Tour the nature and wildlife of Gambia and Senegal

We will visit Gambia River, discovering its natural reserve and surrounding islands to photograph baboons, hippopotamuses, crocodiles, antelopes, etc. and an infinity of birds.

In the wildlife reserve of Fathala we will locate large mammals and sail through the mangroves of the delta of the Sine and Saloum rivers by boat.

We will also visit several tribes, observe their customs and taste the delicious dishes of their gastronomy.

Nature is generous, creative, and knowing. That’s why it’s the perfect place to disconnect, breathe fresh air, get rid of everyday anxiety, and feel at peace with yourself. Whether you like to mountain climb, bike, or hike, nature will welcome you with open arms so that you can enjoy all its benefits:
• Outdoor activity is an immediate and highly effective remedy for stress because the endorphins that your body releases when you are active are responsible for plunging you into a state of satisfaction, well-being, and absolute serenity.
• Whether you want to stay fit, gain stamina, or lose weight, outdoor activities can be your best ally. Dive into the smells and textures of the mountain and woods and let your body adapt and overcome the challenges of nature.
• Did you know that contact with nature increases a person’s sense of freedom? Put your sneakers on and get ready to take care of both your body and your mind.

Departure from the airport of your city of origin to the airport of Banjul, Yundum (BJL).Once at the destination, the guide will take you to the neighborhood of Fajara.

Senegal is not a fashionable country. It does not have an excess of tourism, and that tourism approaches zero in low season. When you decide to go to Africa it isn’t the first country to come to mind, except for the endemic problem of poverty and migrants.
Gambia is the smallest country in mainland Africa. It stretches 400 kilometers into the heart of Senegal. Although many may think that its greatest charm is its beaches, “the smiling coast” has a good number of attractions beyond this little claim to fame.
Fishing villages, extensive nature reserves, World Heritage, and the eternal smile of its people who show the world how little it takes to overcome any adversity.
