I last visited The Gambia 28 years ago. It was great for birds then but a trip in early 2019 revealed it was far better than I remembered; it exceeded all my expectations. The Gambia is one of the most bird-rich places I have visited in recent years and I personally found it amongst the best in the world for both Birding and Bird Photography. It offers a wonderful and relaxing introduction to Africa.

We really enjoyed our stay and were impressed by the way in which Karanta and our two drivers looked after us. Seeing village life at close quarters was an eye-opener and I was pleased to be able to visit the school.

We were welcomed very warmly by Phil and the staff. The accommodations, food, staff and the overall stay was excellent. Only wished we could have spent more time here. I would recommend that anyone planning a trip to The Gambia whether they are bird watchers or not should stay at Morgan Kunda Lodge.

Especially wonderful kitchen staff! So friendly and nice. It was a pleasure to visit the lodge again and to see how it has come along. Everyone enjoyed the visit.

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful visit to your lodge.  I hope the children at the school enjoyed the few school supplies I brought.  Wish it could have been more but I will contribute a little something to your foundation. Attached are a few photos. They are not great photos but hopefully some of the others, with the huge lens, will have better one to share.

Again a BIG THANK YOU to you and your staff for a very warm welcome…….Oh, and the food was delicious!

I had a nice time at Morgan Kunda Lodge, thank you! I especially enjoyed the little tower/elevated platform. Lamin was very helpful, too. It was nice to have electricity at night and a blanket in case it got cold (I have been cold in other lodges were they did not provide such a commodity). I was surprised to not find mosquito nets over the beds, although it wasn’t much of a problem.

I really enjoyed my time in the Gambia, especially our time in Jarjari. I’ve attached a couple photos for you. I have an opportunity to return to the Gambia in May but have not yet decided for how long I will be there.
