The Gambia in Style - A Watercolour Special with Darren Woodhead

Tour Code: GMB03

An 8-day painting holiday focusing on painting West African birds and other wildlife

8 days from £2495(flights not included) Land Only Price: £0 SRS: £850

This exciting new holiday, based at the fabulous Mandina Lodge in The Gambia, will give participants the opportunity to develop their painting and drawing skills in a beautifully tranquil setting under Darren’s watchful eye and guidance. Located in the heart of the 1,000-acre Makasutu Cultural Reserve, which borders a secluded mangrove-lined tributary of the River Gambia, we will have the opportunity to paint a wonderful selection of birds, from herons, egrets and ibises to colourful kingfishers, bee-eaters and turacos, as well as an array of raptors. Owing to the fabulous accommodation and setting for this holiday, and allowing for the possibility of a very flexible programme and the chance to delve in and out of activities, it is particularly well suited to couples with mixed interests.


Breakfast and dinner are included, lunches are not. Allow £10-15 per lunch.


A very comfortable eco-lodge, all rooms with private facilities.
