We found Bushwhackers tours (www.bushwhackertours.com), a small local run company, via the Timbooktoo (in Fajara) bookshop and ASSET and it was an excellent experience all round. Two great trips; friendly and well-informed guides who were happy to fit our extra interests in with the trips we booked.
The two-day trip to the chimpanzee rehabilitation centre was great for wildlife. After the ferry trip and the car journey through the centre of the country (getting warmer and drier by the minute) we headed off on a boat trip in the River Gambia National Park, spotting: hippos, chimps, endless species of birds and a resting croc; followed by dinner and a night in tent-houses, waking up to the birds and monkeys….all at a reasonable price too. Only wish we had stayed longer!
If we do make it back in the wet season we’ll certainly be back to use your company.
