Relaxing day on the pirogue boat cruising the creeks of the Gambia River. You can spot many birds during the trip through the mangroves. We saw pelicans, ospreys and herons. During the trip was an opportunity to swim on a small beach and there was a delicious lunch served. You also got the opportunity to fish, catch and release only.... More

This is always worth doing: if you can book direct that saves 30%, a 6- hour river trip into the more remote tributaries of the river Gambia plus lunch and fishing thrown in. You get to swim too, but be careful: the river current is very strong. A relaxing day out with bus rides included.

This full day tour starts with a 2.5 hour trip up the Gambia River on a boat. There is not much to see as the river is very wide. And the air is full of diesel fumes from the boat. They did serve a fairly nice lunch. The first stop is the Roots village where children sing for candy &... More

Very relaxing sunset cruise! About 2 hours. Great guide and wonderful wildlife. Full of mangroves and the oyster women collecting oysters from the mangroves is a sight to see.

We booked a cruise for a group of four people. The day was very relaxing, just chilling on the boat and fishing. The crew helped us with fishing and prepared us the most delicious lunch including local dishes such as chicken yassa. There's not much to do or see on the boat, but for those wishing to swim in the... More
