Latest guide recommendations

Hi all

We are hoping to do a week birding in Gambia this winter. Does anyone have any recent recommendations for guides (with transport) please?

Is there anyone we should avoid? (You can message me if you would rather not put that in an open forum).

A lot of the Gambian guides websites don't seem to have been updated for years!

A difficult subject, there are a few good ones, a few half-decent ones many duffers and a few out-right crooks.

I can recommend guides who work with us at Kartong Bird Observatory:

Ranked alphabetically:

Musa Jatta

Tijan Kanti: [email protected] (this is the correct email spelling)

Kebba Sosseh

Whoever you get, stipulate that payment will only be made at the time of the visit and it will only be made if the guide you booked leads you. Often guides who are busy will double and triple book and pass the least lucrative groups onto their side-kicks/relatives/apprentices. Proceed with caution.
