River Excursions

Post thumbnail

Gambia River Excursions has a vast range of half day excursions in the Greater Banjul area. My excursions are departing from Denton Bridge in Banjul and ending in Lamin Lodge. Minimum of 2 persons.

Independent travellers might prefer to take Lamin Lodge as both their point of departure and of arrival. Alternatively they may decide to join one of the scheduled trips leaving from Denton Bridge.

Birds and Breakfast excursion

One of my most popular trips is the Birds and Breakfast excursion, which is scheduled on mondays, wednesdays and thursdays. After a quick coffee in Lamin Lodge, you will enter a dugout canoe who will take you through the vast labyrinth of creeks that surround the village of Lamin, where more then 70 different species of water birds have been recorded. Two hours later you will return to Lamin Lodge where you can enjoy a breakfast buffet. After breakfast you will continue your search for morning birds in the gardens of the neighbouring village of Abuko.

Sunset Cruise

Another favourite is the Sunset Cruise, leaving from Denton Bridge every Monday, wednesday, and sunday at 4.30 p.m. After a welcome drink on board you will cruise for 1. hours through the mangroves of the River Gambia. A small band playing traditional kora music makes the magic of an African sunset complete. Upon arrival in Lamin Lodge you'll be standed a tasty buffet of both African and European specialities. The evening will be completed by the performance of Mandinka dancers and drummers who will invite you to share their cultural heritage with them. Who dares to dance ...
