Giant Kingfisher

Remarkably accessible and exotic, Gambia is a top destination for birds in the winter.

It is hardly surprising that Gambia is a popular winter destination for birdwatchers and general holiday-makers alike. Situated strategically on Africa's west coast, at this time of year this tiny country sees a sumptuous array of resident species joined by vast numbers of migrants from the north, (perhaps paralleling our own movements!). 

This week-long day holiday takes a leisurely look at some of the finest spots within this exotic country and within a short distance of our base are freshwater lagoons, estuaries, mangroves, savanna and ancient gallery forest. 

Not forgetting of course the lush garden of our top class hotel, in itself a wildlife magnet with dazzling sunbirds, striking gonoleks and prehistoric (but harmless) water monitors all around. 

Next date to be announced
