A lot of birdwatching tours are possible in the Gambia. The possibilities are almost limitless. Very well known are the following area's:

Very well known, with a lot of different spcies. Also well known for it's monkeys. The habitat is mainly forest, low bushes and some creeks.
Tanji Bird Reserve
This is a coastal reserve of 612 hectares. Some 280 bird species can be seen here over the year.
Located near some of the hotels, so very easily accessible. The birdwatching trip here also takes you over the golfcourse, offering a nr. of different habitats in a small area, guaranteeing that you will see many different species in a short while.
Again a small area of open woodland, with also a pond that will surely attract some species.
Near Lamin Lodge you can enter the mangroves in a boat. This will offer you a very relaxed way to discover this area with all it's species. Simply take your bird pictures from the boat....
