Working together

The Gambia Experience exclusively features the award-winning Mandina Lodges at Makasutu within its Unique Collection. Extremely eco-conscious, Makasutu’s current commitment to Sustainable Tourism takes the form of its Ballabu Conservation Project.

The Ballabu Conservation Project

The aim of the Ballabu Conservation Project is to create an 85sq kilometre conservation area - incorporating 14 Gambian villages - that will eventually become self-sustaining, thus alleviating poverty for the local people.

The Eden Project & Gardens For Life

The Eden Project will assist with the Ballabu Conservation Project through its Gardens For Life charity.

The Gambia is the latest country to join Gardens for Life, the Eden initiative, which links 20,000 pupils in schools across the UK, Africa, India and the USA, encouraging them to create gardens, grow food and share stories with others across the world.

UK Gardens for Life school participants, led by expert Gardens for Life coordinators, will be twinned with Gambian schools, offering them invaluable guidance on conservation, reforestation and social enterprise.

Monies donated to Gardens for Life fund a whole host of resources, such as good quality seeds, tools, and vital equipment, such as hoses to connect school gardens to water pumps.
