also a very good bird watcher. We had a lot of fun together & in
the end, my husband was looking for birds too.

2 day central and east Gambia tour

A fantastic two-day tour covering the sites that we had discussed with Bushwhacker.

They were extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and managed amazing access to makes to some experiences that would be hard to achieve with a larger group. I would definitely use them again and have some fantastic memories of this trip.
