Brilliant service from beginning, though a bit of a rocky finish from management point of view. Like they wanted rid of us now the trip was over! Not so from the staff - our cleaner, our waiters, our tour guide, our security staff, all stuck around to give us a great send off!
During our stay, the food was great, our waiters were fabulous, the room was lovely - and the birdsong from morning until late evening was amazing - and then the exquisite bats took over to patrol with the security guys.
A fabulous place to stay. Wouldn't have stayed anywhere else. The trips we took with 'Bird Man' Aziz were simply splendid - and our river cruise and a walk to the monkey park with Hattib were excellent.
We'll be back!

Probably the largest in the Gambia, Serekunda is like most African markets with stalls and shops selling everything under the sun. We bought sorrel, baobab and hot chilly sauces there. If you don't mind mingling with people and haggling, you will make substantial savings shopping at this market as opposed to the 'posh' supermarkets and boutiques in Senegambia.

... We can't wait to return and next time we will go for longer so that we can visit Georgetown and maybe Senegal too. The people of The Gambia really were as friendly as we had been told and this will stay with us for a long time.
We have to thank JJ so much and would recommend him to anybody, whether you're a casual birder or wanting to tick some specific birds off a list. He really did make our ...
