... they were so thankful and polite, it was quite humbling.In one classroom with the very young pupils, probably about 4 yrs old they were learning their 2xTable. When we entered the classroom the teacher said we could sit and play with the children. As we left one dear little girl held tightly onto my hand until I was at the gate to board the vehicle - in my photo you can see her with the big smile waving the pencil I had given her.We all left the school with a very warm ...
... some middle aged fleabag of a woman is feeding them scraps from her bloated breakfast. I counted 9 dogs surrounding the fat cow and some dogs even come into the sitting lunch area and the pool area where toddlers are playing, I won't bring Joel here unless the dogs are culled fact! I even offered to cull them myself, no problem, middle of the night job, gone by ...

... We actually liked the experience so much that we decided to take part in the ‘planet’ Holiday with a Heart volunteer experience as well! This project worked with a leading environmental charity. This experience was just as great but the work we did was very different. We leant lots about the environment and helped clear woodland and plant trees with the locals. We miss Gambia already and all those we met but are so thankful for the experience and have made some friends for ...

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!
