All our Guides have a wealth of knowledge and many years experience taking tourists on the most incredible excursions around Gambia. They are very proud of the birds and wildlife that are both native and migrate to their country. Their goal is to tailor each trip to the interests of every individual holiday maker.

Malick Suso – Specialist Bird Guide
A quote from Chris Packman (BBC Naturalist / TV Celebrity): ‘I respect Malick as one of the best all round ornithologists I’ve ever met anywhere on earth and he has become a firm friend. His skills and knowledge are frankly astonishing.’
Karanta Camara – Specialist Bird Guide
President of Bird watchers’ Association The Gambia (BWA), Karanta is highly experienced and has been conducting bird watching tours in and around The Gambia for over 15 years. A well mannered bird guide full of knowledge and innovation, he is hardworking with leadership qualities earning him the leadership role entrusted by the 75 members of the entire bird watching fraternity in The Gambia. This in turn, helps him to transform bird watching as a respectable and reputable profession to many guides as a niche product under the watch of the Gambia Tourism Authority (GT Board). Karanta is among the selected National organising committee for The Gambia Annual International Bird Festival to be held at Kotu 23rd-25th November 2018. Take a look at his tours.
