Sanyang is perfectly located on the coast between Tanji and Kartong, with easy access to the beach, the mangrove areas and the Senegal border at the Alehein River. I can meet you at your hotel or lodge or at Rainbow Lodge on 'Paradise Beach' near to Sanyang village.

I can arrange half day, full day or longer trips to the local area or Abuko Nature reserve, Makasutu, Casamance, Janjanbureh (Georgetown), Northern Gambia and many other areas.

Trips include transport, food and refreshments of your choice and well informed guided observation of birdlife. Please let me know if there are any species of special interest and I will customise your trip to maximise our chances of finding these birds in particular.

Contact me by email, SMS or phone to arrange a trip, either before you arrive in Gambia or while you are here.
