Bijoli island trip?

Hi, I'd love to see Ospreys & see the islands are a great spot but only visitable through the Gambian wildlife department. I have tried emailing them but the web email bounced. Has anyone been to the Islands / know how a trip can be arranged?

to see plenty of Ospreys you do not need to go to the Island. The River Allahain at Kartung has an abundance of Ospreys, Fish Eagles, African eagles, pelicans etc all of which can be seen diving and fishing by simply hiring a local boat on the river.

If you go to Kartung at the riverside ask for Alex he has a small boat with outboard. Give him no more than 1000 dalasi for the trip up the river. Kartung is about 45 mins from the tourist areas by taxi you should pay about 2000 for a return trip.
