My 2nd visit to Farakunku and once again everything has been superb, the food delicious, my bird guide Mass excellent, the staff always friendly and polite.

It has been a wonderful holiday made more so by Heather and Moses taking away the stress of organising days out, which has given me the time to relax…superb.

We had a wonderful time here at Farakunku.It was exactly perfect for what we wanted from this type of holiday.Everyone works hard as a team to ensure you have a comfortable and stress free time.

The food deserves a special mention…not just delicious but totally varied throughout our 2 weeks.

We had the week’s birding package spread out over 14 days…just great…we relaxedeither at the beach or in Heather and Moses’s beautiful gardens on our days off.

There are plenty of other activities, other than bird watching, to choose from on days off. Just ask…no problem.

Thanks to all the staff for looking after us, it was much appreciated. Look forward to the next visit.

Farakunku Lodges, Musa & Heather, all of your lovely staff and our bird guide all contributed to a wonderful week. Staying here has shown us another facet of this interesting and beautiful country. The combination of days out birding and the return to this haven of tranquillity has been perfect. We will tell our birding friends what a perfect spot this is and thank you all again. Oh…and the food was absolutely delicious and Babucarr’s driving superb!!

Here we go again…this is our seventh visit to Farakunku. We are living proof that "you are never too old to learn”. I had no idea what ‘sand painting’ was, until this visit. This was experienced thanks to the various activities suggested by Heather and Moses. Our stay at Farakunku was once again most enjoyable - the other guests provided some interesting conversational topics in the evenings.

Staff here have, once again, been friendly and helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble.

Have already been discussing dates for 2018 and it is certain we will return then.
