Starting around 7.30am with a drive to the international award winning Makasutu Cultural Forest, a palm forest situated on a beautiful meandering tributary of the River Gambia (Mandina Bolong) encompassing many different eco-systems including mangroves, savannah and dense forest.

A chance to see vultures, gathered together for their morning breakfast, as well as some other European and African birds such as Lilly Trotters, West African River Eagle, Black Heron and the Goliath Heron. The morning is spent exploring the mangroves in dug out canoes followed by a nature walk through the forest hoping to catch a glimpse of a few monkeys, mongoose, monitor lizards and possibly even baboons.

After an African lunch members of the Jola tribe will come to demonstrate their dancing and you will have the chance to join in!

Leaving Makasutu en route back to the hotels, we make a final stop at KIM KOMBO, a plantation and wine distillery producing quality Gambian liquers where you can enjoy a short tour of the plantation and a sample of the homemade liqueurs.
