This has been our first visit to The Gambia and Farakunku. We have found Farakunku to be the ideal setting to see the ‘real’ Gambia and its people who are all so friendly. The staff are all so polite and helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
We found the birdwatching trips to be well organised and our personal guide Ebrima was very knowledgeable and helpful. The variety and number of birds seen was second to none (205+ species)
We happened to be here on Valentine’s Day (which was also Helen’s birthday) …. the evening meal and atmosphere were terrific. A singer and kora player and later a local dance and drum group were organised…all fantastic. By the end of the evening we were all dancing and playing basic instruments!
Thank you for a wonderful holiday experience.
