... But the highlight was a Yellow-crowned Gonoleck, a striking bird with a distinctive call that we chased back and forth between two shrubs for several minutes.
Each time we passed through Tanji village, little children along the way would continuously scream hello at us. The slightly older ones chased after us to shake our hands and with a wide smile on their ...
... 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 ...

... slung on their backs. Teenage girls being the same all over the world revolt by wearing tight jeans & high heels and straighten and colour their hair. Most of the men we notice tend to shave their heads quite closely. Everyone is friendly, and even though many approach with something to sell, they do not pester and accept a polite refusal.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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!
