Expect to see the rare Egyptian Plover, White-Crested Tiger Bittern and Martial Eagle

The staff here at Morgan Kunda Lodge are proud to welcome holiday makers to our exclusive accommodation set in Jarjari Village, deep in the heart of the Bao Bolong Wetland Reserve, North of the river. Our newly-built lodges are staffed by local people serving both Gambian and European cuisine.

Until now it was not possible to spend long periods of time in this unique nature reserve as it was only accessible via long excursions from the South. From our exclusive accommodation, you will have unrivalled access to untapped areas along the Bao Bolong and secret locations only the Guides know about.

Morgan Kunda Lodge is more than a hotel, it is an experience and provides a level of peace and tranquility not found in other hotels, lodges and camps.

When you leave the north bank road at Illiassa and travel up the dirt track through the village of India towards Jarjari, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of the normal tourist areas to a place where Morgan Kunda Lodge and the Morgan Clark School have become an integral part of the village.

A place where you can relax and enjoy nature and village life at first hand.

You can spend days bird watching on foot from the lodge (on your own or with a guide), visit the school or wonder through the village safely on your own or with a villager who would be happy to show you his home and village. The highlight of one of our guests was visiting (by foot) the ladies vegetable garden.

Fabulous Place!

I enjoyed a two night stay at Morgan Kunda Camp, it’s a little gem of a camp with high standards of cleanliness and comfort, the food was great too. I was with friends on a birdwatching trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Seeing birds like Pygmy Long-tailed Sunbird while relaxing having a beer in the camp and nearby some great birds such as Savile’s Bustard, Black-bellied Bustard, Ground Hornbill, Black-crowned Cranes, all in all a fantastic place to stay for birding in the Gambia!

We walked down towards the wetland area to the west, which led through the women’s vegetable garden and was perhaps one of the most stunning places we saw in our whole time in Gambia.
