Save £100 per person on our ‘The Gambia in Style!’ holiday

Red Bishop, The Gambia

Red Bishop, The Gambia

We are delighted to be able to offer the special price of £1,895 (saving £100 per person) on our popular 8-day birdwatching holiday to the Gambia, departing Friday 9th December 2016.
 
This is a leisurely single-centre tour based at the luxurious and picturesque riverside Mandina Lodge in south-west Gambia’s 1,000-acre Makasutu Forest. The lodge and Makasutu Forest are both listed in the book ‘1001 Escapes Before You Die’. The area is a birdwatchers' haven, and exotics are found here in abundance as well as more familiar wintering European migrants. Guided morning and afternoon excursions, often by boat, into the surrounding area will go in search of herons, egrets, ibises, jacanas, kingfishers, orioles, bee-eaters, sunbirds, raptors, rollers and glossy starlings.

Of all the tropical destinations for European birdwatchers, The Gambia has arguably the most allure for drawing birders of all skill levels back year after year, from complete beginners to the highly experienced. Many of its 570+ species are extremely easy to see and many wonderful birds can be seen without even leaving your resort.
 
Other wildlife of interest includes Nile Monitor Lizards and a variety of primates, and back at the resort you may choose to unwind each day with a swim in the pool, or simply enjoy birdwatching from the beautiful grounds!
