This is also a very good area for raptors including African White-Backed Vulture, Hooded Vulture, Osprey, Fish Eagle.  Cape Point is excellent for Terns and Waders. Kotu Stream – Pied Kingfisher, Palmnut Vulture and Fajara Golf Course – Black Headed plover, Little Bee Eater. Kartong Bird Observatory –  Goliath Heron, Blue – Cheeked Bee Eaters, Africa Spoonbills. Marakissa Forest lies close the border with neighbouring Senegal. Its varied habitats  are another great place for birds, with African Green Pigeon, Greater Honeyguide, Grey-headed Bush Shrike, Klaas’s Cuckoo and Northern Puffback among species  regularly seen here. 

Accommodation 6 nights at the coast, staying at the Senegambia Hotel, one of the Gambia’s most popular tourist hotels. Set in 20 acres of tropical gardens, the beach and swimming pool make it an excellent place to relax during the heat of the day for those that want. All rooms are air-conditioned and en suite.
