South Gambia eco-adventures – full day
We start our tour with a visit to ‘My Farm‘. An initiative set up to offer free education courses to local people. It offers courses in soap making, permaculture training/gardening & a whole lot more. Why not get your hands dirty and get involved in some vegetable growing and harvesting?
From here we will travel south to another educational centre which teaches us the importance of reptiles and why the local community should preserve them and not kill them out of fear. If you are not afraid, there is an opportunity to hold some of the less dangerous species.
At this halfway point in our day, we visit Footsteps, one of Gambia’s premier eco-lodges. While waiting for our delicious buffet there, we have a short tour from the founder, David, who shows us what sustainable technologies are being employed there.
After lunch and feeling refreshed, we have two more places of interest for you to experience.
First, this afternoon will be a trip to the Jalisut beekeeping centre where we will not only learn the importance of our honey-making friends but also have an opportunity to purchase some handmade candles as momentous.
Lastly, we will be stopping at one of Gambia’s most beautiful beaches called ‘Paradise Beach’. Here we will spend an hour or so swimming, relaxing and generally unwinding before heading back to your hotels.

Having read the great reviews here, on arrival in Gambia we spurned the Thomas Cook tours and walked into the office of Bushwackers on the Senegambia Strip. Instantly made welcome and arranged a Roots tour with our guide Zack. Prompt pick up from the hotel, (not Gambia Maybe Time…) and soon we were on our way up the river
