Fathala wildlife reserve safari
Fathala safari, once again an early start at around 6 to 6:30 am for a drive to the Banjul ferry terminal to catch the ferry to Barra on the north bank of The Gambia. The ferry crossing will be definitely your first experience on the tour but will be indeed a memorable one too.
In Barra, we will board our waiting open-top Land Rover for a drive to The Gambia-Senegal border. After the usual passport checks and stamping, the tour will proceed to our main destination, which is The Fathala Safari Park. This is where we will be spotting some of the big species of animals that have become distinct in our region, like the Rhinos, Giraffes, Buffalos, Elands, and Zebras just to mention a few. Be aware that these animals are not kept in cages but you will have enough time with us to go around in the park to spot them. Lunch will be served in Barra and the next ferry will bring us back to Banjul at around 5 to 6 pm.

Having used Bushwackers before, we selected a visit to the Wildlife Reserve at Fathala, Senegal. We were collected on time from our hotel and looked after very professionally by Lamin throughout. His depth of knowledge regarding everything we encountered was truly amazing.

We had a great day together with a guide name Malcolm. The trip itself was nicely organized, with good cars and convenient times. We even had a big cool box with soft drinks. Malcolm is a professional, very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Definitely worth recommending!
