Mini Experience the Swedish way
We are doing another trip with two people from Sweden. It will be a 4 days Mini Experience to inland locations starting with Tendaba.
After some birding on the way we are now on our way to tendaba camp.
Early morning Tendaba boat trip to the mangroves. 👍🏻
They are now at Georgetown woods looking for pearl spotted owlet. Foday whistles the sound of the owlet again and again. At some point an owlet respons and they start looking for it.
FOUND IT! 💪🏻💪🏻🙏🏼😎
Birding is not only having sharp eyes but also very good ears, knowing the habitats and the sounds of the birds.
Nice breakfast at Georgetown lodge.
The bird of the day was the white headed vulture around wassau village. More updates will come after the end of the tour.
fantastic 5 days birding with two Swedish men which ended today and I drop them back to airport now. It's been fantastic with lots of good birds. We got a total of 240 different birds.
Till next time for a longer Birding trip with Gambia Birding Experience and even more bird species. 👍🏻
We started our SeneGambia tour with Frank and Ans. Our main guide Foday is guiding them personally around The Gambia and Senegal.
At the moment they are at Wassadou in Senegal. One of the best places to do spectaculair boat trips on the small pieces of The Gambia river. It’s the place of many nice species like Egyptian Plover, Finfoot amd Pels Fishing Owl. Keep posted for more pictures of this wonderful SeneGambia a Experience.
Boat trip in wassadou creek is a fantastic boat trip. The birds of the day are shining blue kingfisher, carmine bee eater, Egyptian Plover. I took a video with my phone which is very to the Egyptian plovers. We will be leaving wassadou and go back to the gambia tomorrow. Enjoy what we captured during our senegambia experience. After the tour we will upload more photos. To reach the highest customers satisfaction is our main goal.

Arrived at Kaolack after a hole day drive from georgetown through the north bank of the Gambia. We reached kaolack at 4pm drop our bags at hotel Le Relais and later drive to the swallowtail kites colony which was a little bit of a struggle but it’s nice to see them at the roasting place. After that we came back to the hotel. This is just a video been took by my mobile not perfect but just to give a brief roasting of the swallowtail kites.
Dinner time at hotel Le Relais. We will drive back to the Gambia tomorrow after breakfast. We will have our final night at helping Lodge in northern. Gambia birding experience is always there for it customers satisfaction
