Our dawn trip begins around 6am with a drive to the iconic Lamin Lodge. On arrival enjoy an awakening cup of tea or coffee, before climbing aboard a traditional pirogue (local dug our paddle canoe). As the sun rises be thrilled with the dawn chorus as you look out for a variety birds. Cruise back to Lamin Lodge’s restaurant for a satisfying breakfast, relax and soak up even more wonders of up to 200 species of birdlife all around. You'll then stroll along the edge of the rice fields or forest towards Abuko to further sample the delights of The Gambian Aviary and general wildlife, such as monkeys.
Transport arrives back at the hotel in plenty of time for lunch.
Binoculars and copies of "Birds of The Gambia and Senegal" by Barlow, Wacher & Disley are available on loan free of charge; your guide will assist with this.
