Come and join The Gambia Experience at The Rutland Birdfair on August 16th - the biggest birding event in the whole of the UK!

Join The Gambia Experience next Friday at the UK’s biggest birding event, the Rutland Birdfair, as we showcase the incredible and diverse species of birds that reside in The Gambia.

The fair is held from August 16th – 18th at Rutland Water, whose large areas of wetland form a nature reserve and a superb habitat for thriving birds including Lapwing, Coot, Grebe and Osprey.

Regularly referred to as ‘the wildlife event of the year’, single day tickets cost £13.50, while passes for the whole three-day event can be purchased for £35, along with day tickets, here.

There are countless events, exhibitors, lectures and activities on show across the entire three days, with numerous wildlife television personalities making an appearance, including Chris Packham, a massive advocate of The Gambia.

You can find us in Marquee 8 across Stands 49/50 with the Gambia Tourism Board, where our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have about holidays to the country, birding or otherwise. 

You will also have the opportunity to gain some information about our fantastic birdwatching tours and itineraries. We have a number of options on offer, including a half or full-day tour with local guide Malick Suso - whom Chris Packham calls the best birding guide in The Gambia!
