... a combo of prayers, spells and potions many of which result in patients with minor illnesses arriving at the hospital, who have been poisoned. (3) the witch doctor didn't work so now it's off to the local government health centre, these can range from a tiny building with a nurse and some medication to larger units staffed by expat nursing volunteers and some medically trained staff (almost doctors but not quite) (4) if necessary the patient is finally transferred by 4x4 ambulance ...

... travellers, locals and Gambians who think they’re Rastafarians. We spent a couple of blissful days there, exploring by foot and Jakarta, basking in the beauty of the Casamance region. The campement where we stayed was owned by a joker named ‘Cherif’ who serenaded us with ‘Who shot the Sheriff?’ whenever we saw him. Incidentally, he spoke French, Wolof, German and broken English which made my mornings all the more interesting; ...

... 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 ...

... effective and profitable like it has been sold then the majority of these communities would be embarking on it as an alternative livelihood to supplement income – unless it is a popular activity conducted by hosts rather than refugees? Something to investigate further I think.....

We then went on to Mandinaba where we observed a model horticultural farmer. Mandinaba has key transport links to Brikama, Western Region and the Senegalese border so it is fair to ...

    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!
