- It was an unusual and very interesting tour, geared mainly to birdwatching, which was outstanding. We spent a lot of time on many different types of boat and travelling on small pirogues amongst the mangroves was fascinating. Our tour leader Baba was one of the very best we have had. We didn't need very much money in The Gambia, as we only paid for drinks and a donation to a local school. On arrival at The Gambian border we were unexpectedly faced with a requirement to get a visa (c. £60). We still don't know if this is official Gambian policy, as the websites say UK citizens don't need a visa. In the event Gambian Tours paid for the visas, for which we were very grateful.
