The Gambia

We have had an amazing and relaxing experience in Farakunku. We felt we knew Heather and Moses through Alex and Fleur, but all the staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. For non ‘birders’ like us, it was still all extremely enjoyable. We now know a lot more about Gambia and have seen quite a few different places - all good. The beach is fantastic too. A very welcome break at a much needed time in superb surroundings.

I need Farakunku Lodges all over the world please…how about it Heather and Moses?? As a woman birder travelling alone, I couldn’t have felt happier or more secure. Mustapha, my guide every day, was an absolute treasure and so skilled. Thank you so much.

This was our first ever visit to Gambia, and indeed to Africa. Farakunku is an absolutely lovely and peaceful place to stay and everybody about so very friendly. Staff could not be more obliging, the food was great and we particularly enjoyed the gardens. Superb birding opportunities.

Many thanks
