The Hooded Vulture is a common sight in The Gambia, which is unique, as they are considered critically endangered globally, however, the population here is happy. Each day in the hotel’s garden, staff will feed the vultures, an amazing sight to witness as they swoop down to enjoy the offering. Once feeding time is over, the vultures often stay to soak up some sun and relax after a good feed, so you can continue to observe these fascinating creatures up close.
