Our first visit to The Gambia has been made very special by Heather and Moses and their very friendly and helpful staff, with whom we shared many a joke.

The ‘Farakunku experience’ cannot be understated - 1st class service in every aspect: superb and innovative cuisine, very comfortable accommodation all set in beautiful bird-rich gardens.

In addition, our well planned birding excursions were superbly led by Mass (Massaneh Sanyang) a top birding guide. Never have we seen such skill in identification of birds and bird song. Without his expertise, we would not have seen so many birds. He is highly recommended.

We also enjoyed great company from the other guests during our 17 night stay: Bob and Betty, James, Pete and Celia.

What a stunning eco-lodge! The trees and flowers around the 4 lodges are beautiful and full of wonderful Gambian birds. On our terrace, in front of Palm lodge, the colourful Lavender Waxbills kept us company, not to mention the Firefinches, Senegal Coucal and lizards.

Heather and Moses have clearly spent lots of time and energy creating this wonderful sanctuary. Thank you to them both for being such wonderful hosts and thanks to the staff too for looking after us.

We’ve had a super first introduction to The Gambia, and meeting Sue and Steve from the Brecon area of Wales and talking birds over dinner has been great fun.

And I cannot believe I’ve not yet mentioned the amazing food … AWESOME! Really enjoyed it all.

We feel very lucky to be able to enjoy the fruits of Heather and Moses’s hard and inspired work. Excellent accommodation, well served by an attentive staff. Birding par excellence with Ebrima and Abdulai. 5 stars all round.

We would like to thank Heather and Moses and their entire staff for their great hospitality during our stay. To enjoy the great country of The Gambia with such a comfortable base is a fantastic experience. Never, ever have we gone to a holiday location for a 2nd time but this could maybe become the first time we do that.

How lucky are we to have found Farakunku Lodge and the Gambia.

Heather, Moses and all the staff made our stay special- even for a non-bird watcher wife. Pete did very well with 139 specimens in a week. Great accommodation, food and hospitality!! Thank you all.
