birds of The GambiaThe Gambia is a bird watcher's paradise. There are number of reserves and over 500 species of birds to discover and even catch a glimpse of rare species such as White Backed Night Heron, Giant Kingfisher and the African Fin Foot. 

Make sure your camera is fully charged, your memory cards are at the ready and your zoom lenses at hand as you explore places such as The Tanji Bird Reserve, Bijilo National Reserve and Abuko Nature Reserve; all of which are prime locations for those interested in bird watching.

For those wanting to make a day of it, there are tours that will start early in the morning and will take you to Makasutu Cultural Forest by canoe and then by foot.

Ocean Villa Heights can arrange for all your birdwatching excursions, so all you need do is bring your equipment and we'll do the rest
